Wisdom on Destiny Relationships — 2 Comments

  1. I am uneasy when Christians seek to form a “covenant” with each other as a basis for unity, since this is not Biblical, and because the covenant which each one should have with Christ should be the sufficient basis for the unity of the Body. The only example of people forming an extra covenant in the New Testament I can recall is in Acts 23: 12 where some Jews covenanted together to kill Paul. 

    The parts of my physical body do not need to “covenant” with each other in order for it to function, because it works organically in a natural way. The Church in Christ may be said to work organically in a supernatural way.  The only extra covenant between Christians, which does not add to Scripture – and which, therefore, is not evil – is the marriage covenant, but this indeed is a reflection of Christ’s marriage with His Bride [Ephesians 5: 31-33].
