We have freedom now, because Christ made us free. So stand strong. Do not change and go back into the slavery of the law.
Listen, I Paul tell you that if you go back to the law by being circumcised, Christ does you no good.
Again, I warn every man: If you allow yourselves to be circumcised, you must follow all the law.
If you try to be made right with God through the law, your life with Christ is over -- you have left God's grace.
But we have the true hope that comes from being made right with God, and by the Spirit we wait eagerly for this hope.
When we are in Christ Jesus, it is not important if we are circumcised or not. The important thing is faith -- the kind of faith that works through love.
