  • "Jesus!" (Sermon for the Circumcision and Name of Jesus, on Luke 2:21)

    “Jesus!” (Luke 2:21) [In 2022 and now into 2023, we are celebrating the 175th anniversary year of our Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. Today, on this eighth day of Christmas, we are observing the Circumcision and Name of Jesus. And today is January 1, New Year’s Day. Our message this morning brings together all three of these themes. This past week I came across a sermon by Friedrich Wyneken, the second president of the Missouri Synod, on the Circumcision and Name of Jesus, preached on New Year’s Day, January 1, 1868. I read it and thought it was excellent. So I edited...

  • The Oldest Circumcision in the World {2400 BC, Egypt}

    09/24/2020 9:08:51 AM PDT · by Cronos · 52 replies ^ | 2016 | Zachary Solomon
    In Saqqara, in Ankhmahon’s tomb, Visir of the Pharaoh Teti Dynasty (c. 2345 BCE) there is a bas-relief with a representation of circumcision. Below is a papyrus illustrating the operation in vivid color. Have you ever wondered what the oldest illustration of a circumcision looked like? Of course you haven’t, but we’ll tell you anyway. A bas-relief—a type of sculptural technique in which the sculpted elements remain attached to their background—dating back to 2,400 BCE and depicting two men being circumcised was found in an Egyptian tomb built for Ankhmahor, a high-ranking official during the sixth dynasty of Egypt. The...
  • Sudan Criminalises Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)

    05/06/2020 10:14:37 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 15 replies
    Sudan has criminalised carrying out female genital mutilation (FGM), making it punishable by three years in jail. Some 87% of Sudanese women aged between 14 and 49 have undergone some form of FGM, according to the UN. SNIP BBC Sudan analyst Mohaned Hashim notes that there have been previous attempts to ban FGM across the whole country but parliament under long-time leader Omar al-Bashir rejected the recommendations.

    Tens of thousands of teen boys and men.. were herded into Israeli operating rooms beginning in the '90s to undergo circumcisions.

  • Beyond circumcision: Andrew Yang's seven wildest campaign proposals

    Andrew Yang, the 44-year-old tech entrepreneur from New York running for president, may have the most extensive and wildest platform in the Democratic field. 1. A domestic infrastructure force called the " Legion of Builders and Destroyers." Under his proposal to modernize military spending, Yang has a scheme to divert 10 percent of military funding toward an infrastructure task force he calls “The Legion of Builders and Destroyers.” The head of this task force would be called “The Commander,” and he would be given the power to overrule local zoning laws and city regulations to make sure the building and...

    See video at link. Andrew Yang has been censored by MSNBC. His mic was cut off during the debate so he could not respond. The other candidates' mics were NOT cut off. He only got two questions. Why? They (media punks) said Yang was the debate's "loser". They didn't even give him the chance to speak and tried to make him appear timid and stupid. Why don't the mainstream media want people to hear what Yang has to say?

    Washington Examiner ^ | March 19, 2019 | Diana Stancy Correll
    Democratic presidential hopeful Andrew Yang wants to cut circumcision in the U.S. so American parents don’t feel pressured to have the practice performed on their sons. “From what I’ve seen, the evidence on it being a positive health choice for the infant is quite shaky,” the 44-year-old serial entrepreneur told the Daily Beast. Yang, who tweeted last week that he was “against the practice” of circumcision, said if he were president he would work to “inform parents that it is entirely up to them whether their infant gets circumcised, and that there are costs and benefits either way.” “It’s sort...

    Once upon a time, a powerful Emperor of the Rising Sun advertised for a new Chief Samurai. After a year, only three applied for the job: a Japanese, a Chinese and a Jewish Samurai. “Demonstrate your skills!” commanded the Emperor. The Japanese samurai stepped forward, opened a tiny box and released a fly. He drew his samurai sword and *Swish!* the fly fell to the floor, neatly divided in two! “What a feat!” said the Emperor. “Number Two Samurai, show me what you do.” The Chinese samurai smiled confidently, stepped forward and opened a tiny box, releasing a fly. He...

