Hi, I'm a fairly recent convert (since I was 18 ) and I have a couple of questions for other Christians here:
1. Is it OK to get tattooed? I don't know the bible that well and was thinking of getting a tattoo of a cross you see
2. My biggest problem right now is that my family and most of my friends are all anti-religion so I can't really tell them I'm a Christian. With Christmas coming up I was wondering what I should do about Church services. I try and go to church when I can (but its pretty rare) but explaining myself away for Christmas services would be a lot harder
Any ideas or advice? Any help is appreciated
Well whterther your friends are atheist or not, they should respect your decision. even if your family doesnt like it, you should go to church if you want to. its your decision and an important at that, and will affect the rest of your life and the life thereafter. i say good job on stepping up to converting, despite your family and friends.
and the tatoo depends on what denomination. it is more than likely Ok, unless you are a Puritan or somehting. they believe all things fun are evil or somehting. so i doubt your puritan. so i say go for it.
i dont thik God really cares if you get one.
well if u want a tattoo go ahead and get one! but as far as ur friends and fam not being excepting, well hate to break it to you but thats what jesus told us life as a christian was gonna be like. he said "take up your own cross, and follow me" and in being a christian, the people in this world will with out a doubt give u all sorts of trouble and tell you that christ and christianity is phoney. but the voice of truth tells us a differently, its all for his glory! so stand tall, go to church and dont be intimidated!

Hey man im a catholic and i have a big celtic cross tatoo in the middle of my back. I figure its just another way to respect the faith. Just keep it clean.
Ive always believed that your only as close to god as you want to be. I dont always find time to go to church but i keep th faith. I pray everyday and try to keep my best. I think what it comes down to is this. Do what you think is right. Im sure thier is alot of people who are against tatoos but i dont care so i got one. If you feel that you would hurt people during christmas for practising a religion then you have to make the choice. god bless man

Good on you for converting, what denomenation are you? I don't think anyone will care, (including God) and if they do that's their problem, not yours. Just remember to take it all with a grain of salt, sometimes christians can get very conservative, often becoming impractical, like some preists wearing an alb in the middle of summer in blistering forty degree heat.
About the tatoo, you need to ask your preacher, (more than likely he'll [or she'll] have one ). It is all dependant on your denomination. Go to the christmas eve service. I am personally not christian, (i'm agnostic), but my dad is a preacher, and i still go every sunday (to play magic and sometimes warhammer after :rolleyes: the service) and the one i enjoy the most by far is the christmas eve service its really nice.

Mr. Burns: I'll decide when its christmas!
Look you've got to do what you've got to do as i come from a VERY long line of christians so my family flipped when i said i was becoming a budhist in fact theyn didn't talk to me for 5 weeks which was very hard but i pulled through and you can too as for the service thing just say your going to a friends house!

Hey Im pretty sure the bible doesn't say anything about tattoos so your probably ok in that department.
And your family should respect your decision to go to church and hey your nineteen any way your and adult who cares what they say now.
I guess I don't really have one. I wasn't converted by someone else, I converted myself. I've never really understood the differences between them all. My local Church is Baptist thoughOriginally Posted by RevolutionYeah this is what I was concerned about, so thats coolOriginally Posted by boxThis is what I normally do for sundays (or variations on it, like going shopping). But since my family is so anti-religion there is only so many times I can do this at the same time every Sunday, without them getting suspicious. How would this work on Christmas though? I'm worried that I'm going to have to choose between my religion and my family this Christmas (its my first as a Christian btw)Originally Posted by zeus
