This is a hot topic around this time of the year because of Passover. I keep hearing so many stories of Hebrews getting circumcised as adults when they discover the Truth of Torah and what our Messiah came to preach! It’s the difference between getting a circumcision to be saved and getting a circumcision because you have ALREADY been saved.
Heart before flesh. That is all you are seeing here.
We had this year someone who got upset because they were not invited to Passover because this was a known issue. It’s easy. Hebrews are circumcised. It’s one of the many ways the Father sets HIS PEOPLE apart from the rest of the world. Exodus 12:48 leaves little to misinterpretation.
As for Paul, Did he say to never get circumcised? Or did he point out over and over again that it was not to be done according to the directives of men? The same is done today with preachers who GLORY over the number of people they can get in their water baptistries. The same was done in Paul’s day. Read Carefully!
“For neither they(RELIGIOUS LEADERS) themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have YOU circumcised, that they may GLORY in your flesh.
I can’t count how many churches I have been to that put up pictures or numbers on a wall or bulletin, GLORIFYING in how many professions of faith or baptisms they had last month. They are who Paul speaks about! It’s the same thing!
Heart BEFORE the flesh.
