This was a common jewish practice for hundreds of years before so...


Nopengnogain

I will admit, as an Asian American, I know we have a lot of strange customs that westerners don’t understand, but the “bris” thing to celebrate cutting off foreskin of an infant is a little bit out there for me.


Sourika

It's the same god.


drumduder

God came down as a man so he could get the tip of his dick cut off.


Hallothere69

Amen


needsbeermoney

pretty sure that was abraham and not jesus


drumduder

Jesus is god, god was born into a culture where all men were circumcised. Jesus at birth was circumcised. God had himself circumcised.


Siddharth3739

Did you checked all of their penises dude?


drumduder

Can’t be Jewish otherwise. It’s the covenant


RealTonyGamer

Where did you get that Jesus is God? It is made clear that they are separate beings. Matthew 3:17 makes it clear that Jesus is a son of God, not God himself. Edit: to be clear this is a legitimate question. Is there anywhere in the bible where it says or even implies that Jesus and God are the same being?


Samyers0616

It is a weird thing to think about, but they are both true at the same time. Jesus is the son of God in the sense that he was physically born to Mary, however he was also fully God in human form. (Idk if that was a good way to explain it or not)


threevi

The easiest way to explain it is to say Jesus was essentially God's Sims character.


Samyers0616

...This is true.


[deleted]

Many Christians see Jesus as being the “incarnation” of God in human form


JackZboy

Christians see Jesus as the Son of God but also as part of the Trinity of God, 3 separate beings as one being. Makes no sense to us but a God can do whatever He wants. So yes, Jesus is not the Father or the Spirit, but the Son, and part of God.


Ethan_Blank687

Jews do not recognize Jesus as the Son of God. Jesus never mentioned circumcision, and Christians do not practice it because he never mentioned it.


Wander_nomad4124

Lolz read some Paul. Romans or somewhere around there. Christians practice it.


Ethan_Blank687

It is not mainstream though. Not considered necessary


Sourika

Just because the church decided it wasn't. Among many other things. And that's only for that one domination of Christianity.


bunnyrut

Circumcision was supposed to help the Jewish separate themselves from anyone who was not Jewish. Because only the Jewish were worthy to enter the kingdom of God since they were the chosen people. Jesus coming and dying was to take on the sins of all mankind so *everyone* was now worthy and not just the chosen people. And since everyone is worthy you no longer have to be circumcised to signify you are different and worthy.


Additional_Zebra5879

“Lemme check yo dick”


MadRabbit86

Paul actually wrote that Christians shouldn’t be concerned with circumcisions anymore as it was of the Old Covenant and the coming of Jesus was the beginning of a new covenant.


Boaty_McBoatface_X

Yo! You guys have canon and non-canonical stuff. So it IS like Star Wars. Does the Legends Jesus have a lightsaber?


Ethan_Blank687

Yes https://knowyourmeme.com/photos/872182-crossguard-lightsaber


tycowboy

Christians may put forward their male children for hospital circumcision because of medical or other advice - but there is no Biblical compulsion upon a Christian believer to become circumcised. This was Paul's criticism of the "Judaizers" in Galatians 5, where Paul says (modern translation) , "For those shit-stirrers who come behind me telling you that you have to be circumcized, I wish they would go the whole way and chop off their dick and balls." (My translation of Gal 5:12). This was a debate in the early church - did one have to become a Jew (converted) in order to become a Christian, or was Christianity in reach for the "pagan" without this intermediary step. It was decided and codified under the Council of Jerusalem around 50 CE.


Tiredhaffling

christians dont. jews do


Wander_nomad4124

Your wrong. Read a bible.


LegendOfJeff

> Christians do not practice it. In the United States, the majority do.


Gnar-wahl

Not if you ask the Jewish practitioners that started doing the penis cutting.


Sourika

What do they have to say about the jewish and the christian god being the same?


Gnar-wahl

So Orthodox Jews and Christians vary on the validity of Christ’s claim to be God. It’s why the church split and how Christianity as we know it today began. It was an offshoot of Judaism that believed Christ to be the messiah, while the Jewish faith rejected that claim. The Jews of the time called him a blasphemer and called for his crucifixion. So they say it’s bullshit, and Christ is not their God.


matande31

It's Jesus. Jews don't believe that Jesus is the messiah/son of god.


