RC Sproul Jr on Antinomianism

Such a doctrine earns its stripes as the glorious gospel in a simple enough manner?it is the enemy of legalism. Add to that how soft and sweet it looks. Legalists, after all, are those grim looking people that are always telling you not to drink or smoke (or, grimmer still, telling you babies are a blessing, and spending the school day with them is a blessing too).

The antinomians, on the other hand, are warm hearted caring folk. I mean, if you?re going to err, isn?t it better to err on the side of grace?

    I just liked the way he said “Legalists, after all, are those grim looking people that are always telling you not to drink or smoke (or, grimmer still, telling you babies are a blessing, and spending the school day with them is a blessing too). The antinomians, on the other hand, are warm hearted caring folk.”

    I cracked up.

    I have to admit I don’t understand this statement at all.

  4. RC Sproul Jr. is big on the “quiverfull” mentality (have as many kids as God blesses you with) and homeschooling.

    Sproul’s characterization of the noble “Antinomian” is absolutley correct!
