    I'm French, and intact, but now I have become an American Citizen. I know the Jewish people do this fore religious reasons. We french don't go in for this sort of thing. I now belong to an American church and they told me Jesus was circumcised, and died for our sins, the least we could do is get circumcised or burn in hell forever.

    I'm not doing it for the church mind you, I'm just doing it for my very religious girlfriend. She's from Texas. I feel as if God and my girlfriend are looking down at it frowning.

    Thats why my girlfriend bought me the "Mini Mohel Guillotine" by Lop-It-Off® and some rubbing alcohol.
    It's a home circumcision kit approved by God's FDA and America. Has Anyone tried these?
    I don't want to burn in Hell, but i do want to have sex with by girlfriend.

    Any Suggestions?

    You know, I thought you'd already been circumcised and they threw away the wrong bit.

    BTW, if you are concerned about what God thinks, why don't you ask Him? I think He'd be alittle more concerned that your showing off your package to your girlfriend before you are married than he would be about a little foreskin. But I could be wrong on this matter. To be honest it's never concerned me enough for me to ask Him about it.

    I would say hell is more likely for fornication than foreskin though. Do you really want to know God? Study the scriptures and talk with Him. He will make things very clear.

    Have you read the new testament. Circumcision is in the heart. If you are not physically cut then you will not go to hell. What kind of church does your girlfriend go to?

    Look up these bible verses

    Since we are no longer under the Old Testament Law as Christians, circumcision is no longer required. This is brought out in a number of New Testament passages, among which are the following: Acts 15; Galatians 2:1-3; 5:1-11; 6:11-16; 1 Corinthians 7:17-20; Colossians 2:8-12; Philippians 3:1-3. As these passages proclaim, being saved from our sins is received through faith in Christ to save us from our sins, and it is this act of turning from our sin and self-righteousness and turning instead to reliance upon Christ’s finished work on the cross that makes us “circumcised of heart” and that the works of the flesh accomplish nothing.

    Yeah, find a new girlfriend. Doing that just to get laid is ridiculous. Also, as far a "burning in hell" goes, Christians aren't bound by Mosaic Law.

    I could not have said it better.. Paul had one heck of a fight with jewish christians at that time.. because they wanted all new converts to the christian faith to follow the mosaic law.

    any " church" that is enforcing circumcision are not following the doctrines set forth in the new testament.. they are legalistic not redemptive.
