      Thomas Vincent, The Shorter Catechism of the
      Westminster Assembly Explained and Proved<br>from Scripture:
      "Q. 3. How many covenants hath God made with
      man?<br>A. There are two covenants which God hath made with
      man� 1. A covenant of works; 2. A covenant of grace.
      <br>Q. 4. When did God enter into a covenant of works
      with man?<br>A. God did enter into a covenant of works
      with man immediately after his creation, when he was
      yet in a state of innocency, and had committed no
      sin."<br>"Q. 6. By virtue of which covenant of God is it that
      his elect are saved?<br>A. 1. Not by virtue of the
      covenant of works. "<br>- thebishopsdoom<br>Augustine:
      "But even the infants, not personally in their own
      life, but according to the common origin of the human
      race, have all broken God�s covenant in that one in
      whom all have sinned. Now there are many things called
      God�s covenants besides those two great ones, the old
      and the new, which any one who pleases may read and
      know. For the first covenant, which was made with the
      first man, is just this: 'In the day ye eat thereof, ye
      shall surely die.'"
