| since a "trust" can be declared by a "will" alone (if the intent is for a charitable purpose), why would one not see the new covenant as a 'executory contract' with "equity eyes"? Is not the christ, yahshua, the testator? (Heb 1 & 9)

Gives new meaning to the word "faith" in James 2:18 doesn't it? Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my trust by my deeds. [/quote]
* faith & trust are same: https://biblehub.com/greek/4102.htm (definition: faith, belief, trust, confidence; fidelity, faithfulness.)
* if the maxim is "equity sees as done, what ought to be done" and the world has already been judged with righteousness, and the people with equity (ps. 98:0), why do we remain hesitant between two opinions and remain in double-mindedness?
just because one may be under the "grace" (equity) of a new, better sacred trust does that give one license to "sin" so grace may increase? or does it give license to once again become slaves to men, after being redeemed by so great a price? by a specie of payment greater than gold/silver and the bankrupt traditions of men?
is coming out of babylon (idolatry) and egypt (slavery) really so complicated once one sees the matter in light of the James 2?
isn't it time to go deeper into spiritual maturity?
maybe start here? https://www.hosfell.org/single-post/way-showers
