==================================================

The laws of circumcision ONLY apply to gentiles in two situations (1) if they are slaves owned by the Israelites (2) If they are going to keep the Passover ceremony.

LAWS OF CIRCUMCISION
DIFFERENT FOR ISRAELITES AND GENTILES

Gen 17:9 And God said to Abraham, You shalt keep my covenant therefore, you, and thy seed after you in their generations.
Gen 17:10 This is my covenant, which you shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after you; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.
Gen 17:11 And you shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin;
Gen 17:12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.
Gen 17:13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.
Gen 17:14 And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.
HIS PEOPLE is a reference to the Israelites. It does not mean an uncircumcised Moabite will be cut off from his people or that an uncircumcised Egyptian will be cut off from his people... the Egyptians.
The references to your people or his people when talking TO everyone from Abraham to the end of the Tanakah, your / his "people" is a reference to the Israelites.
The Israelites were not the people of the Egyptians, Hittites, Syrians .. who lived among them. They were not the ancestors to these Arabs (but the Arabs were the ancestors of the Israelites)
Gen 17:14 And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people;
The man child in this context is a reference to a descendant of Jacob... His people are the Israelites.

UNDERSTANDING SPECIFICATIONS

If a man were told to buy all of the red Chevys from a used car dealer, there are two qualifications red and Chevy.
The instructions are not to buy all the used cars, the specifications limit which cars are included. A red Ford is excluded, a blue Chevy is Excluded.


Gen 17:12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.
It is NOT written that strangers (non-Israelites) are to be circumcised, it is written that a SPECIFIED TYPE OF STRANGER, is to be circumcised... he that is bought with money of any stranger.
( I will show you the slave stipulation in another law of Judaism later)

ACTS 7:8 And he (God) gave him the covenant of circumcision: and so Abraham fathered Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day; and Isaac fathered Jacob; and Jacob fathered the twelve patriarchs.
ACTS 10:45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.
ACTS 11:2 And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended with him,

ACTS 15:1 And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except you be circumcised after the manner of Moses, you cannot be saved.
ACTS 15:5 But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees which believed, saying, That it was needful to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses.
ACTS 15:6 And the apostles and elders came together for to consider of this matter.
ACTS 15:7 And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said to them, Men and brethren, you know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe...
ACTS 15:24 Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment:
ACTS 15:27 We have sent therefore Judas and Silas, who shall also tell you the same things by mouth.
ACTS 15:28 For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things;
ACTS 15:29 That you abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if you keep yourselves, you shall do well. Fare you well.

Timotheus, the son of a certain woman, which was a Jewess
ACTS 16:3 Him would Paul have to go forth with him; and took and circumcised him because of the Jews [S#2453] which were in those quarters: for they knew all that his father was a Greek.
Of course he was an Israelite, a descendant of the man Israel.

ROMANS 2:25 For circumcision verily profiteth, if you keep the law: but if you be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision.
ROMANS 2:26 Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision?
ROMANS 2:28 For he is not a Jew [S#2453] , which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
ROMANS 2:29 But he is a Jew [S#2453] , which 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.
ROMANS 3:1 What advantage then hath the Jew [S#2453] ? or what profit is there of circumcision?

1_CORINTHIANS 7:18 Is any man called being circumcised? let him not become uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? let him not be circumcised.
1_CORINTHIANS 7:19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.

GALATIANS 5:3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
GALATIANS 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision avail any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
GALATIANS 6:13 For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.
I am sure there have been great numbers of gentiles circumcised to please others, but the ONLY gentiles God commanded to be circumcised were those who were bought by Israelites.
Unless you or your children are the slaves of some Israelite, then the laws of circumcision are not given to you.
The actual Israelites never kept the laws nor do these false counterfeit Jews of Europe keep the laws of Judaism.
GALATIANS 6:13 For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.
It makes you wonder if these "rabbis" get some kind of sick pleasure by cutting off the foreskin of baby boys.

GENTILES SEPARATED FROM ISRAELITES ON PASSOVER

Here we have instructions to the NON-Israelites.

The text I used here is from the "Jew" Tanakah, not the lowly Christian Old Testament.

PASSOVER LAWS TO GENTILES

EXODUS 12:48 And when a stranger shall sojourn with you, and will keep the Passover to the Lord, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one who is born in the land; for no uncircumcised person shall eat of it.

a) Note in the laws of
circumcision given to Abraham, only gentiles who are bought (slaves) are required to be circumcised.
We know the gentiles, were not all circumcised, because they are required
to be circumcised IF they are going to keep the Passover.
b) He shall come near it... what is
IT, the Passover sacrifice. IT is NOT a reference to Israelites.
c)
Non Israelites could take part in the Passover after they were circumcised.

The two stipulations of gentiles to be circumcised was (a) if they were slaves purchased or (b) if they wanted to take part in the Passover.

There are different laws of the Passover for Israelites and gentiles.
The gentiles could take part in the Passover, BUT did they take part of the Passover in the dwellings of the Israelites?

PASSOVER LAWS TO ISRAELITES

EXODUS 12:43 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, This is the ordinance of the Passover; No stranger shall eat of it.
Wait a minute, it says
in Exodus 12:48 that gentiles can eat of the Passover but in this verse it says they can not?
EXODUS 12:44 But
every man's servant who is bought for money, when you have circumcised him, then shall he eat of it.
The ONLY gentiles who could eat the Passover with the Israelites were slaves they owned

EXODUS 12:45 A foreigner and a hired servant shall not eat of it.
Exodus 12:45 a foreigner or hired servant can not eat of the Passover.
Exodus 12:48
a stranger who travels with you, and will keep the Passover to the Lord, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it.
Of course the strangers who traveled with the Israelites were not literally strangers. They lived side by side for 40 years. Stranger means non Israelite.
Exodus 12:48
stranger.. Strong's Ref. # 1616, Romanized ger, Pronounced gare or (fully) geyr (gare); from HSN1481; properly, a guest; by implication, a foreigner: --alien, sojourner, stranger.
Exodus 12:45 .. A foreigner, this is the VERY same Hebrew word Stranger / Foreigner used in Exodus 12:48.

Thus
Gentiles who circumcised their males could eat the Passover, but they could not eat it with the Israelites.
Israelites could allow gentiles to eat the Passover with them but ONLY if they were
slaves owned by them.
Gentiles who lived among the Israelites, gentiles who traveled in their midst, gentiles that they hired could NOT eat the Passover with the Israelites.

A DIVISION IN GOD'S LAWS
BETWEEN ISRAELITES AND GENTILES
!

Oh yeah, tell me how many people actually keep the required instructions of the Passover today? Pick out a lamb with out blemish, keep it 4 days, the whole household then takes part in the slaughter of the lamb, they stay home for a 12 hour period (dusk to sun rise), they paint the door post with the lamb's blood ... see the page on the Passover laws if you think anyone actually keeps the Passover of the Israelites.

The only gentiles to be circumcised are those owned by the Israelites and those who keep the laws of the Passover. If you are not the property of some Israelite and you do not keep the laws of the Passover, no such law applies to you.
