But neither Titus, who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised:
Take note! I, Paul, tell you that if you get circumcised, Christ will not benefit you at all.
Again I testify to every man who gets circumcised that he is obligated to keep the entire law.
You who are trying to be justified by the law are alienated from Christ; you have fallen from grace!
For by the Spirit we eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness from faith.
For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision accomplishes anything; what matters is faith working through love.
Because we have heard that some to whom we gave no authorization went out from us and troubled you with their words and unsettled your hearts,
Paul wanted Timothy to go with him, so he took him and circumcised him because of the Jews who were in those places, since they all knew that his father was a Greek.
To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win Jews; to those under the law, like one under the law-- though I myself am not under the law-- to win those under the law.
To those who are outside the law, like one outside the law-- not being outside God's law, but under the law of Christ-- to win those outside the law.
