Does a Biblical View of the Body Allow for Circumcision? (Little Images)

Should Christian Parents Circumcise Their Infant Sons? (Domestic Geek Girl)
"First off, before embarking on any kind of faith based discussion of circumcision, it is important to clarify that the circumcision that Abraham and his descendants practiced was something entirely different from modern circumcision. Biblical circumcision merely involved cutting the tip of the foreskin, not completely removing it! Simply put, God never ordained that the foreskin or any other part of the human body should be amputated (i.e. his creation destroyed)."

Christians and Infant Circumcision: Where Should I Stand? (Miranda Mamma)
"If you are a Christian reading this, searching for answers or simply learning, I urge you to please pray before you read this blog post. Surrender yourself, say a word of worship and acknowledge Him. Ask for the Spirit's guidance, for Him to fill your heart and the room you're sitting in, to lead your mind and boldly request God's presence. Jesus wants to be with you, he wants to answer prayer, He wants you to understand His Word, all you have to do is ask."
The AAP is Not God (Little Images)
"The AAP asks you to follow the status quo and keep the millions of dollars rolling in for their members; the Creator of the universe asks that if you have given your life to Christ, that he be the Lord of all of it, down to the decisions we make for our children at the doctor’s office."
5 Myths: Why Male Circumcision Started in the US (Little Images)

To Circumcise or Not to Circumcise? (Catholic Health Association of the United States)

A Common Sense Approach to Routine Infant Circumcision from the Christian Point of View (STAHTS)
"In the beginning, God created man in His image. God created man complete with a foreskin. And what did God say? God said, “IT IS VERY GOOD.” It is very good! Why is it so hard for us to understand that GOD created man in HIS image, and said, “It is very good!?” God created man WITH a foreskin and somehow we are forgetting that GOD said, 'It is very good!'"
