Randy Seiver’s Graceless Covenant

Seiver obviously wishes to aim at success by debunking orthodoxy and breaking a lance for his own, very personal, version of New Covent Theology. In response to my answer to his […]

There is some clown named George M. Ella at http://evangelica.de/articles/covenant-theology-as-seen-by-new-covenant-…whose license to write ought to be rescinded. Oh, that’s right, there is […]

Covenant Theology as Seen by New Covenant Theology: Part Two

     Part One dealt with the alleged agreements between the two covenant concepts, though neither the NCT’s own views of God’s Covenant with His Son, nor their erroneous presentation of Covenant Theology represent Biblical teaching.

Covenant Theology as Seen by the NCT: Part One

These have radically altered their common beliefs of some dozen years ago and are now expanding their Marcionite [1. Marcion: Second […]
