 Christ's Mediatorial Kingship -NRA
First of all, there is a common conception, especially in the RPCNA, that the doctrine of Christ's mediatorial kingship is distinctive to the Reformed Presbyterian Church and is even a uniquely RP contribution to the wider corpus of Reformed theology.

What this means is that while the RPCNA retains the traditional language of covenanting, it has in fact departed from the substance of the older idea of covenanting.

The EPC has made this a local option; so they are not “fignting” the issue either.
