Through the Spirit by faith we confidently await the fulfillment of our righteous hope, for in union with the Messiah Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision matters.

A little yeast spreads through the whole batch of dough. I am confident in the Lord that you will take no other view of this.

In that case the offense of the cross has been removed. I wish that those who are upsetting you would castrate themselves!
