Great Link

Here is an excellent commentary on Antinomianism from James Henley Thornwell, (1812-1862). Thanks to Michael Bremmer for putting this up!

Antinomianism

Here are a couple of snippets from the article:

"When, after a dreary night of Arminian darkness and of legal bondage, the doctrines of grace are proclaimed with clearness and power, there are always found men who, unable to endure the light which reveals the folly of their slavish toils and unchristian schemes, pervert the Gospel and turn the grace of God into lasciviousness."


"The Gospel, like its blessed Master, is always crucified between two thieves -- legalist of all sorts on the one hand and Antinomians on the other; the former robbing the Saviour of the glory of his work for us, and the other robbing him of the glory of his work within us."

His cogent thought regarding Antinomianism is a welcome oasis in the desert of modern thought.
