Uncircumcision speaks of unique, original man: his intellect, his reasoning ability, his determination, his inquisitiveness, his thoughtfulness, his disposition, his attitudes, his morality.
Circumcision suggests slight changes---what man can do to make himself better: his venturesomeness, his ingenuity, his technology, his resourcefulness, his perceptiveness, his communicativeness, his sensitivities.
Some Biblical Insight...
"Neither circumcision nor
uncircumcision means anything;
what counts is a new CREATION."
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is
a new CREATION; the old has gone,
the new has come." 2 Cor 5:17.
"For we are God's workmanship,
CREATED in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for us to do."
"You were taught, with regard to your former
way of life, to put off your old self,
which is being corrupted by its
to be made new in the attitude of your minds;
and to put on the new self, CREATED to be
like God in true righteousness and holiness."
On that last, final day, what will really count? It will be whether or not a spiritual creation has been transacted in each of our lives---through the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth. The risk of ignoring or shunning Him is momentous.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
