Theological Word Of Today

Today’s Theological Word is Antinomianism. Antinomianism.

This is the habit or custom of being opposed to that stupid travel company that has that irritating roaming gnome yelling at me from various travel destinations in the world. How in the world does that seem like good marketing? I don’t even get it, how does a gnome get to Australia in the first place?

Not really, I just made that up. Antinomianism is based on two Greek words, anti–which means “against” and nomos, which means “law.” Antinomianism is the art of living without law.

Antinomianism is a cool word to say, as most big words are, and it is quite fun to call people this. It’s especially fun to call people this because it implies that you are more spiritual than those liberated sinning types.

The interesting thing about it is that all believers are technically antinomianists. We are no longer under law but under grace. At the same time, Paul tells us we are under the law of Christ, so it just depends on what law you are talking about.

Basically, antinomianism is the philosophy that you should eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow you can do it again, baby! It’s not a good thing and has no support in Scripture. Should we sin that grace may abound? God forbid!
