Notice of reason and intention :
For the Last few Months there has been some content which has been aimed at Renewed Covenant Ministry / JS Lowther by our former ministry partner Ted R. Weiland in regards to RNCM’s respective Doctrine of Justification by Faith and obedience to the Law of God (Torah).
So, in order to set the record straight Bro. Lowther has decidedly taken these “Key Words…” to task in order to show the error of it’s assessment as proposed by the Evangelist of Mission to Israel Ministries. Namely that those who believe in the relevance of All of God’s Law as revealed in the Pentateuch, have “blurred the lines between” the New Covenant and the Old Covenant.
For the Record:
For RNCM, the Old Covenant is not a chronology (time or era ) that begins with Moses and ends with Christ, rather it is the time in the life of an Israelite before or after he/she has realized the forgiveness power of the Blood of the New Covenant (Mathew 26:28 / Hebrews 8) and believes it by the hearing of Faith as revealed by the Spirit in Grace . This Renewal of a believer is NOT a continuation of the ‘Old Covenant’ rather it is the recognition of one’s prior and present deadness in sin NOW being shed by Christ’s Faith given by Grace, a believers Newness in recognizing Christ’s imputed Righteousness for them (Rom 4-5) . We Believe that the Renewed Man or inner man now seeks the ‘Good Works before ordained” (Eph 2:8-10) in all of God’s Holy, Just and Good LAW (Rom 7), now that a believer is delivered by the Ministration of Life from the ministration of death the ‘old man ‘ and body of death that did not walk by Faith in the Spirit has been raised to live again unto God who made him in Righteousness (II Cor 3).
These messages are not intended to cause further division, but to call attention to Vital problems in this system of thought as it is being taught in these messages.
It can be assured and proven that these refutations come on the heals of correspondence written in the nature of brotherly love to Bro. Weiland which have been ignored, mocked and unheeded. Consider this nature as these Answers are continued in the time to come.
In the Love of Christ the Redeemer,
Bro. JS Lowther
Answering Ted R. Weiland – Answering pertinent portions of “Key Words to Vital Truths, Part 20” –
What is the Law of the New Covenant? , Is the time from Moses to Christ (“Mosaic Covenant”) a time when God accepted Faith as Righteousness? , What is the Cursed part of the Law? , Can Law Cancel a Promise before ratified? , Receiving the Spirit by baptism, or by the hearing of faith?
