Living in Habitual Sin.

PProg_36_p79_PrideArrogancySelfConceitWorldlyGloryWhat shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Romans 6:1-2

{see also Romans 6:1-5, 15}

I want to consider the destructive, soul damning doctrine of antinomianism.

What is antinomianism?

It is a theological error, an extreme position concerning justification.

It is what I often call a “ditch”.

It is the polar opposite of legalism, which is another ditch.

Antinomianism is more of a mindset than a doctrine.

In other words, for the most part antinomianism is more of a lifestyle or an attitude rather than a belief.

Illustrations of antinomianism;

A person thinks within himself, “I watch pornography on my phone or TV everyday…I’m so thankful I’m saved and His grace is sufficient!”

or

“I rip people off in my business. Praise God my sins past present and future are under the blood of Jesus!”

or

“I mistreat my spouse but praise God for His amazing grace.”

I’m living with my girlfriend but thank God “once saved always saved”!

The Bible gives strong warnings against this kind of attitude.

If you have an antinomian spirit the Bible says you are an enemy of the cross of Christ.

It is an attitude that will carry you to hell.

This is one reason that modern day Christianity is a joke.

People have turned the grace of God into lasciviousness.

A lot of folks seem to be very fond of Gods grace but they are also very fond of sin. – Brother Shawn
