Who Said That (about the Covenant of Works)?

speech bubble

This is important because it is customary for some theologians to give the erroneous impression that God wanted Adam to Eve to relate to him in terms of meritorious works rather than childlike faith…I am hesitant to call Jesus’ obedience in life and death the fulfillment of a ‘covenant of works’ . . . works implies a relationship with God that is more like an employer receiving earned wages that like a Son trusting a Father’s generosity…Keeping the covenant of God did not mean living perfectly. It meant a life of habitual devotion and trust to the Lord, that turned from evil and followed him in his ways.
