Circumcision: Biblical vs. Modern [e-book version]
The act of circumcision has left modern man perplexed. What does it mean? Is it necessary? Do we do it or don’t we? Do we do it for health reasons or for religious reasons—or both? Is it archaic? Can we jettison the procedure completely? As a father, what should I decide about it, for myself and then for my son?
As if these questions were not enough, let us ask another question entirely—which is the primary question of this book. Is the manner in which we do circumcision biblical? Has the medical establishment gone beyond the Creator’s original intent for this procedure? If so, what have been the consequences?
Actually, there are two kinds of circumcision: the true biblical circumcision, which is a harmless and minimal ritual that is a mark of the covenant, and rabbinic/medical circumcision, which is an unnecessary mutilation. Read this e-book to understand the difference. This is a frank presentation of a topic that has heretofore been largely taboo, with the result that some are needlessly suffering from the results of following a tradition that is much altered from the original. The light shed on this topic can further every family’s happiness, health and holiness.
The position taken in this book is that the biblical teaching on male circumcision has been mutilated over time, resulting in a destructive practice, on the one hand, and (increasingly), a recent total disregard of the practice, on the other hand—even by many who would claim to be people of faith in the God of the Bible. Read this overview of the topic to gain what may perhaps be a new perspective for you regarding the Creator’s commands in instituting the practice, how it has been changed over time, and what you can do about it now.
This information will be especially useful to you if you know ahead of time that you are about to have a son—a baby boy. It’s much better to think about this topic now, rather than once he is born. At the time that parents make the circumcision decision, typically within eight days (which we will explain later), many are not aware of the information that is presented here. By not studying the information that would intelligently guide them through their choices on this issue, some are deciding against circumcision by default. Doctors usually do not provide this information.
Care in presenting these concepts:
Most of us are ill-informed about topics like this one, largely due to concerns about propriety and modesty. This book was written exclusively for adults who want to follow biblical teachings for life and practice and who want to study further this most sensitive (literally, if you are a male) topic. It is a natural topic. Scripture is not silent regarding it, and neither should we—within the bounds of propriety.
A caution: to protect moral propriety we have intentionally chosen not to provide clickable direct references to online sources documenting this topic, but have used footnotes, instead. We have only provided hyperlinks to non-sensitive basic information and scripture references, for quicker access. You, as a parent, will need to carefully decide whether or not to type in a website address to view referenced web pages. Most of the images displayed there are diagrams; any photographs are clinical, not pornographic. Nonetheless, discretion is advised; be sure to clear the link afterwards. If you are under 18, we recommend that you read, view and discuss this information in the presence of your parents. Trust us: this is for your good! If you don’t want to see those images, or if you are under 18 and don’t have your parents’ permission to see them, don’t follow those references. This text covers the topic sufficiently; you don’t need to see the pictures, detailed descriptions, and diagrams. If you are under age and don’t have your parents’ permission to read this, or if you live somewhere where it’s illegal for you to see these images or consider this information, do not order this title.
