I was watching the 700 club one day (it’s not a show I watch regularly, btw) and something on that show alarmed me. According to this CBN website, the establishment of the Jamestown colony, 400 years ago was a covenant:
In remembrance of the 400th anniversary of this sacred moment in time, we reclaim the holy covenant of 1607 and we reaffirm that America is dedicated to our Lord Jesus Christ, for His glory and for His purpose, and to confirm our nation’s mission as described in the prayer of our forefather: … the Gospel shall go forth to not only this New World, but the entire world.
Coming from a Chrisitan like Pat Robertson, I find this disturbing as I thought that it was a basic Christian belief that the covenant instituted at the last supper was the last one God would make with any group of people.
Am I reading too much into his use of the word “covenant”?
