Does this mean you're going to be getting circumcised? If it's a necessity, then surely everyone needs to be doing it, not just the males. Unless we males are considered inferior to the females and need an "extra assurance" from Yahuweh in order to be a part of His family.

I also disagree that the spiritual and physical side can't live without each other. So many people in the world only have the physical side living - their spiritual side is completely dead. And obviously the soul can live without a physical body, the "soul" being the non-physical/spiritual side of our being.
And yes, Yahushua did purchase us with our blood. But not our physical bodies. He purchased our souls. So we are most certainly a part of Yahuweh's family.
However, I am still a Goy/Gentile. I haven't been magically changed into a physical descendant of Abraham. I am not a Jew/Israeli, the only true physical descendants/seed/progeny/offspring of Abraham.
As stated in the other thread, being physically circumcised is not about being a member of Yahuweh's family - it's about being considered a physical Jew
who possess the land of Yisra'el as his home land. That is the "his people" whom the uncircumcised Jew is "cut off from". That is why "foreigners and strangers" (again, see the other thread) who indwelt the land of Yisra'el had to be circumcised. If you want to live in the land of Yisra'el legally according to Yahuweh, you have to be circumcised, which is the mark of being a physical Jew who has said to Yahuweh, "Yes, I accept your covenant regarding having Yisra'el as my home, and being a sign bearer."
A Goy/Gentile is the beneficiary of the signs that the Jews/Israeli's were to bear and proclaim - we're not the sign bearers ourselves.
As stated in the previous thread: there is no verse in Scripture (Torah, Prophets, and Psalms) that says "Goy/Gentile" and "be circumcised" together.
