Someone said this to me "Christ wanted his followers circumsized as well, so another reason I did it was religion." (her other reason was cleanliness) I know I've read on here that this was incorrect, can I have references? I don't know if this is aloud on here, but I can't access the spirituality forums yet, so if this post has to be moved, just delete it. I don't want a discussion on people's reason's for religious circs, I just want to know where in the Bible it mentions it. Thanks!

I'll offer some resources, without discussion/debate since the religion issue is not allowed here. Hope it helps!

Galatians 5:1-6, Galatians 6:12-16, 1 Corinthians 7:19, Romans 2:29, Colossians 2:8-12, Philippians 3:2-3, and Romans 12:2
