Re: Considering not circumcising. No judgments please.

First, excuse me if I'm totally off here commenting on your situation, as a Christian who never lived in America.

You are in conflict because of the expectations/needs of
- your community,
- your son,
- god, and
- yourself as parents.

Now, bring these in order of importance!

I have the impression that the problem is between you and the community, and that god and your son will be fine with each other!

Personally, from the new testament I take that there are things more important to god than strictly obeying rules. Such as love, empathy and generosity. I don't believe he wants anyone to be in unnecessary pain.

You will always get comments on many of your parenting choices! You can tell the critics you want him to decide later. He will decide depending how he lives religion, how much he wants to confirm to the community, and how he feels about additional surgery and changes on his body.

Good luck!

Idk what to say, as I believe there's not such the need to follow old testament laws, and we do not circumcise. But it's a very personal decision, and I respect that you're giving it so much thought. I agree with you, what God instructed and what is done today are two different things. GL in thinking things through

No judgement here - we didn't circumcise although we aren't Jewish and don't have that element to consider. I agree with the mamas who have said it's a very personal decision though. I hope you're able to make the decision with confidence and peace!