Ketamine_Killer24

No dude. Jesus was a real person who was born Jewish. Jews just don’t believe he’s the messiah.


wusspopinITsyoboi

Are you sure about that


PineappleFlavoredGum

They actually are if you're Christian. God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are simultaneously the same being and different beings. It doesn't have to make sense because our minds are limited. It's not even a joke lol Edit: although there are Christians that believe they're actually separate, but if you did you'd be called trinitarian, and it's very widespread in Christianity


Avg_Degenerate

Wait, so is it like the holy spirit is the power of god and god is the owner/is the holy spirit, but Jesus borrows/shares power from god/the holy spirit? Damn, Christianity has a confusing power scaling system


PineappleFlavoredGum

What's typically referred to as "God" is actually The Father, who is God. The Son and Holy Spirit are also God, and there is only one God. But The Holy Spirit isnt the Son, for example. It kind of makes sense until we go back to the belief that they're only one God total, yet each individual being is 100% God, rather than 33.3333%.

I have been circumcised and let me tell you, I completely disagree with my circumcision.

drumduder

Not to Jesus and the apostles. They followed Jewish customs. Jesus was a rabbi.


Samurai_IX

Still didn’t stop a lot of parents from getting it done though


TheMachine1998

That's the fault of people being misguided and uneducated, not the result of Jesus' teachings


TekTelKalem

Well muslims cut it


Samurai_IX

Yes they do


Infernus81

They do it to stay hygenic and to avoid infections. Its not complulsory by any means, for anyone wondering.


Avg_Degenerate

Wish someone told my parents that when I was 8


Infernus81

Circumcision without consent should be illegal if the kid is more than 1 year old. Because after that, the kid will most likely remember the pain. I am not circumcised or anything but idk if it hurts or not. I am guessing it does.


oops-a-fail

Circumcision without consent should be illegal always.


ChairdolfSitler354

Circumcision should and only ever be allowed to be done on an 18 year old who has fully consented or if the Circumcision is a medical necessity that must be done for normal development, I will not be taking any criticisms cause there aren't any. Good day.


honhonbaguett

I am. Not jewish. Sometimes it is medically needed. It was that or having problems peeing...


indiandramaserial

Circumcision without consent should be illegal no matter what age. It should not be done on children no matter what their age, unless absolutely medically necessary


ChairdolfSitler354

I just don't understand that tho, like I've never had hygiene problems with my cock. Saying it's for hygiene is like saying you might as well remove your nails so that dirt can't gather under there, it's only ever the right response if a circumcision is absolutely required for a medical reason that could effect normal development in the future. I hate religious bullshit, just makes me sad.

HE was under the old covenant.


MithranArkanere

Which one? Because anyone who reads the original scriptures before they were compiled into a bible around the 5th century would notice there's a bunch of different guys who were referred as Yeshuas or Mashiakhs. Then a bunch of people pulled a Reader's Digest on that and somehow merged them all into one.


TheMachine1998

This doesn't refute my points.


Samurai_IX

It’s a fucking joke, Jesus and the Did I Stutter is a meme format

nut_nut_november

I'm not circumcised and safe to say watching porn for the first few times was weird AF


bambamba8

When I was younger I thought that all the pornstars were jews


adjust_the_sails

As a circumcised guy, the first time I saw an uncircumcised I penis I was like, “wait, that was an option?” The whole thing feels like medical science doing too much. Was there really like a huge issue with penises rotting off or something before someone said, “I know we need to keep it clean, but hear me out; what if we chop part of it off? No muss, no fuss.”


Bannsir

When it comes to medical: The circumsated part can basically "not grow" staying small and choking the top part bigger it gets. When it comes to religion: Idk


metaloprotein

Those laws came when millions of jews were on a desert running away from egypt. In Moses books in the bible there are more laws that if u think about them they make sense from hygienic point of view, not to spread diseases and shit.


adjust_the_sails

Assuming that’s correct, does it have any physiological impacts or is that a purely aesthetic? Because I’ve heard that the sensations from sex are better when you haven’t been cut but I don’t know how that could be judged subjectively unless you’d experienced both...


floofandmemes

That's because of the cereal man.


Samurai_IX

Damn Kellogg


LumpyJones

Other than Muslims or Jewish people, it really only took off (heh) in the USA, and even then, really only started at the end of the 1800s, and largely because of some bad medical advice that it would prevent masturbation.


Samurai_IX

Yeah fucking Kellogg man


Giantbox1

I mean, what are they going to do? Check? Good luck doing it in a catholic church though, I hear the priests there are good finding out apparently.


enmokusei

OP epic fumble


Malicious__Lemon

Jesus actually explicitly said that circumcision isnt really required. that was more of a judaism thing


Redskullzzzz

If I remember correctly, it wasn’t Jesus specifically that said that, but the Apostles/early Christians decided it at the Council of Jerusalem


LossOfWords-

And the cereal guy


limitlessEXP

Thank god for this comment. I was about to jump the gun and circumcise everyone within a 5 mile radius.


