I was listening to a lesson on Covenant Theology this morning, Dr. Stephen Myers spoke of the CoW with Adam and also mentioned the creation ordinances, which was the first I had ever heard them referred to as such! Concerning the ordinances of procreation and marriage... how do they coincide with Paul in 1 Corinthians 7? I know in 1 Cor. 7:35 Paul kind of rounds off the situation by saying "This I say for your own benefit; not to put a restraint upon you, but to promote what is appropriate and to secure undistracted devotion to the Lord." So hes compelling married and unmarried people to undistracted devotion, but distractions are sure to come to the married and not married for he just stated in vv 32 - 34 "One who is unmarried is concerned about the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord; but one who is married is concerned about the things of the world, how he may please his wife, and his interests are divided." I probably need to continue to listen to the next lessons as I know Dr. Myers mentioned at the end of this lesson that he'll be discussing the continuity of the CoW in the next lesson... and probably the continuity of the creation ordinances, which thinking about it: We still ought to work 6 days We still ought to keep the Sabbath, not lawfully of course, but the rest is surely blessed after laboring 6 days... And on the last two, I suppose I'll learn lol Just some thoughts... May God bless you all today, in our Lord Jesus!
