Profitable Circumcision

Paul is not setting aside the law, Paul is talking to believers, and he is saying “Circumcision and for that matter baptism will not save you; if you are a covenant man you walk in faithfulness to the word of God, the law word. You obey Gods commandments. But if you have a covenant status, if you are both circumcised and baptized,” (As many were as a kind of double insurance) “and you do not keep the law, it becomes un-circumcision, un-baptism for you; and you are then outside the covenant.”

About the author

R. J. Rushdoony

Rev. R.J. Rushdoony (1916–2001), was a leading theologian, church/state expert, and author of numerous works on the application of Biblical law to society. He started the Chalcedon Foundation in 1965. His Institutes of Biblical Law (1973) began the contemporary theonomy movement which posits the validity of Biblical law as God’s standard of obedience for all. He therefore saw God’s law as the basis of the modern Christian response to the cultural decline, one he attributed to the church’s false view of God’s law being opposed to His grace. This broad Christian response he described as “Christian Reconstruction.” He is credited with igniting the modern Christian school and homeschooling movements in the mid to late 20th century. He also traveled extensively lecturing and serving as an expert witness in numerous court cases regarding religious liberty. Many ministry and educational efforts that continue today, took their philosophical and Biblical roots from his lectures and books.
