1 As to what remains, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you is no trouble to me and is a safeguard for you.
2 Look out for the dogs, look out for the workers of evil, look out for those who mutilate the flesh.
3 For we are the circumcision, those who serve, minister and worship by the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and have put no confidence in the flesh—
4 although I myself have reason for confidence in the flesh also. If anyone else thinks he has reason for confidence in the flesh, I have more:
5 circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; a Pharisee as to the law;
6 a persecutor of the church as to zeal ; having become blameless as to righteousness in the law,

Philippians 3:11
Articular infinitive of intended result
7 But whatever things were to me gain, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ.
8 But still indeed, I count even everything as loss because of the surpassingness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, on account of whom I suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ
9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through the faithfulness of Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faithfulness —
10 that I may know him and know the power of his resurrection, and experience a sharing in his sufferings, being conformed to his death,
11 if by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.
The aorist could point us to Paul's experience on the road to Damascus and/or the events following.
Genitive tou with the infinitive indicates purpose
