Does Bible ban tattoos? No, says shopping mall church that has cage fighting, too
Pastor Steve Bentley feels an urgency to reach folks who aren't interested in traditional church ...
But what about Leviticus 19:28, which plainly says, “You shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves.” That would seem pretty straightforward.
Yeah, counters Bentley, but what about Isaiah 44:5, which proclaims in part: “This one will say, ‘I am the Lord’s’ and … another will write on his hand, ‘Belonging to the Lord.’ And will name Israel’s name with honor.”
