Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

9. The new testament specifically says that Christians are not supposed to be circumcised. See Galatians 5:6. In short, circumcision was the old covenant and Jesus the new covenant. There are even Jews who reject circumcision.


I read through this original post and looked up Galatians 5:6 and don't see where it says that Christians are not supposed to be circumcised? I agree that the Mosaic Law ended with Jesus and so the requirement for circumcision ended, but Gal 5:6 does not say Christians are not suppose to be circumcised. I even looked it up in a couple translations just to make sure.

". . . neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision . . . " KJV

It says ". . . neither circumcision is of any value nor is uncircumcision . . . " NWT

I think all the other points are interesting, very valid and true. If I had another baby and it was a boy, I doubt we'd circ. Just wondering about the validity of the Biblical argument.
