The Circumcision of the Flesh is Abolished - for an Evil Angel Taught them Cleverness

They Full Well Reject the Commandment of God, that they may Keep their Own Tradition

Romans 3:1, Gospel
What advantage then does the Jew have?  Or what profit [is there] of circumcision?

Romans 2:28 - 29, Gospel
For he is not a Jew, who is one outwardly; neither [is that] circumcision, which is outward in the flesh.  But he [is] a Jew, who is one inwardly; and circumcision [is that] of the heart, in the spirit, [and] not in the letter; whose praise [is] not of men, but of God.

Acts 21:21, Gospel
[So] they are informed of you, that you teach all the Jews who are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, saying that they should not circumcise [their] children, neither walk after the customs.

37:69 - 70, Qur'an
[But] indeed, they found their fathers astray.  [And] so they hastened [to follow] in their footsteps.

7:28, Qur'an
And when they commit an immorality, they say, "We found our fathers doing it, and God has ordered us to do it."  Say, "Indeed, God does not order immorality.  Do you say about God that which you do not know?"

[2 Ezra 1:31], Torah
[For God said,] "When you offer to Me, I will turn My face from you; for I have forsaken your circumcisions, your solemn feast days, and your new moons.

Mark 7:7 - 9, Gospel
[For] in vain do they worship Me, teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men."  [Jesus continued,] "[So] laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men, [as] the washing of pots and cups, and many other such things you do."  And he said to them, "You full well reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your own tradition."

5:13, Qur'an
So for their breaking of the covenant We cursed them and made their hearts hard.  They distort words from their [proper] usages and have forgotten a portion of that of which they were reminded.  And you will still observe deceit among them, except a few of them.  But pardon them and overlook [their misdeeds].  Indeed, God loves the doers of good.

[Barnabas 10:12], Gospel
But from where should they perceive or understand these things?  Howbeit, we, having justly perceived the commandments, tell them as the Lord willed.  To this end, He circumcised our ears and hearts, that we might understand these things.

[Barnabas 9:3], Gospel
Moreover, the circumcision, in which they have confidence, is abolished; for He has said that a circumcision, not of the flesh, should be practiced.  But they transgressed, for an evil angel taught them cleverness.

22:52 - 54, Qur'an
[For] We did not send before you any messenger or prophet except that when he spoke [or recited], Satan threw into it [some misunderstanding].  But God abolishes that which Satan throws in; then God makes precise His verses.  And God is Knowing and Wise.  [That is] so He may make what Satan throws in a trial for those within whose hearts is disease and those hard of heart.  And indeed, the wrongdoers are in extreme dissension.  And so those who were given knowledge may know that it is the truth from your Lord and [therefore] believe in it, and their hearts humbly submit to it.  And indeed is God the Guide of those who have believed to a straight path.

6:125 - 126, Qur'an
[So] whoever God wants to guide - He expands his breast to [contain] submission [to God]; and whoever He wants to misguide - He makes his breast tight and constricted as though he were climbing into the heaven.  Thus does God place defilement upon those who do not believe.  And this is the path of your Lord, [leading] straight.  We have detailed the verses for a people who remember,

Psalms 78:7 - 8, Torah
[And so] that they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments, and might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation [that] did not set their heart aright, and whose spirit was not steadfast with God.

39:22, Qur'an
So is one whose breast God has expanded to [accept] submission [to God] and he is upon a light from his Lord [like one whose heart rejects it]?  Then woe to those whose hearts are hardened against the remembrance of God.  Those are in manifest error.


Take Away the Foreskins of your Heart, for your Hearts are Hardened Against God

God will Circumcise your Heart and the Heart of your Seed to Love God with All your Heart

Acts 7:51, Gospel
[O] you stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, you do always resist the Holy Spirit, as your fathers [did], so [do] you.

Jeremiah 7:24, Torah
"[For] they did not listen, nor incline their ear, but they walked in the counsels [and] in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.

Jeremiah 6:10, Torah
[So] to whom will I speak, and give warning, that they may hear?  Behold, their ear [is] uncircumcised, and they cannot listen, behold, the word of the Lord is a reproach to them; they have no delight in it.

Jeremiah 7:26, Torah
[For] they did not listen to Me, nor incline their ear, but they hardened their neck, they did worse than their fathers.

Jeremiah 9:25 - 10:3, Torah
[So] behold, the days come," the Lord says, "That I will punish all [those who are] circumcised only as to the foreskin; Egypt, and Judah, and Edom, and the children of Ammon, and Moab, and all [who are] in the utmost corners, who dwell in the wilderness, for all [these] nations [are] uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel [are] uncircumcised in the heart.  Hear the word which the Lord speaks to you, O house of Israel."  Thus the Lord says, "Do not learn the way of the heathen, and do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.  For the customs of the people [are] vain, for [one] cuts a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman with the axe."

Jeremiah 4:4 - 6, Torah
[Thus the Lord said to the men of Judah and Jerusalem,] "Circumcise yourselves to the Lord, and take away the foreskins of your heart, you men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem, unless My fury comes forth like fire, and burns that none can quench [it], because of the evil of your doings.  Declare in Judah, and publish in Jerusalem; and say, 'Blow the trumpet in the land, cry, gather together,' and say, 'Assemble yourselves, and let us go into the defensed cities.'  Set up the standard toward Zion, retire, do not stay, for I will bring evil from the north, and a great destruction.

Jeremiah 25:9, Torah
[For] behold, I will send and take all the families of the north," the Lord says, "And Nebuchadrezzar, the king of Babylon, My servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and a hissing, and perpetual desolations."

6:43, Qur'an
Then why, when Our punishment came to them, did they not humble themselves?  But their hearts became hardened, and Satan made attractive to them that which they were doing.

4:155, Qur'an
[Thus We cursed the People of Scripture] for their breaking of the covenant and their disbelief in the signs of God and their killing of the prophets without right and their saying, "Our hearts are uncircumcised".  Rather, God has sealed them because of their disbelief, so they believe not, except for a few.

Deuteronomy 10:16 - 17, Torah
Therefore, circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and be no longer stiff-necked.  For the Lord your God [is] God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, mighty and terrible, who does not regard persons, nor take reward.

Deuteronomy 30:6, Torah
And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart, and the heart of your seed, to love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, that you may live.

8:24, Qur'an
[So,] O you who have believed, respond to God and to the messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life.  And know that God intervenes between a man and his heart and that to Him you will be gathered.
