The Objectivity of the Covenant:


Thema: The Objectivity of the Covenant

Douglas Wilson summarizes the historic Protestant view of the covenant.

" The church is therefore a covenanted body, organically connected to Christ. As a covenant body in history, it contains organic members who are faithful and organic members who are not. The faithful members persevere to the end only because God has decreed it and given it to them. The unfaithful members are cut out because of unbelief. While they experienced grace, they were not given persevering grace."

Similitudes: Stories with a Point
Food for the Journey - Douglas Wilson

"The sun was westering, and as Andrew had nothing better to do, he walked slowly across the meadow toward it. The meadow was surrounded on all sides by a thick army of trees, and Andrew did not quite know what he should do. As he walked, pushing the grass aside with his hands, he stumbled into a little clearing—a meadow within the meadow."

Pictura: A Story, not too Long
Pointy Top - Nathan Wilson

" My son is looking at me. He has been eating yogurt. I have a daughter as well. She's around here somewhere, a wife also. I fish out a practically decomposed mini-wheat from the milk depths and offer it to the boy's face. His face accepts."
