Antinomianism – the belief that Christians, by virtue of divine grace, are freed not only from biblical law and church-prescribed behavioral norms, but also from all moral law; the heretical doctrine that Christians are exempt from the obligations of moral law; the doctrine or belief that the Gospel frees Christians from required obedience to any law, whether scriptural, civil, or moral, and that salvation is attained solely through faith and the gift of divine grace; the belief that moral laws are relative in meaning and application as opposed to fixed or universal.
Frost on the Field by Eric Trethewey read by Jon Mooallem.
Hat Tip: The Marginalian
Sunday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation. You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, amuse, bemuse or simply muse, but not abuse.
People with good intentions make promises. People with good character keep them.
