If it was for personal conviction as a Christian, then again, the medical circumcision would not be of benefit because medical circumcision is not the type of circumcision of the Old Testament and does not fulfill the Abrahamic covenant, plus we have the new covenant of Jesus through baptism that supersedes circumcision.
correct and Christ clarifies the circumcision as a spiritual circumcision (stripping/cutting away of your old life) not a physical one.
