Post-flood Noahic covenant (Gen 8-9)

In this sermon on Genesis 8:20-9:17, we look at God’s non-redemptive covenant with Noah after the flood, which governs and sets the terms for Christian life in God’s common kingdom.  This sermon furthers the two kingdoms argument that Christ’s call to turn the other cheek in the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5 is limited to life in the church or in the kingdom of heaven, and is not an ethic applicable to life in the civil kingdom governed by the justice-enforcing state.
