Popular Pastor Tony Rapu has weighed in on the heated debate about plastic surgery and spirituality, morality and religion.
There have been people who have stated that plastic surgery is ungodly, a point of view Tony Rapu disagrees with.
There are plastic surgery procedures that are used to save lives and the Pastor pointed out that there is nowhere in the bible that states that body enhancement is bad.
He did offer a caveat, stating that modifying one’s body simply to be more sexually appealing is a bit of a problem.
He said in a video on Social media: ”The bible is silent about plastic surgery and there is really nothing in it that tells us it is wrong, so there has to be other considerations. If a person If a person is conscious of a deformity or physical aspect of his or her body that is causing them some emotional discomfort, then cosmetic surgery is certainly an option. There are women who have had mastectomies and have had to have breast implants and we know many people who have benefited from surgeries, especially when the surgery is non-invasive and the side effects are minimal.
“There really is nothing wrong with enhancing the quality of a person’s life by surgery especially when the person is able to breathe better, walk better, or talk better and especially when psychological health is improved.
“The challenge is when surgery begins to be an attempt to meet an emotional void in a physical way or to attract unnecessary attention to a person, or to seek approval from other people. In some of these cases, we are then beginning to deal with psychological issues or deep seethed insecurities in a person. If surgery is for sexual attractiveness, simply because you want to be found more sexually attractive, then perhaps you are dealing with a deeper issue in terms of esteem.
“So if surgery is for enhancing a vanity, then we are dealing with issues internally that surgery would probaby never be able to satisfy”
