God keeps challenging me to be more pure in my thought life, viewing life, time spent with him and how much of the world I let creep into my faith. Not long ago, we were having a discussion in our church group about the message some "Christian" music groups were sending with tattoos and body piercing. I felt that the representation was disrespectful of the temple that was our body and that it was too close to many pagan and occult rituals for me to be comfortable with it.
What a man in our group said really surprised me. It wasn't the words themselves but hearing them from a respected church member. He said "So if their tattoos were crosses or of Christ would you still feel it was wrong? I was not able to answer to my personal satisfaction, but was always troubled by his comment.
After reading some of the things that are on your website, I now see all the destination and influence the world and TV has had on this "Christian" family. They are both still heavy in the opinions and approvals of the secular community in which they both work. It struck me as so "New Age" that it was scary. Thank you for helping me to remember my responsibility to my family, peers and most of all my God and Savior Jesus Christ. 1 Timothy 4:15&16
