Propositionalist Religion & The Covenant Idea

One of the deep benefits of the constructed Covenant Idea is found in its ability to replace not only a personal God that one must commune with on a minute by minute basis, but even the Idea of God, that God Person qua abstract properties as you might find in the WCF. One can have a Propositionalist religion, replete with the books, seminaries, preaching, teaching, debates, and internet blustering and boasting while not even really having God, or even a god. What gives you life? The Covenant. What gives the sacraments their efficacy? The Covenant. What gives the scriptures their unification and intelligibility? The Covenant Idea.