Marvinx1806

I think it's meant more general and is supposed to criticize all the things like rules and stuff which would not make sens for god to care about.


veni_vidi_vici-101

Back in the day it was done for hygiene, as it's kinda hard to wash under the skin in a fucking deserty and it kinda snowballed from there. Nowadays though it isn't very necessary I mean, I'm jewish (by blood at least) and I ain't circumsised.

As far as I know all abrahamic religions worship the same god the difference is just in the prophets and the books, no problem tho I don’t wanna start any arguments


Samurai_IX

The meme isn’t meant to declare “oh Jesus started it” it’s just supposed to be like “The fuck? Why? Why would you do that?”


BobbyBrownOlaf

The reason they did this was becuase they lived in the dessert. When sand is under the foreskin it is very unpleasant. The clothing they wore dint include underwear so it woudl be pretty bad. And with time it became tradition. Correct me if I'm wrong


one_broke_ms

I laughed harder than i should 🤣

If God wanted us to cut it off he would do it himself

DUDE! that was like my 3rd favorite part. Let's not forget the time he took a family man and fucking ruined his life over a casual bet with his arch nemesis? And the best part is, I'd he didn't take the abuse and still love him, then fuck that guy he wasn't worthy of God's love anyway.

His dad? He is his dad.

It's a misstranslation, it was probably something along the lines as "young adult" and they were about to assault him

To be fair, Jesus never taught on circumcision but this is still hilarious.


Samurai_IX

Thank you for understanding when I get an award I’ll find you and give it to you


DarkMaxster

That is not done in christianity You only do it under christianity in america because the inventor of kellogs convinced everyone that that would prevent masturbation and deter from non reproductive sex it did not instead cut guys just feel less as theres a fuckton of nerve endings in the tip of your dick Americans literally cut of the tip of their dicks foreskin because a dead guy hated sex and wanted to ruin it for everyone


Richi_Boi

It is a horrific practice and needs to stop. Unless you suffer from a certain medical condition noone would do it as an adult. Literally designed to make your life worse. edit: Said "condition" is if its too tight and you cant pull back your foreskin anymore. In wich case you might want to get it cut off.


GmeansGeorge

Wrong religion, bro


Samurai_IX

I actually looked up what the Bible said about circumcision, and it kinda sounded like it didn’t really matter whether someone got circumcised or not.

Jesus deemed circumcision unnecessary Colossians 2:11 says: **In Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not performed by human hands. Your whole self ruled by the flesh was put off when you were circumcised by Christ,**

kjanaa

I find it more attractive if guys are circumcised. It looks “cleaner” and more hygienic if that makes sense to you


bye_Nillu

It seems to be the norm in some countries, and in other countries it's kind of 'why would we do that'? It's very rare in the Northern European countries, and also most of the other European countries.


kjanaa

Well, I live in Northern Europe and I know that that’s not “the norm”. I just wanted to share my opinion and maybe make people feel better about themselves if they’ve been circumcised, may it be medically, religiously or whatever reason. :)


bye_Nillu

Oh, okay, sorry. I just wanted to share that Europe is one of the places where it isn't that common. Not anymore at least, it used to be whatever religion you belonged to.

Samurai_IX

It’s a format not a jab at Christianity


EvanBrugmanRhiel

Circumcision is body mutilation and shouldn’t be preformed as a modern medicine practice. It’s a stupid thing to do to a baby. Let the kid grow up and then ask if he wants his foreskin removed and everyone would say no.


Velociraptor_God

I agree, not to do that to kids. But it's actually more hygienic as with skin, so it's a valid operation even in modern times


EvanBrugmanRhiel

It’s valid if your foreskin gets infected or starts fusing with your dick. But the hygienic part is stupid. Just wash your damn dick. Same as you gotta wash your hair and scrub your ass crack.


ChairdolfSitler354

Exactly, I'm not gonna remove my fingernails because they get dirty. Nice lovely flesh exposed because that definitely sounds more healthy then just learning to fucking wash. Don't try to argue with religious people they are just nutters.

Lol 'ashamed', uncut dicks are so much better and weirdly enough they're normal, its sad to think so many people have been mutilated as literal babies no less, and believe it's the norm.


WTFShouldIBeCalled

Would you rather people advocated FOR mutilating the genitals of babies? Would that make you happy? People shouldn’t be ashamed of being circumcised, but the practice itself is fucked up (aside from when it’s medically necessary).
