New Covenant “Political” conduct

Under the Old Covenant administration, the individual watchword was “obedience”.

God was the nation’s sovereign under the guidance of a Divinely selected King and dynasty, along with a divinely ordained teaching order, explicating a written covenant.

Then, things changed and, radically, with the institution of the New Covenant and promised through Jeremiah and Ezekiel.

Under the tutelage of the Old Covenant, God dealt with Israel as with children whereas with True Israel (Galatians 6:16)

God now deals with spiritual adults.

No longer are we, the members of the New Covenant, provided detailed and specific guidelines for various circumstances; but, in their stead are three adequate guidelines: 1) Love God, 2) Love your neighbor and 3) utilize the former administration as principled examples ( 1Corinthians 10:11 & Romans 15:4).

Such are the parameters for New Covenant believers in any governmental context.
