3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Get A Tattoo!
I have been watching a lot of basketball games lately with my family. My son is very passionate about basketball and wants to become a professional one day. I support my son in just about everything he wants to do, but getting a tattoo isn’t one of them….
Basketball players as well as other sports figures, rappers, actors, rock bands, gang members and just about every young person now, has a tattoo.
When I was in high school 25 yrs ago, tattoos were simple. Maybe one on the ankle or on the arm. Now tattoos are worn as “sleeves” where the entire arm is covered. The chest, back and leg areas are now covered. And some of us women know about the sexual “tramp stamp” which is when the tattoo is worn on the lower back and meant to be seen when you bend over or squat.
People get tattoos for different reasons. Some, just because it’s the “in thing” to do. Others, as memories of loved ones or events in their lives. And some to be initiated into gangs, fraternities and sororities. What ever the reason – God does not approve and here’s 3 reasons why:
→ Satan is pushing his occult religion of worshiping Baal, an idol god, back to Earth – so he can be worshiped. 1 Corinthians 10:19-21 says, “Do I mean then that a sacrifice offered to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything? No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons.” Baal worshipers wore tattoos on their hands to receive more power. Tattoos are a part of idol worship. Simply put - God says you can’t serve two masters. You have to choose.
→ God does not approve of any tattoos and never did. Leviticus 19:28 says, “Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord.” Your body belongs to God and it’s His temple. God doesn’t even need us to wear a religious tattoo on our bodies to represent Him – our words and actions should do that! The root of tattooing never changes. It will always be a pagan, spiritual ritual.
→ The ultimate purpose is to desensitize ourselves to cutting and marking our bodies, so the Antichrist (Satan in human form) can tattoo 666 on our forehead and hands. Revelation 13:16-18 says, “He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number – His number is 666.” If you can easily get a tattoo today, when the 666 number becomes a requirement, you will already be accustomed to the system of body marking. It’s all a part of Satan’s plan.
If you are a Christian who struggles with this issue, just know that God does not approve. All markings are of Satan, because Satan goes against everything God allows. If God says not to do something, Satan figures out a new way to make it exciting and popular. But as we know, nothing is new under the sun…
After you read this article and want to be delivered from this, please pray to God to forgive you. You may not be able to get rid of your tattoos if you have them, but you don’t have to continue in sin. The saying goes “once you know better – you do better” And God says “once you know His word – you are held accountable.”
