Many people, young and old have Patchwork tattoos on different parts of their bodies. Irrespective of the clear warning in Leviticus 19:28 many Christians still see Patchwork tattoos as being okay to have.
Today I present 3 reasons why believers should avoid Patchwork tattoos

Tattoos have an evil origin
Humans have marked their bodies with tattoos for thousands of years. These permanent designs—sometimes plain, sometimes elaborate, always personal—have served as amulets, status symbols, declarations of love, signs of religious beliefs, adornments, and even forms of punishment. Joann Fletcher, the research fellow in the department of archaeology at the University of York in Britain, describes the history of tattoos and their cultural significance to people around the world, from the famous ” Iceman,” a 5,200-year-old frozen mummy, to today’s Maori.
In terms of tattoos on actual bodies, the earliest known examples were for a long time Egyptian and were present on several female mummies dated to c. 2000 B.C. But following the more recent discovery of the Iceman from the area of the Italian-Austrian border in 1991 and his tattoo patterns, this date has been pushed back a further thousand years when he was carbon-dated at around 5,200 years old.
Patchwork tattoos symbolize gangsterism
Today several Gangs and cult groups are identified by the symbols inscribed on their body or on their cars. Most times these gangs/cult groups inflict severe pain on the bodies of their members to imprint their sacred symbols on them. This practice is not of God and has no place in the life of a Christian.
Patchwork tattoos are condemned in Gods’ word
Above all. The main reason all Christians should stay away from Patchwork tattoos or any other form of tattoo is that the word of God condemns it.
For believers who had such tattoos while they were still in the world, there is no discrimination as we all were once sinners but have been washed by the blood of the lamb. God still loves us all even with the marks on our bodies.

From the very beginning of human beings, humanity has found a way to transform life-promoting technologies into tools of death. In modern times, we see this: combining ultrasound technology with loose abortion methods can more easily identify the sex of a child so that children without a Y chromosome can die before birth. Similarly, during the pandemic, we saw another medical technology, telemedicine, become a weapon against the fetus.
Telemedicine involves the use of electronic communications and software to provide clinical services to patients without the need for an in-person consultation. The combination of advances in video technology and high-speed Internet access has made it increasingly possible to provide high-quality medical services to remote areas.
Although this technology has been around for many years, it has not been widely adopted by patients or medical providers. But the epidemic has changed all this. As a recent study noted, “The COVID19 pandemic has forced the rapid implementation of telemedicine in daily practice. As various levels of telemedicine are transformed into practice on a global scale, once seemingly noble and futuristic goals became a reality in the blink of an eye. ” An eye. ”
This transition from face-to-face to online also affected abortion providers. Due to the closure of abortion clinics due to COVID, abortion providers have begun providing abortion services that are only telemedicine.
From surgery to medical abortion
To understand the rise of telemedicine abortion, it is necessary to understand current abortion methods.
The two main methods of legal abortion in the United States are drugs and surgery. Surgical abortion is a method in which a child is dismembered in the womb and a small tube is suctioned (suctioned) from the body part and inserted into the womb. It is still the most common form of miscarriage and about 60% of miscarriages are surgical abortions.
Another method is a medical abortion, sometimes called chemical abortion. This method uses an abortion pill (a chemical or drug that causes the death of an embryo) to stimulate uterine contractions similar to abortion.
The most common chemical abortion method approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) involves the drugs mifepristone and misoprostol. Mifepristone (trade name Mifeprex) terminates pregnancy by blocking the hormone progesterone necessary to maintain pregnancy. Because this hormone is blocked, the endometrium begins to fall off, pulling the attached child (in an embryonic state).
The second step occurs 24 to 48 hours later and requires misoprostol, which causes the woman to expel the child and the endometrium. In 2018, 38.6% of all miscarriages were medical miscarriages within eight weeks of pregnancy.
When mifepristone was approved in 2000, the agency imposed major restrictions, including requiring providers to obtain special certification to store medicines and distribute them only in clinics, doctors’ offices, or hospitals.
However, although women should only take mifepristone in these clinical settings, the FDA allows them to swallow the pills later at home without clinical supervision. This prompted the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and other groups to file a lawsuit, forcing the FDA to allow abortion pills to be prescribed through telemedicine and mailed directly to pregnant women. In response to this, the FDA stated that as long as the COVID19 public health emergency announced by the president is supported, it will “exercise compliance discretion on the requirement to dispense mifepristone in person.” This means that the agency will not enforce prescription requirements face-to-face during the pandemic. It is also becoming clear that pre-pandemic standards may not be restored.
Research conducted during the pandemic indicated that medical abortion through telemedicine is no more dangerous for mothers than obtaining abortion pills directly from the clinic. This will be used by abortion activists as evidence that telemedicine-only abortions should be allowed even after the pandemic is over.
Currently, 19 states prohibit telemedicine-only abortions by requiring physicians who perform medical abortions to be present at the time of drug delivery. However, the number of states with such bans is more likely to decrease rather than increase.
Be prepared, but don’t despair.
Telemedicine abortion is likely to be the future of abortion in the United States. Read more
