David Dunham looks at two verses that people cite to condemn Christians getting tatoo’s. Here is an excerpt from his discussion of Leviticus 19:28 which reads, “You shall not tatoo yourselves.”
Verse 27 states that men should not trim their sideburns or beards. Why is it that my critics are quick to cite verse 28, but do not themselves see a problem with breaking verse 27? We can both trim our facial hair and tattoo our bodies because these commands are part of Jewish civil law and therefore do not apply to Christians.
