      Lane - I don't think this video really answered the question that was posed in the title. I was really excited to see this and now I'm more confused.

      For one thing, he "declares" the age of the earth to be a sortof "Christian Liberty" issue, as if the bible gives us no guideline? What?

      If he means that one can still be saved and not believe what the bible says about the age the earth, I'd agree. But to somehow conclude that it is simply a matter of conscience whether we trust God's depiction of the history of the world or not, I must disagree. I guess I don't get his point...is he saying that if I believe God created the earth 6000 years ago like it says in the Bible then I am imposing some extra biblical thing on a brother if I rebuke him for believing otherwise?

      There was really no explanation of what it means to be antinomiam, either. What makes someone too far in either direction? What if a person believes that being homosexual is a Christian liberty?

      I don't believe this video helped in that manner at all.

      I'm not trying to be a downer. This is a question that has been on my mind since the month after I was saved and I eventually had to find a new church because my church leaned toward antinomianism under the guise of liberty. And now I know people who seem to go too far in the other direction...but it all centers on our definition of sin.

      If I think it is sin to do something...then it is sin to me. But whether or not it violates my conscience - IF God says my behavior or belief it sinful...then it IS sin.

      I do not believe liberty means we can engage in sin.

      I'm sorry, I'm not trying to make a long blog post/comment. Just want clarification.

      Not trying to argue, would love some discussion though.
