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.  Each one should remain in the condition in which he was called.  Were you a bondservant, when called?  Do not be concerned about it.  (But, if you can gain your freedom, avail yourself of the opportunity.)  For he who was called, in the Lord, as a bondservant is a freedman of the Lord.  Likewise, he who was free, when called, is a bondservant of Christ.  You were bought with a price.  Do not become bondservants of men.  So, brothers, in whatever condition each was called, there let him remain with God.  (1 Corinthians 7.17-24)
