When Christians Turn into Cannibals - Body Piercing, Cremation, and Tattoos
October 14, 2013
Throughout the 1800s, Christian missionaries worked hard to turn cannibals into Christians. Now Christians are moving in the other direction. It's not hard to understand the elements of pagan culture. Pagans eat blood, get tattoos, mutilate their bodies, take their clothes off, cremate bodies at death, and perform infanticide. Sadly, Christians have been slowly incorporating these pagan rites into their own cultural practices. Kevin Swanson goes back to some of the basic elements of Christian belief and practice. Why do Christians convocate on the first day of the week? Why have Christians been pro-life from the beginning? Why do Christians refuse to get tattoos or mutilate their bodies? Why do Christians insist on modest clothing? Why do Christians refuse to drink blood? Why do Christians believe in justification by faith alone? Why do we as Christians refuse to separate God's forgiveness from our love and obedience to His commands? Culture is a true indication of the heart commitment.
