I have seen many young people with all sorts of body piercings and tattoos and always wonder what possesses them to do such things to their bodies. Piercings and tattoos are painful to get!
I understand piercing the ear lobes for post earrings, but how many holes does one ear need? I’ve even read and heard of piercings in the most intimate of places and can’t understand the reasons behind them unless they are from some evil suggestions.
A small tattoo here or there is bad enough (especially with women) but when tattoos cover huge areas of the body, I have to wonder how much pain was endured and for what purpose?
Aside from piercings and tattoos, there are the huge rings some put in their ears which make the person look absurd!
When I saw the photo above my first thought was “demon possession.” I can think of no other reason or cause. Then I wondered how much demonic influence is leading our young people to mutilate the bodies that God has given them.
Leviticus 19:28 tells the Jews/Israelites to not do such things “for the dead,” which I always take to mean in honor of the dead in some fashion. So if one is not doing it “for the dead,” does that make it okay? I would suggest the answer is, “no, it is not okay.”
Mutilation of one’s body, whether for the nonsensical and unscientific ideology of “trans” persons or for any other reason, has to be based on sinful desires to begin with.
The human body is the home of our spirit, and for Christians it is also the temple of the Holy Spirit. Desecrating God’s temple is sin. Which is why Satan would probably like it when people do as the person in the photo has done.
