Call it the First or Rainbow Covenant, the Noahide or Universal Covenant . . . .
Whatever you call the awesome compact between God and all the Earth, He's put each of us on notice: every person - of every race, sex, age, status and condition - is sacred, "made in the 'image' of God."
(Genesis 1:26, 1:27, 5:1)
The Universal Covenant's Seven Commandments - humankind's eternal precepts of morality and decency - follow. The key to them is Chapter Nine of Genesis, with its seven declarations of the word "covenant." God gives us these Commandments not just to civilize the human family but - as the index to every "logical law" of Biblical Revelation - to guide our species to the very highest levels of God-consciousness and wisdom.
This isn't "Judaism," by any means. Some call it Noahism, No'achism, or Noahidism, Really, it's simply the sacred Guidance revealed to Noah, Abraham, David and all the Bible's prophets: profound moral teachings, on the one hand, and beyond that, the only possible faith and life-path for any thinking person.
