A Sacred Agreement Is Called

Within the Gospel, a covenant means a sacred agreement or reciprocal promise between God and a person or group of men. By making a covenant, God promises a blessing for obedience to certain commandments. He sets the conditions of His covenants and reveals those conditions to His prophets. If we choose to obey the terms of Confederation, we will obtain promised blessings. If we decide not to obey, He retains the blessings and, in some cases, punishment is also inflicted. Our work has a historical context. Over the past two thousand years, Christians have wrongly portrayed Jews as infidels and have collectively responsible for Jesus` death and thus cursed by God. In accordance with many official Christian statements, we reject this accusation as historically false and theologically invalid. He suggests that God may be unfaithful to the eternal covenant with the Jewish people. We modestly acknowledge the suffering that this distorted representation has brought to the Jewish people. We regret this teaching of contempt. Our conversion requires that we build a new teaching of respect.

This task is important at all times, but the deadly crisis in the Middle East and the appalling resurgence of anti-Semitism around the world give it a special urgency. Encouraged by the work of Jewish and Christian colleagues, we offer the following ten opinions on the contemplation of our fellow Christians. We ask all Christians to reflect on their faith in the light of these statements. For us, this is a sacred obligation. The Mosaic covenant refers to a biblical covenant between God and the biblical Israelites. [4] [5] The foundation and provisions of the Mosaic Covenant are recorded in the first five books of the Hebrew Bible, traditionally attributed to the Mosaic author and called together torah, and this covenant is sometimes called the Law of Moses or the Mosaic Law or mitzvot of 613. What is an alliance? Why are latter-day Saints called a federal people? 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] Literally a contract. In the Bible (see also the Bible) an arrangement between God and His people, in which God makes promises to His people and generally requires of them a particular behavior. .
