    if that is true...

    Why did so many adopt it instead of staying in Covenant Theology?

    Do you mean the term or the teaching?

    A better question: why did it take until AD 1517 before someone in the church made popular the statement that we are saved by grace through faith, not by being a baptised member of a particular church?

    There were many that did they just were considered heritics and were in hiding. Much of the teaching of the Apostles and the early church leaders taught the truth. It was just not what the Orthodox church of the time believed. To be caught with that belief meant death, but they held on to it and then came a preist named Martin Luther.

    Would you say that God aleways had even before the reformation those in the Church who were the faithful remnant in Christ, most were in Church?

    God had a faithful remnant in Israel many times, and He has always had a faithful remnent. There will be a faithful remnant of 144,000 Jews who will be saved and proclaim God's word. In the tribulation according to Jesus through His prophet we are told in Revelation. Most had a church in some form many may have been in the church but they were truly saved and many knew the word.
