Good Morning brothers and sisters. I had a conversation yesterday and it basically said that one could not be a Christ follower because of the piercings and tattoos. They used 1 Corinthians 6:19. Well I looked at that Scripture in the whole context. I am going to put it here and we are going to discuss it. 1 Corinthians 6:12-19- 12-All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. 13-Foods for the stomach and the stomach for foods, but God will destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for sexual immorality but for the Lord and the Lord for the body. 14- And God both raised up the Lord and will also raise us up by His power. We could stop right there and combat them by saying, "God has changed them and they are not who they once were. He raised them up just like Jesus." That would end the argument. But let's go on. 15- Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! 16- Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For the two, He says, shall become one flesh. Ok guys you are also held accountable just like women for your sexual immorality. If you do it, then you have become one like in marriage. This is why sex is sacred. 17- But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him. Hello!! 18- Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body; but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. 19- Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God and you are not your own? 20- For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's. Now see if they did all that before they had the Holy Spirit dwelling in them it can and will be forgiven. And I bet my last dollar God will use their piercings and tattoos to reach someone else. But if you noticed this whole conversation is about sexual immorality. Nothing we have belongs to us once we submit to Jesus Christ. We become one with His Spirit. Before I hear another conversation like this please make sure you are letting the Holy Spirit lead your life before we try and lead someone else life. Rant over. Have a blessed day and rise up children of God, rise up!
