I believe circumcision is a nonsense



Come on, circumcision was commanded by God Himself in the Old Law, and just a couple of days ago we commemorated the circumcision of the Lord. And remember how Moses almost died because he delayed the circumcision of his son?

We just don't do it anymore because the old law was fulfilled in Christ and we live in the New Covenant. To say its an abuse is a bit of exaggeration.

Look at it this way: if fasting and spending time in prayer were not of benefit to the spirit, it would be abusive to command it, because it wouldn't be giving up a good for a greater good, it would be reducing goods for no reason. Similarly, if disciplining a child was not good for their character but produced no benefit, it would be abusive to do so. In the same way, it is abusive to circumcise a child for the frivolous reasons Americans do today.
