Antinomian Christians

Rom 6:15  What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means!

Regardless of our religious confession these days, who can dispute that in many ways religious beliefs seem irrelevant to our world? On television we see Roman Catholics fawning over the pope in St. Louis while ignoring his teachings about contraception and abortion. Southern Baptists, who used to be known for decrying illicit sex, drugs, and rock and roll music—lest they lead to dancing, drinking, or playing cards—are now portrayed in a national magazine as antinomian (a person who believes that Christians are free from the moral law by virtue of grace) Christians who have made peace with an anything-goes morality. - Dever, Mark (2004-09-30).
