  • does this contradict or is it a mepthaor

    And I put a ring on your nose and earrings in your ears and a beautiful crown on your head


    You shall not make any cuts on your body for the dead or tattoo yourselves: I am the Lord.

    They are not contradicting each other because they are not talking about the same thing.

    Read Ezekiel 16:9-14 = This is a description from God how he beautified Israel as a woman would be beautified. Rings, washings, expensive clothing, expensive shoes, anointing, necklaces, bracelets, etc......God said he did all of this for Israel.

    After that passage, God describes how Israel used that beauty [spiritual beauty] and chased after other gods.

    The passage about cuttings and marking one's self like pagans did for their gods is an Old Testament law for Israel. Tattoos don't always fall into that sinful category.

    No contradiction.

        The cuts and markings that were banned in the Old Testament law were ones that were made for demonic reasons and for pagan gods. Pierced earring that are simply for personal expression is not a sin.

        If a person has a tattoo of the devil, sexual images, or the grotesque - that's very pagan and sinful. Other tattoos such as a butterfly, a cross, an image of a loved one, or a Bible verse/favorite encouraging saying.....those are not sinful as they are not done for sake of pagan idolatry.

        A simple earring, nose ring, and even a belly button ring, while not everyone's cup of tea, is not sinful.

        The point of that Old Testament civil law that does not pertain to Christian's today was what was done for the devil's sake and what was not.

        I have pierced ears [three in each ear, although one has grown back]. This is not a sin. It's not even a violation of Old Testament law.

            We will have to agree to disagree. Read Leviticus 19:28 for yourself and see that is it talking about pagan cuttings and markings for the dead.

                Brother, as a male... do you shave your face or if you have a beard, trim it? When you get a haircut, you have the hair at the temples of your head trimmed also?
