      Earnestly Contending for the Faith Against Antinomianism
      (James White)

      Sunday, March 16, 2008

      Antinomianism (from the Greek αντι, "against" + νομος, "law"), or lawlessness (in the Greek Bible: ανομια, which is "unlawful"), in theology, is the idea that members of a particular religious group are under no obligation to obey the laws of ethics or morality as presented by religious authorities. (The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language: Fourth Edition, 2000.) In other words, antinomianism can categorize those people who live lacivious lives, but still say "I'm under grace, not under the law." They believe that since they are under grace, they have no need to keep the moral law to any degree, and they can sin as much as they like. A popular term that has been used to "excuse" this type of behavior is "the Carnal-Christian". James White, in this second of three lectures, explains why the Carnal-Christian is a myth and why we need to earnestly contend for the faith against this enemy of antinomianism.
