Funny title, I know. The day before yesterday, I got baby fussed at and told I know better because of the tattoos I have.
Leviticus 19:28 says: Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.
So, to some, no tattoos allowed.
But, my thing is, are the people gonna stop eating pig (Leviticus 11:3)? What about shellfish and catfish (Leviticus 11:9-12; Deuteronomy 14:9-10)? (https://www.myjewishlearning.com/article/food-laws-in-the-bible/)
Are the men and women gonna go back to wearing robes with different under garments?
Are the women gonna go elsewhere when that time comes every month since that made them unclean (Leviticus 15:19-30)?
The law, the Pentateuch, the Torah, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy were for the children of God, Israelites, Jews in the Old Testament. While a tricky subject to define the differentiation, the Old Testament, especially the laws in the first five books, does not apply literally in every sense to New Testament believers, a.k.a Christians.
Jesus died and fulfilled the law making it no longer the thing that governs the lives of Christians in the same way that it did in the Old Testament (Matthew 5:17).
There are things about appearance discussed in the New Testament. But, per the revelation and understanding I have, it is more metaphorical than instructive.
We can’t just say one thing is wrong but the other or others are not. That’s my opinion. I didn’t really say much back. And I won’t. Cuz, at the end of the day, convictions are personal. It stinks that some things are just man made rules and traditions and are harmful.
However, I have spent enough time in my Bible and with Jesus to be okay doing me and not worrying about others, who have no heaven or hell to put me in, think. I used to care. But naaaaaaaah.
They didn’t save me, keep me, heal me, or deliver me. They don’t get to run what I do over here. And that’s on Mary had a little lamb.
I’m gonna go try to figure out how to be where the money reside. If you are clueless about how left this went, search the internet for those last two sentences and it will all make sense. 🙂
