  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    Circumcision covenant

    Col 2:
    11 In whom also ""ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands"", in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh ""by the circumcision of Christ"":
    (NOTE: ""the circumcision made without hands"" & """by the circumcision of Christ"" Only Christ can preform spiritual baptism.)

    12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
    (NOTE: The baptism here "done without hands & by Christ is clearly one of spiritual/Holy Spirit baptism)

    Both old & new circumcision are an entrance into a covenant with God. Old covenant circumcision Gen 17 was preformed physically in the flesh with hands. New covenant circumcision is preformed without hands via Christ's indwelling Holy Spirit. (Matt 3:11, Mk 1:8 & Lk 3:16.)
