Colossians 2:10-11

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 10 And you are complete in him, who is the head of all principality and power;

 11 In whom you are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision performed by Christ.2 [Christ is the anointing, which teaches you all things and which circumcises your heart, cutting off the foreskin of sin and selfishness to become an inward Jew, inwardly circumcised.]

Romans 2:28-29,6:5-6

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 28 For he is not a Jew, who is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh;

 29 But he is a Jew, who is one inwardly; and the circumcision is that of the heart, by the Spirit,5 and not by the letter; whose praise is not from men, but from God. [The Spirit circumcises your heart, cutting away the sins as you wait on God to receive his grace that both charges sin and then removes sin, purifying a peculiar people zealous for good works. Reading about sin in the Bible does not remove the desire for sin from your heart; only the Spirit does that.]

 5 For if we have become united with him in the likeness of his death, we will certainly also be united in the likeness of his resurrection. [The Romans had died on the inward cross of self-denial, to be free of sin; and they are resurrected, (raised), with Christ to become an entirely new creature.]

 6 Knowing this, that our old man has been crucified with him, that our body of sin might be destroyed, so that we would not serve sin any longer. [Christendom, with no knowledge of how to carry a cross, presumes that they have been crucified with Christ by imputation, which is make-believe Christianity. You must mortify your sinful nature on the inward cross of self denial so that you are freed of sin.]
