As mentioned in the intro to this series (Why Christians With Piercings Are Not Sinful – (Usually)), I have piercings in my face. This means I’ve heard many, many objections to them firsthand.
So let’s start with the most common objections. “Why would we start here?” you may wonder, and I have my reasons. It’s important that you understand I’m not lying when I say I’ve seriously heard them all. I don’t want to be explaining the good thinking on this topic only to have you thinking, “Yea, but…”, the whole time.
Also, this way, when we get to sorting through how to think well on this controversial issue, we can refer back to these common objections and deal with them specifically. Also, I want you to note, I’m not making any of these up, these are all ones that I’ve heard directly.
