Galatians 5:2 Twisted By Muslims
SOME Muslims continue to TWIST and DISTORT Galatians 5:2 in their effort to MISLEAD the INNOCENT as well as the IGNORANT.
A MUSLIM who calls himself Bom Bastic posted Galatians 5:2 in Answering Muslims and ISOLATED IT from its context.
To Bom Bastic, THAT ISSUE has LONG BEEN RESOLVED and EXPLAINED.
YOU are RAISING a WORN OUT ISSUE.
PAUL was REFERRING to CIRCUMCISION as OBEDIENCE to JEWISH LAWS.
GALATIANS 5:2 says, "Listen! I, Paul, am telling you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no benefit to you.
READ YOUR POST. IT SAYS, "Paul abolished circumcision which is included in the LAW (TORAH)."
That fact is shown by Paul in the following verse in Galatians 5:3, where he says: "Once again I testify to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obliged to obey the ENTIRE LAW."
TRADITIONAL CIRCUMCISION, like what FILIPINOS DO, is NOT ACCORDING to JEWISH LAWS, but BASED on FOLK TRADITION which WELCOMES YOUNG MEN to MANHOOD.
MUSLIMS are just DISPLAYING a LACK of KNOWLEDGE with their USE of GALATIANS 5:2.
That GIVES CREDENCE to the DECLARATION of PETER that MANY who DO NOT UNDERSTAND the WRITINGS of PAUL are IGNORANT.
So also our beloved brother Paul wrote to you according to the wisdom given him, speaking of this as he does in all his letters.
There are some things in them hard to understand, which the IGNORANT and UNSTABLE TWIST to their own destruction, as they do the other scriptures.
