Soul-surgery: circumcision inspires faith

Remembering your circumcision will make you think of God and thus help resist sex-lust.
Talmud

Ancients openly declare that paedocircumcision suppresses sexuality and facilitates religiousness. For some reason this self-evident truth nowadays largely remains unrecognized. Even deeply religious people are unaware of it. Perhaps this is so because they are circumcised either in flesh or at heart or both. So they either cannot answer or cannot frame the proper questions. Alternatively, the Circumcision complex proposes scientific testimonies of the Judaic holy writ’s assertion that circumcision disposes to god-loving.

The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him : neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
Paul, I Corinthians 2:14

The circumcised man does not adequately perceive the sensory facts of life because they are irrational to him. This is a modern paraphrase of Paul’s statement that natural man does not attain religiousness which admits that circumcision instills piety. Ancient people were close to nature and had good common sense. Despite his being circumcised Paul had a realistic judgment on the effects of circumcision. He had no doubt that circumcision suppresses sex-lust and spiritualizes man. Unlike the modern proponents of paedocircumcision he didn’t hide or contest the original purpose of the practice to redirect passions towards god.

And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live.
Deuteronomy 30:6

Ancients speak of circumcision of the heart or mind. Apparently, they poorly differentiate between ‘heart’ and ‘mind’ which is the reason why both words occur in different translations. To them those words were nearly synonyms and were probably related to instinctual and mental dispositions or to desire, intention and faith altogether. By presenting himself as a heart surgeon the Old Testament God openly states that circumcision is a psychological manipulation that fabricates believers. Actually, the Circumcision complex has little to add to his statement. Still, this does not make it a pro-Semitic or pro-religious concept.
