Found something very interesting
- I was going through some material and happened across a section in a
work by Jonathan Edwards in which he defends covenanting as a gospel
"First, I shall endeavor to establish this point, viz. That it is the
duty of God's people thus publicly to own the covenant; and that
was not only a duty in Israel of old, but is so in the christian
church, and to the end of the world; and that it is a duty required
of adult persons before they come to sacraments. And this being a
point of great consequence in this controversy, but a matter seldom
handled, (though it seems to be generally taken for granted.) I shall
be the more particular in the consideration of it."
That's just a snip, as the entire chapter is a defense of covenanting.
I'll have to pick up reading Edwards tomorrow. I'm off to bed for
Good night all,
