A Blow at the Root of Antinomianism
If we are saved by God’s grace, what does it matter how we live? Why cannot we merely eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we might die?
In this short treatment on “antinomianism” (meaning, “against the law”), Puritan extraordinaire John Flavel tackles this all-important topic and demonstrates from Scripture and reason why Christians are obliged to obey the law, even though we are under grace. The person who professes grace but denies the necessity of the moral law denies the very doctrine he or she supposedly professes. So, should Christians continue in sin so that grace may abound? Perhaps the apostle Paul put it best when he answered this very question—“God forbid!”
Discover in these few short pages the necessity of the moral law in the life of the believer and see how it is integrally tied to the whole of the Christian life.
