13: Christ suffered and died to abolish circumcision and all rituals as the basis of salvation

This is part 13 of 50 in a series based on the book ‘Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die’. Read the introductory post or view all the posts in the series.

References: Galatians 5:11, Galatians 6:12

The cross means freedom from the enslavement of ritual. (Page 45)

I’m sure thankful I don’t have to follow the 613 laws in the Old Testament in order to be right with God.  Faith in Christ and His finished work at the cross is sufficient. Unlike other religions that tell their adherents to do certain things, biblical Christianity says “Already done!”