    And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called Jesus, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb. And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord; (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;) And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of...
  • Who Is A Jew?...eschatology pt 14

    For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:But he is a Jew, 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 2:28-29Paul has been arguing in the first two chapters of Romans, that both Gentile and Jew are sinners, and liable to the wrath of God. Having a highly developed moral sense is not the same as being Righteous before God. Knowing the law, being taught of God, and...

    Denmark’s ruling Liberal Party has come out against a ban on the circumcision of young boys, meaning the controversial citizen’s proposal is unlikely to make it through parliament. “It has been difficult today, and if we had taken the easy route, we would have said ‘yes’ to a ban,” the party’s group chairman, Søren Gade, told the Berlingske newspaper after a long-drawn out meeting of party MPs to discuss the issue on Tuesday. Jakob Ellemann-Jensen, the party’s political spokesman, told the paper that views had been split across the party. “Many have veered both for and against. There are really...

    Lisa Powell-Dejong laughed when she looked at the list of hospital charges from giving birth to her daughter, Liberty Mae. That's because among the charges for more expected things like the NICU stay and blood tests, was $1,216.50 for a circumcision. Yeah, a circumcision ... for her newborn daughter. Liberty Mae is the most recent addition to the blended family of seven children. Colorado mom Powell-Dejong had a hospital birth once before but didn't check the medical bill with her first biological daughter, who was in the NICU for nine days. "But I sure wish I had," the mom told...

    300 Rabbis, including the Chief Rabbi of Israel, vowed at a conference of the Rabbinical Center of Europe (RCE) to “wake the EU from its dangerous slumber” by engaging in a concerted campaign of outreach and awareness raising at EU and Member State level, said RCE Director Rabbi Menachem Margolin Tuesday. […] The two-day conference dealt with issues affecting Jewish Law, heard many more voices than usual saying that a line needed to be drawn, and that the EU needed to do much, much more to defend religious freedom across Europe. Rabbi Margolin said in a statement: “Never before have...

    Icelandic lawmakers are considering a law that would ban the circumcision of boys for non-medical reasons, making it the first European country to do so. Some religious leaders in Iceland and across Europe have called the bill an attack on religious freedom. It is seen as a particular threat by Jews and Muslims who traditionally embrace the practice. Under the proposed law, the circumcision of boys — removing the foreskin of the penis, usually when the child is a newborn — would be viewed as equal to female genital mutilation and punishable by up to six years in prison. […]...

    As a Reformed Baptist and an American, I don't have a personal stake in this particular battle over religious liberty. However, since progressives in this country look up to Iceland, the small island country's push to ban male circumcision may have negative ramifications for overall religious freedom in this country, not to mention around the globe. According to Religion News Service, "The legislation being debated by Iceland’s Parliament would impose a six-year jail term on anyone who 'removes part or all of (a child’s) sexual organs' for nonmedical reasons." In other words, Iceland wants to throw people in prison for...

    The leaders of the Jewish communities of four Nordic countries said that a bill proposing to ban nonmedical circumcision in Iceland “will guarantee” that no Jewish community is established there. The presidents of the umbrella groups of Jewish communities in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland issued the unusual warning Tuesday in an open letter to all Icelandic lawmakers in reaction to the submission last month of a bill proposing to ban all nonmedical circumcision of boys younger than 18 in Iceland, a Scandinavian island nation of some 300,000 people with a few hundred Jews and Muslims. Lawmakers from four parties...

Mysteries abound on this day: let us not pass one of them over, but honor them with all possible devotion and love. But this Day is not exclusively devoted...

    “On the Eighth Day of Christmas: The Circumcision and Name of Jesus” (Luke 2:21) On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me . . . the circumcision and name of Jesus? Huh? What? Yeah, well, that’s what happened on this day. On the eighth day of Christmas, God’s true love gave to me--and to you, to us--the circumcision and name of Jesus. That’s what our text says, the Holy Gospel for this day, Luke 2:21, which reads again as follows, “And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was called Jesus, the...
