    Professing Christians are Externally in Covenant with God

    We come to the third thing intended, and that is: the holiness of the Covenant
    under which all pass that outwardly profess God to be their God and accept of Jesus
    Christ to be their Lord. This is the highest holiness next to that of sanctification and
    true godliness. Now because this is a controverted point, and many who confess an
    outward Covenant-holiness that was typical among the Jews yet deny any such federal
    holiness in the New Testament and therefore say all the holiness in the Gospel is a
    moral, real holiness, we must be the more tender what we deliver herein.

    So there are Christians who see the NT as a covenant and others who see it, not as a covenant, but more narrowly as moral instruction?
