A Solemn And Binding Agreement Between God And Humanity

Such covenants are also called covenants of promises or unconditional covenants. God`s covenants with Noah (Genesis 9:8-17), Abraham (Genesis 15:18), and David (2 Samuel 7; 23:5) fit into this pattern. In each of these cases, it is God alone who, by a solemn oath, undertakes to maintain the covenant. Federal theology, the theological system within Reformed Christianity, says that God refers primarily to man through three covenants: the covenant of redemption, the covenant of works, and the covenant of grace. In this theological system, a covenant can be defined as “an immutable, divinely imposed legal arrangement between God and man that sets the conditions for their relationship.” [12] In the Bahá`í Faith, a religious covenant is seen as a binding agreement between God and men, in which particular behavior is required of individuals and God in return guarantees certain blessings. . . .
