However, each one must live his life in the situation the Lord assigned when God called him. This is what I command in all the churches.
Was anyone already circumcised when he was called? He should not undo his circumcision. Was anyone called while uncircumcised? He should not get circumcised.
Circumcision does not matter and uncircumcision does not matter, but keeping God's commandments does.
Each person should remain in the life situation in which he was called.
Were you called while a slave? It should not be a concern to you. But if you can become free, by all means take the opportunity.
For he who is called by the Lord as a slave is the Lord's freedman. Likewise he who is called as a free man is Christ's slave.
You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men.
Brothers, each person should remain with God in whatever situation he was called.
