  8. I am amazed at how much religious scripture there is about not circumcising. It can be found in about any religion, yet so many people ignore this information. In my opinion, genital cutting is an evil practice. I am sure many of the people who actually do the cutting may not be evil, but what they are doing is very evil. I long for the day they break the evil spell and take a look at what they are doing, and stop it forever.

  9. Ok-I'm going to share my struggle with this.
    I'm a christian, and I do not feel that I need to have my boys circumcised in order to be holy, loved by God, obedient etc. I do realize that God said that men no longer needed to be cirucmcised.

    HOWEVER:
    I wonder why God ever asked this of anyone in the first place.(old testament.) Was that version of circumcising as awful as what it is today?

    I was advised to cut my boys (10 years ago) and regret it with every fiber of my being. I was told it was cleaner, and that they'd have fewer *problems*.

    It sounded awful to me, but someone pointed out to me "if it was so awful, do you think God would ever ask anyone to do it to their baby?"
    That was the only reason I allowed it to happen.

    I've since read that biblical circumcision was entirely different than that performed by our extremely thorough western doctors.

    I wish I can reverse it, but I can't. I know there are "ways"...but I think that would be up to them, when they're grown.

    1. I know how you're feeling, Corrabelle. I've been there too, and the paster we have now is very open and honest about everything - including antiquity practices of genital cutting, among other things. But those we grew up with (my husband and I) were very hush-hush about anything pertaining to sex and there was no way we were going to get a lesson on circumcision. So, we just did what "everyone" did, and had our son circumcised. We were clueless to any aspect of it. And I regret it now significantly, but like you said, restoration is his choice to make when the time comes that he's an adult. I won't go messing with his body any more. But I DO hope that some other pastors consider looking into this subject and including a workshop or class or something for parents so that the congregation can be informed on the topic. It is too important to ignore, and we should love our sons enough to be able to talk about it among fellow Christians.

      You have likely already read this, but if not, it is a good one on Biblical Circumcision: http://www.drmomma.org/2010/07/biblical-circumcision-information.html

  11. Circumcision is cruel. Some doctor botched my circumcision when I was an infant and now I have a deformed, horrible-looking mistake. I would never do this to my son. God gave us all a beautiful, perfectly designed body.

  12. Biblical circumsion was no where near what they do now. The foreskin was not removed at all. Today's circ is purely cosmetic. I also believe circ was done away with and it is now circumcision of the heart, not physical cutting. My son is intact and I am so thankful. I grew up assuming if I had a boy, he would be circ'd. Then I saw a video of it being done and that pushed me to research it more.
