Another reason I don't wear jewerly is that I made a vow when I was baptised. It's in my church's beliefs not to wear jewelry.

Yes, I go to church on Saturday.
I don't go to places on Friday night because sundown is the beginning of Sabbath and sundown Saturday is the end of Sabbath.

Your an adventist? What church do you go to if you don't mind me asking? I used to go to Gettysburg and Catoctin

Sorry, my last comment was off topic.

Well in regards to the main topic. I do not see anything wrong with anything you do to your body. Jesus himself said Love God and Love your neighbor. So, it seems to me, sinning must be either when you don't love God or if you hurt someone somehow. Getting a piercing or Tattoo doesn't seem to matter much if you look at it that way.

Just My opinion

But sinning covers so much more than just not loving God or not loving your neighbor. The Bible points out many other things that are sin. In the Ten Commandments, for example, He points out through Moses ten things not to do. Galatians 5 points out some traits of our sinful nature [sexual immorality, impurity, idolatry, witchcraft, jealousy, drunkenness, selfish ambition, etc.]. There are also many passages of Scripture that talk about sinning. Going against what God's Word says is going against what God says - and that is sinning. Sinning isn't just following what Jesus said is His greatest command, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." Or his second greatest command, "Love your neighbor as yourself." [Matthew 22:37,39] Though sinning definitely includes going against those things, it covers a lot more as well.

Notice that all of those things are things that are either against God or hurt others. One of the main things Jesus tried to teach us when he came was that there was no need for all the rules that the Jews of the old testiment imposed. He gave us two simple rules that are rather easy to follow. Love God and Love your neighbor. Fairly simple.

You're right, Jesus did make it clear that the rules won't get you to Heaven and we aren't to live entangled by the law like the Pharisees did. And in Matthew 5, in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus reinforces the laws of the Old Testament. He doesn't get rid of them. He doesn't even change them. He just reinforces them. Read Matthew 5 and see if that makes sense... because there's definitely more to sinning than just hurting others or not loving God. It is true, though, that our sin hurts others. It's also true that when we sin, we go against God... and if we truly loved God, we would do our best to not sin. Is that what you mean?

I think that piercings are fine. Nothing against them in the bible, or at least not any part that I've ever read.

It says not to mark yourself a member of any ungodly tribes my piercings or tattoos. I am not doing that. And I was wondering... I think you are Stephen. See if this refreshes your memory: Go Dog Go? lol

Is it a sin? I don't think so.

Does it look good? I don't think so.

I don't believe that it's a sin, I just HATE how their look (when they're not on the ears, that is).

It's not a sin, I would think.

For a guy, it's stupid. For a chick, it might actually look pretty.
