It is considered to be more sanitary. (less change of infections). But in todays times, if people are washing themselves properly, it would be there own fault. Back in the day, bathing wasn't a daily thing as it is now.
circumcision was said by God to occur on the 8th day after birth. On the eighth day, the amount of prothrombin present actually is elevated above one-hundred percent of normal—and is the only day in the male’s life in which this will be the case under normal conditions. If surgery is to be performed, day eight is the perfect day to do it. Vitamin K and prothrombin levels are at their peak. Both are effective in blood clotting and healing.
You see of course the wisdom of God. Circumcision was to identify Gods people as being different from other nations and as God said. Day 8 is the perfect time. Also the child would not remember the pain caused. Sanitation was, of course, also a factor.
This is why EGs nonreligion causes so much conflict because his mouth is always open and never saying anything at all. Ignorance.
More likely you were thinking of a different way. The OT imputation was according to flesh, everything was dealt with in a physical way. It was very works oriented in that there were lots of rituals and rules applied to it. Sacrifices and the shedding of blood was included numerous times for this and that. Recall the last trial of the Hebrews, in Egypt when they were told to apply blood to their doors posts and lintels (beside and above) so their firstborns would not be killed. Recall the sacrifices that shed blood. Recall now that shed blood occurred to the males in the situation of circumcision. In the OT shed blood identified the person with God the maker. In the NT, the shed blood of Christ covers all people to identify them with the maker and that is God. So the typology of this shedding of blood that you balk at is a continuing truism appointed of God to gather his own unto himself, in the OT, via the circumcision and the NT, via his Son, jesus. So earnest you were actually not far off in your deduction. congratulations. And logic, better luck next time you try and apply your commonsense.
Um... I disagree. The baby is in pain and sore afterwards. Have you ever seen a baby after they have the procedure done? There is a bandage and SKIN is removed which must heal over. There is pain done, just not pain remembered.
I feel guilty now. I had no idea this procedure would lessen sensitivity. Had I known, I would never have had my son circumcised. I'm surprised doctors haven't spoken out against the practice over the years.
would you believe anything said? It is absolutely not right that it lessens sensitivity. It does NOT! On the contrary, if you want to know. You did a right thing for your son and he will be glad later. While it is a strictly personal choice for people out of Jewish nationality (by the way, nowadays it is a free choice for Jews too), circumcision is a right thing to do, as it means more hygienic for a man AND his woman. And don't listen to insinuations like "less sensitivity". Besides, it looks SO much better than uncircumcised.
I let my husband make the final decision on this with our sons, and as a circumcised (and pretty well educated on the subject) male, he opted to have it done. Religion has absolutely nothing to do with it, either (for us). It's easy to talk about what you would do until you are in the situation with your own family. My husband felt that the benefits were greater than the drawbacks and has no problem with sensitivity. If anything, it could be problematic if he were more sensitive!
Really, though, there are much more troublesome things happening to children to get upset about instead of a personal decision made by loving parents trying to do the best for their child. It is a tough decision, and I understand any parent going either way on it. Not my business to judge them for it.
as to animals, i suppose protection could be a factor since humans wear clothes. Since sensitivity resides there, perhaps to lessen the sensation when running through forest or dense jungle. I do not think this foreskin a design flaw.. it has a purpose according to God, in the OT. but it doesn't matter in the NT. Read my post above if you want to know the importance of this foreskin and the role it serves.
You'll agree then that the human foreskin is quite a convincing argument for evolution. If it is only useful for running naked through the jungle, that suggests that for a few (million) years that was exactly what we did. On the other hand, for God to create Adam intact, in the knowledge that within a few weeks he'd eat an apple and immediately feel the urge to dress, we can only assume Adam's foreskin was to protect his sensitivity until the fall I think you're floundering, somewhat!
only if one compares human and animal as one in the same. God created man for a different reason than animals. I believe this is like comparing an apple and orange. The fact that the foreskin has both ceremonial and typology use by God indicates nothing of evolution, but that God has purpose in many details as even he does the many details of our lives. Your way of thinking... against ward all the time is too one sided. You need to see the other side because in order for your idea to hold ground, there would have to be no foreskins on anything else and that would prove God, but you see because everything else has foreskins, its evolution. And to say that for millions of years man ran through a jungle and this is why he had a foreskin is to me ludicrous because now you say that evolution had keen insight and thought to itself 'man is gonna need something to protect that, so i better make a foreskin'. Evolution has no intelligent foresight - but God does.
yep. I supposed they were for protection, i also supposed more... maybe you should read over again what i wrote in all my posts since you seem to have this selective reading ability common to all your kind.
