Conclusion Of Circumcision

I. Circumcision
The word circumcision is a medical term meaning to remove the foreskin of (a male). Circumcision is also the removal of part of the clitoris for (females). However, Circumcise first appears in the Old Testament in Genesis 17:11; God told Abram that he will be circumcised in the flesh as a way to show his covenant with the Lord. In the Old Testament circumcision was done with a sharp flint stone. It wasn’t just for the Israelites, but it also was for the foreigners and servants. Later we read that God is talking to Moses in Deuteronomy 10:16, were he makes a covenant with Moses. Verse 16, God tells Moses “circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no longer stubborn” (Deuteronomy 10:16). This is a parallel meaning.

Conclusion In the New Testament ,Paul not only just uses these words in Colossians 2:11 and 2:14. When I researched these words, it was clear that we are not circumcised in the flesh. It is a circumcision that only can be done by God. Jesus cancels (destroyed) the curse that was upon us because of sin by giving his life. With his death, resurrection and the power we have been made participants in the covenant that we are saved. We are not saved by our own doing, but by the love of Christ, his will and power. In addition, Jesus canceled the debt that was on our lives by simply giving his life. He paid the cost and suffered for us to be free from sin and to have a good relationship with the Father our God by the shedding his blood. We all should walk authority that Jesus has paid in full. He has erased the charge against us and circumcised the hearts of those who believe in him that we are partakers of his promise of everlasting life. The without hands says that we as believers are not living in the flesh, and it manipulates ways but in the spirit. Moreover, for the believer the sins of Adam have been erased and forgiven through Jesus. Oh, what good news, this is for all believers. We do not have to live in sin and shame, but in the Glory of

    Paul, in his letter, explains that despite humans being sinners, and the introduction of sin into mankind from free will, God still sent his only son to earth to die for us, opening the gates of heaven. O’Collins’ conclusion on this passage and other Biblical passages that provide evidence into God’s divine love is, “God’s initiative of love clarifies the story of salvation” (Christology, p.300). O’Collins argues that we cannot understand the story of salvation if we don’t find and appreciate that there is evidence showing that God loves us. If we can understand divine love from God then we can reason why Christ is the redeemer of the world. Christ becoming the redeemer was started by God’s act of divine love, Christ being put on the cross and dying for our sins, something Benedict in Deus caritas est also argues.…

    The grace of God is the gift of salvation granted to sinners for their redemption. The common Christian teaching is that grace is unmerited mercy (favor) that God gave to humanity by sending his son to die on a cross, thus delivering eternal salvation. Although Jesus stood alone to face His accusers, we never have to. When the powers of this world, seen and unseen, condemn us, Jesus is always standing alongside not to protest our innocence, but to offer Himself as the one who has already stood trial for our sins. Ephesians 2:8 says, "For by grace are you saved, through faith, and that not of yourselves."…

    Are you afraid of being blessed? We can miss the things of God if we don 't know and understand that we have a right to His Blessings. We must rebuke the spirit of poverty in our lives. We will never do anything special until we acknowledge that we are special and act like it. Romans 5:17, ‘For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God 's abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.’ When we apply the Blood of Jesus to our lives, we are pardoned of our sins.…

    Again Jesus’ undividedness is proven, it is the sin of the world that John indicated, not the sinfulness of the Jews. The continuous habit of the phrase “the world” in the scriptures of the Bible it comes to be even more apparent that Jesus Christ was brought into “the world”; to be a Protector and a Redeemer for both the pagans and the Jews. Jesus Christ extended God’s recognition of individuals. The “new Christians” did not have to be Jewish in order to receive the healing and redemption of Jesus or “comply with the law”. All they had to do was believe and accept that Jesus was the Son of God, and that he sacrificed himself for our sins.…

    In order to restore peace, Jesus gave his whole self to God. The harmony between Jesus and God can be seen as an act that lead to His death. Williams explains, “Appropriately, the Nicene Creed keeps it simple- just a few words: ‘for us and our salvation’” (Williams, 88). Even after everything that happened to Jesus on the cross, He is still at peace with God. The crucifixion of Jesus Christ displays God’s existence at one of the worst times.…

    C. Paul is saying that we cannot do anything to gain Christ. We do not have to bring him down from heaven (Deuteronomy 30:11-14), nor do we have to go down to the grave. All we have to do is believe because when we believe in him, we receive him. We have the Word that brings life to our body, soul and mind. Then, can we receive righteousness by faith.…

    What is the Muslim view of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ? We as Muslims believe that Jesus (peace be upon him) did not die on the cross, Allah lifted him, and he will return on the Day of Judgment to fight the Dajjal (the false messiah). On the topic of religion generally, Sana said: “Personally, I believe that religions are simple, the message is clear, guidance is there for anyone who wishes to follow, but we humans make it so complicated.” From Sana’s answers to my questions, I can see that our faiths have as many similarities as differences. For example, we both believe the scriptures to be the word of God to the extent that they have not been altered by man. We believe that God has communicated with man through the prophets He sends from the time of Adam forward.…

    (Job 40:4) No one truly understands the gravity of their sins and when we feel that we can stand before God on our own merits we are deceived. The other assumption is that if we cannot see the good in suffering then there must not be any. This leads to the next section of Salvifici Doloris, how Jesus brings good out of suffering. The message of salvation is clear; Jesus suffered and dies to save us from Sin. Jesus suffering saved us from Hell an enabled those who repent to gain eternal life.…

    What counts is where I am going” (Jantz, 1998, p. 18). The sins of my past are forgiven, but that doesn’t mean I can continue to sin in my path forward with God. I am called to confess my sin and He will be faithful and just to forgive me. I know Christ died to atone for my sins, but it is hard to fathom why God would sacrifice His only Son in such a horrific way to atone for the sins of the world. This sacrifice is confirmed in Colossians 1:20-21, “and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.…
