So the Bible told you this??

Hmmm. So the Bible told you to circumcise your kid, right? You mean THIS Bible?

“It is those who want to make a good showing in the flesh that would compel you to be circumcised, and only in order that they may not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. For even those who receive circumcision do not themselves keep the law, but they desire to have you circumcised that they may glory in your flesh. But far be it from me to glory except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. For neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. Peace and mercy be upon all who walk by this rule, upon the Israel of God.” – Galatians 6:12-16.

“For there are many who rebel against right teaching; they engage in useless talk and deceive people. This is especially true of those who insist on circumcision for salvation. They must be silenced. By their wrong teaching, they have already turned whole families away from the truth. Such teachers only want your money.” – Titus 1:10-11

“Watch out for those wicked men – dangerous dogs, I call them – who say you must be circumcised. Beware of the evil doers. Beware of the mutilation. For it isn’t the cutting of our bodies that makes us children of God; it is worshiping him with our spirits.” – Phil 3:2-3

“And I testify again to every male who receives circumcision, that he is in debt to keep the whole Law. You who do so have been severed from Christ…you have fallen from grace.” – Gal 5:3

“But if I still proclaim circumcision. . . then the stumbling block of the cross has been abolished.” – Gal 5:11

“I wish that those who are pushing you to do so would mutilate themselves!” – Gal 5:12

“But reject profane and old wives fables, and exercise yourself towards godliness.” – 1 Timothy 4:7

“Behold, I, Paul, tell you that if you be circumcised, Christ will be of no advantage to you.” – Galatians 5:2

“As God has called each man, in this manner let him walk. And thus I command in all the churches. Was any man called in the circumcision [i.e. Old Covenant]? Let him not try to become uncircumcised. Has anyone been called in the uncircumcision [i.e. New Covenant]? Let him not be circumcised! Circumcision is nothing. And uncircumcision is nothing but the keeping of the commandments of God. Let each man remain in that condition in which he was called.” – 1 Corinthians 7:17
“For freedom, Christ has set us free; stand fast therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Now I, Paul, say to you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will be of no advantage to you. I testify again to every man who receives circumcision that he is bound to keep the whole law. You are severed from Christ, you who would be justified by the law; you have fallen away from grace. For through the Spirit, by faith, we can wait for the hope of righteousness. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision is of any avail, but faith working through love.” – Galatians 5:1

Just sayin’.

  1. I really liked the whole post on circumcision. I have always wandered why people said cutting the foreskin off your penis was in the bible. Must have beenan idea of those crazy jews. I now know for certain what i have always thought; that they are the weird ones for being circumsized. I have always been comfortable with my penis and definatly never had any complaints but wondered why people would think its funny or something to have a non-mutilated penis. Strictly vanity is what im guessing. If there is a god, i definatly agree with what the bible said about ‘let each man remain in the condition in which he was called.’

    1. Thanks for stopping by.

      The circumcision procedure that we know today IS NOT the circumcision procedure of Biblical times. I plan on doing a follow up article about this very soon.

      I’m glad to hear that you have no issues as an intact man. It irks me to no end when people spout nonsense about how it will be such a great burden, and they’ll have to be circumcised later, blah blah blah.

      My sons are all intact and I stand strong in that but it still is nice anytime I hear an intact guy say they’ve no issues. If that makes sense. 🙂
