Have you ever thought about why we circumcise our little boys in this country? We are told it's healthier for the boy, that it protects them from future health problems. But is that really true? What if there are actually health consequences and risks due to circumcision? And what about the sexual impacts it has on him as a man? On tonight's show we're talking to psychologist Dr. Ronald Goldman about the American tradition of male circucision and why you may want to re-think this procedure for your son.
On this episode we discuss:
* The history of circumcision and it's "anti-mastrubation" beginnings
* The health risks of circumcision
* The actual procedure of circumcision for a newborn boy
* The sexual and psychological impacts on boys and men from circumcision
* Why this practice of cutting off a functional part of a male's body continues to this day

Genesis 17:12 YHVH told Abraham: And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which [is] not of thy seed.
For those who have not had this privilege at birth don't be condemned. Circumcision of the heart comes first for some. Although it would have been easier on the eighth day for you, it may be a greater privilege to make a conscious decision of your own to covenant with father in this way.

This week, on Talkin' Scripture, we will talk about Spiritual Circumcision. Circumcision was commanded in the book of Genesis. It was a sign between the covenant between Abraham and God. What does circumcision have to do with us? A lot. And it is something we must take part in. Tune in to find out what I'm talkin about.
Kristen Tea and Crystal Wolf talk about the many myths that often are used to persuade parents to follow the routine infant circumcision that is happening in the U.S. today. If a parent becomes informed on the Truths of circumcision and see how invalid the myths are, they can see clearly how chosing to keep their boys intact is the way to go!
Ever wonder what the foreskin really does? Tune in to hear from Kristen Tea and Crystal Wolf all of the amazing purposes of this "flap of skin." Learn why you want to keep your boy intact, and avoid the horrors of circumcision. This is part one of educating future parents and current parents on why they want to research circumcision before cutting their little boy.
Circumcision is the removal of the foreskin, which is the skin that covers the tip of the male sexual organ. In the United States, it is often done before a new baby leaves the hospital. There are medical benefits and risks to circumcision. Possible benefits include a lower risk of urinary tract infections, penile cancer and sexually transmitted diseases. The risks include pain and a low risk of bleeding or infection. The practice of circumcision dates to ancient times. In ancient Egypt, prior to biblical times, circumcision was performed to improve male hygiene. Later, routine circumcision of male infants was part of the Abrahamic covenants with Jehovah, giving rise to religious circumcisions that continue to this day in the Jewish and Muslim faiths.
In Africa, attitudes towards circumcisions are changing from traditional beliefs into health and preventive measures. Until recently, the lines of circumcisions were clearly defined by cultures and traditions.
6 And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.
6 E o Senhor teu Deus circuncidará o teu coração, e o coração de tua descendência, para amares ao Senhor teu Deus com todo o coração, e com toda a tua alma, para que vivas.
We will discuss Jeremiah 9:23-26 and Romans 2:23-31. God said that he would punish all, the circumcised, as well as the uncircumcised, because of their transgressions to his laws and commandments. The Jews felt confident that they would be saved because of their external circumcision, but God requires an internal circumcision of the heart because an external circumcision meant that physically you were of God, but internally, you still served your sinful fleshly nature.
Today Sharon Ann Wikoff will share with listeners the story, Daddy,Why Are We Different?" This is a gentle and loving story, telling a little boy, in ways that he can understand, WHY he is different from his father... because he was not circumcised! Often a family will choose to have their son circumcised, just because they want him to resemble his father. Now, more and more families are coming to understand the trauma that routine circumcision puts a child through for no valid reason, and are saying NO... Do not cut my child. We must re-think traditions, especially traditions which inflict great pain. In addition, Sharon will be sharing 10 reason NOT to circumcise your child, from the website, www.Intact America.com
Many of you have heard of the story of three-month-old infant known as Baby Ashton has been left mutilated after doctors cut off his during what was supposed to be a 20-minute circumcision procedure.
Memphis, Tenn. mother Maggie Rhodes is now regretting taking her son Ashton to the Christ Community Health Center in August to get circumcised.
“After I went home and I discovered that my son’s was not there, I immediately froze, like, oh my God,” Rhode told My Fox Memphis.
Rhodes said she was told the procedure would only take 20 minutes but was left waiting for hours as she heard her baby scream throughout the entire procedure.
“It took them about three hours to do the circumcision and so my baby screamed the whole three hours, like the whole process,” Rhodes said. “Then even when she gave him back to us, he was still screaming.”
Rhodes said she was not notified of the botched procedure, instead she and her sister made the shocking discovery at home when Ashton was still screaming and they saw his diaper filled with blood.
“When she pulled back the cloth, like the thing was like, gone. She cut up instead of down, instead of cutting around the top of the ,” Rhodes was quoted.
Ms. Rhodes will be on the show today to dicuss this disturbing story with Chris. Appearing with Maggie on the show was yet another victim of Christ Community HC botched circumcision; Lena, who's son was also treated in just such a sloppy unprofessional manner. Make sure you are on hand to listen and/or call in. And feel free to add your thoughts on the commentsection on this page by srolling down.

What is the "why" for Jesus going to the cross. Why did HE have to die? Yes it was for our sins but the question is why did he have to die ? Were they not already giving tithes of bulls and goats as blood offerings to atone for sins? Were they not already under a priest system that God dwelled in the Most Holy place of the Temple and the high priest went in once a year for atonement? Why did all these traditions need to change? why did Jesus have to go to the cross if this system was working? Why did God make it PARAMOUNT to change the Covenant at the Cross and why is today's church oblivious to the change? Can we worship God they we want to like Cain or must we worship in Spirit and Truth?
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.
