HH: The fact that God does not change in his essential character (Mal 
3:6) does not mean that he does not act differently at different times, 
for the Bible shows that he does. You must prove claims such as there 
being "one covenant" from the Bible itself, which you have not done so 
far. There are actually quite a number of covenants, and to suggest that 
they cannot imply a change in God's procedures is a big claim. Frankly, 
Jer 31:31-33 itself shows that it is unsustainable because it posits a 
difference between the Mosaic covenant and the new covenant., which, as 
Gary, stressed, is not like the old covenant.

HH: Your claim to not be a Christian is odd in the face of your comments 
above. You are putting yourself forward as a disciple of Y'shua by your 
comments above, not to mention you quotation of Gal. 3:27-29 at the 
bottom of your posts. You may be giving a technical meaning to the word 
"Christian" that is not true to the NT, which uses it as an umbrella 
terms for  all the disciples of Y'shua. By the way, you need to add the 
chapter number 3 to your quote of Gal 3:27-29. Right now all you have 
are the verse numbers and the book abbreviation.
