The Bible doesn’t say cosmetic surgery is wrong – Tony Rapu

Pastor Tony Rapu has stated that the Bible doesn’t say anything about cosmetic surgery which is why he believes it is not wrong.

According to Tony Rapu, cosmetic surgery can be used to fix a defect which might be ruining one’s self-esteem.

He, however, kicked against the idea of using cosmetic surgery to draw attention to oneself.

In a video on his Instagram page, the popular cleric said: ”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 is concious of a deformity or physical aspect of his or her body that is causing them some emotional discomfort, then cosmetic surfery 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 surgerues, especially when the surgery is noninvasive 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 seated 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.”
