Even those who practice circumcision do not obey the Law; they want you to be circumcised so that they can boast that you submitted to this physical ceremony.
As for me, however, I will boast only about the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ; for by means of his cross the world is dead to me, and I am dead to the world.
It does not matter at all whether or not one is circumcised; what does matter is being a new creature.
As for those who follow this rule in their lives, may peace and mercy be with them - with them and with all of God's people!
To conclude: let no one give me any more trouble, because the scars I have on my body show that I am the slave of Jesus.
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, my friends. Amen.
