The key to freedom

Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him. This is my rule in all the churches.  Was anyone at the time of his call already circumcised? Let him not seek to remove the marks of circumcision. Was anyone at the time of his call uncircumcised? Let him not seek circumcision.  For neither circumcision counts for anything nor uncircumcision, but keeping the commandments of God.

How staggeringly more healthy is Paul than many who claim to follow him.  Keeping God’s commandments?  Oh that’s the key to freedom from the anxiety of identity politics.  You can ignore people who tell you what you must be or become.  All you need to do is obey God.  That is good news that Paul wrote to churches so they could stop judging themselves and one another.

You would almost suspect that Paul thought Psalm 119 is inspired or something.
