Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

Just finished reading about some biblical aspects (if you are a Believer) in regards to circ'ing and basically it is unnecessary. Google "biblical reason for circumcision" get out your Bible and just read.

In a nutshell:
-Circumcision in the OT was a sacrifice similar to sacrificing innocent animals for the shedding of blood as atonement for sin.
-History concludes during OT times, the procedure was probably a small cut or nip rather than complete removal of skin the way modern circumcision is done.
-Jesus was the ultimate atonement for sin. Circumcision was not necessary after him.
-Under the NT, it was more important to be circumcised of the the heart rather than physical.

Just some things to think about if the medical debate for and against still has someone on the fence. More than ever I am confident that I did the right thing by leaving DS exactly as God made him.

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

About the post on the selling of foreskins. Dh watches Trauma: Life in the ER and they actually said that they were using foreskins to treat burn victims. It made me sick.

I am still against it and now expecting a baby boy. Dh is for it still, but I am not making the appointment and dh won't call for any appointment so I'm hoping that he doesn't push it anymore. We haven't had THE talk yet but he knows my views on it.
