But I guess I have to. I don't mean to offend anyone with this post, but I've got to tell the truth.
For those of you looking for justification for getting it on with your immediate family, New Covenant Theology isn't for you.
And please don't tell me that this is the normative view of NCTer's.
Also don't tell me it is consistent with what NCTer's teach.
It's not. On the same token, couldn't we say the same thing about Dispies or even Covenantals?
Dispensationalists believe the Law was abrogated.
Covenantals agree that this commandment is not included in the Decalogue, which is the 'summary of the moral law'.
So don't say it. It's ignorant. Both for the NCTer who wants to affirm it, and the NCT detractors who want to create a new strawman for easy beating.
Now can we get back to some real debate concerning what NCT actually affirms and not be distracted by every nutjob who thinks he can speak for NCT?
You know what? Just do a web search for John Reisinger and Fred Zaspel.
Oh yeah, get Five Views on Law and Gospel, and read the chapter by Douglas Moo.
Then tell me what NCT is all about.
