Podcast – Episode 12 (Circumcision and the Church Today)

In this episode of the Take Up the Sword Podcast, Ryan is joined again by his friend Matt DeSmidt to discuss how legalistic practices in the church have given people a false sense of security when it comes to their salvation. Paul tells the Jews in the Roman church that neither having the law nor circumcision nor even being Jewish was enough to guarantee a right standing with God. Ryan and Matt discuss specific topics and issues in the church today (i.e. baptism, worship style, denominational allegiance, etc.) that people in the church have thought were important for their salvation, instead of the faith in Christ.
