Well, if that's your best shot, then there's no more to be said. 'Let each be convinced in his own mind.'
The fact is that the 'radical change in covenant policy' was clearly forcasted in Jer 31:31ff (and also IMHO Joel 2:28-29). The 'sign which was done for thousands of years', is clearly done away with. Or do you still circumcise your male children? <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" /> Remember also that half the OT covenant people received no covenant sign at all.

'For if that first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been found for a second (Heb 8:7).
