Bible: Galatians 6:12-14

6:12 Those who want to make a good showing in external matters 1  are trying to force you to be circumcised. They do so 2  only to avoid being persecuted 3  for the cross of Christ. 6:13 For those who are circumcised do not obey the law themselves, but they want you to be circumcised so that they can boast about your flesh. 4  6:14 But may I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which 5  the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
