    It is no less legalism than those that say they water baptise as an outward sign. Which is Biblically false.
    Jesus saves completely.

    Titus 1

    For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped

    Ephesians 5

    11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret

      To snip or not.....


      I'd advocate for parents making an informed decision on the matter, to research the pros and cons no matter one's religious belief. Be intelligent, considering short and long term effects.

      We cover this "in depth" in our older thread on the subject -

      Circumcision is a pagan rite

        That that is natural in God's eyes should not be tampered with without good reason.
        If Female Genital Mutilation is wrong, they why should circumcision be okay.
        And many American doctors hate doing this, but they do because their contracts say they have to.
        It's what's in your heart that matter, not symbols and rituals that are meant to coercively bind.
        The Mormons (whom I respect), won't even baptise a child, until it can think independently.
        So is baptism of a baby for the baby, or is it statement of intention by the adults involved
        to parent in Christ.
        This is good for the family, but for the child, is it not his or her confirmation that really matters,
        or his or her freely chosen baptism later in life.
