Circumcision of the Heart


How does one circumcise his heart?



An effective Baptism circumcises the heart.

By “effective”, I would say an adult needs to repent of his worldly ways, and then be received into the Church in Baptism.

For a child, it’s simply Baptism.


11In him you were also circumcised, in the putting off of the sinful nature, not with a circumcision done by the hands of men but with the circumcision done by Christ, 12having been buried with him in baptism and raised with him through your faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead. -Col 2
