ARE WE CRUCIFIED TO THE WORLD? OR ARE WE WORKING TO IMPRESS IT?

"Those who want to make a good impression outwardly are trying to compel you to be circumcised.  The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ.  Not even those who are circumcised obey the law, yet they want you to be circumcised that they may boast about your flesh.  May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me and I to the world.  Neither circumcision or uncircumcision means anything; what counts is a new creation."--Gal. 6:12-15The cross of Christ is foolishness to the world. Scripture tells us that many times. Yet the world loves religious symbols and is enamored by stories of religious sacrifices. 

Christ was under continuous fire from religious people in Israel because He didn't adhere to the rituals and regulations that their religious leaders had instituted over the centuries. 

You and I should drop all defenses that involve our "religious Christianity"…
