Paul attempts to remove the importance of circumcision by pointing out that Abraham was uncircumcised when he received his revelations from God, so it is faith alone that is important to be considered righteous.

Just as Adam's sin condemned all people, so Jesus' righteous sacrifice will bring many to a righteous path.

Apparently Paul is presenting his argument in human terms because of the limitations of his audience, perhaps it would make more sense if he hadn't.

The old law is still important because it allowed people to know what sin was (like that awful sin of wanting what others have, y'know that evil little bedrock of capitalism).
