CIRCUMCISION IS NOTHING
THE APOSTLE PAUL:
“For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.” Romans 2:28-29
THE APOSTLE PAUL TEACHES:
Circumcision is nothing = being a Jew is nothing.
Uncircumcision is nothing = being a Gentile is nothing.
THE APOSTLE PAUL: “Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but [what matters is] the keeping of the commandments of God.” 1 Cor 7:19 NAS
THE APOSTLE PAUL: “For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.” Gal 5:6
THE APOSTLE PAUL: “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.” Gal 6:15
Donna: This present world has two kingdoms. Satan is the god of this world* and the kingdom of God is ruled by the Messiah, Jesus Christ.
In the kingdom of God, all its citizens are a new creation. They have faith which worketh by love, and keep the commandments of God.
*2Co_4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
