Covenant Theology

Reformed Covenantal Inconsistency – Barry Horner

“If the land promise in the Abrahamic covenant was conditional (that is, based on an unspecified degree of obedience), then does the same principle of conditionality equally apply to the fulfillment of other aspects of the Abrahamic covenant, and particularly the resultant new covenant?  If it is claimed in response that the Abrahamic covenant has distinctive conditional and unconditional elements, I would reply that such an attempted covenantal bifurcation is exegetically untenable, especially where a Calvinist understanding of Scripture is concerned, and indicates a fundamental doctrinal weakness.”   – Barry E. Horner, Future Israel: Why Christian Anti-Judaism Must Be Challenged, 47.
