Church offers tatoos as a lesson in acceptance

1 min

Pastor Zack Zehnder from The Cross Mount Dora is changing the way his church members show their faith.

During a recent sermon about acceptance, he offered to pick up the tab for any church member who wanted to get the church logo permanently inked.

“I said it flippantly, not thinking anyone would really take me up on it,” responded Zehnder when asked about how it all started.

So far at least seven church members have taken him up on the offer.cross tatoo

“It’s a great way to show your faith,” says Stratton who got the church logo in blue and green inked on her right shoulder.  “It’s also a great way to start a conversation about faith.”

“Every tattoo has a story. The landscape of faith has struggled to keep up with the times.  So if we can create a way to start a conversation, it doesn’t get better than that,” says Zehnder.

Leviticus 19:28: Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.

I suppose people will tolerate just anything in the name of God…i mean as long as you are ‘doing’ it for God even if God has expressly commanded you not to you simply think He will say..”you know what-am cool with that”
