Puritan Board Freshman
Covenant in the scriptures is always one sided. And there is some different interpretations in one verse in the scripture that supposedly states that the pre fall garden was a covenant of works. So i do not believe that the bible uses this term in to make it a covenant. So i take the position that it was just a test, and a very short one. I think this was John Murray's position. I dont believe that it makes any difference in mans pre fall moral ability. But i believe it adds more liberty in law- grace distinction, since the biblical definition of covenant continues to be purely one sided.
