The Whole Christian Network
Each of God's little ones is perfectly created.
The Whole Christian Network exists to share research based information on intact care, development, and circumcision from a Biblical standpoint. We invite you to explore the many reasons that your child was designed with each and every detail in mind, and without mistake.
One of the monumental decisions you will make on your son's behalf very soon after birth is whether he will remain intact as he was created, or be circumcised.
There is much more in the New Testament on the subject of circumcision (and lack of it by early followers of Jesus) than Christians often first assume there to be, and it is our hope that this site will serve as a springboard into further learning.
When making the decision on behalf of our sons, we are parents who chose to investigate the subject in-depth. Both our faith in Jesus Christ, and our roles as protective mothers and fathers, are very important to us. The more that each of us discovered, the more we found just how much is not being taught in United States' churches today.
Included below are resources that may be especially helpful for believers when making this dramatic, impacting, and lifelong decision for their little one.
We hope that you feel encouraged, empowered, and deeply loved as you bring your new child into this world.
Verses relevant to genital autonomy and circumcision in the Bible.
This is the statement and story of a (circumcised) Christian father with 6 sons who turned to the Bible and medical literature when questioning whether or not to repeat the cutting upon the bodies of his own boys. He found there to be no medical, social, or Christian reason to cut, and they all remain intact. It may be a good story for other Christian parents.
