The accusation of me being antinomian

The accusation of me being antinomian

At various times SDA followers or Richard Rives allies accused me of being antinomian. They accuse me because I reject their teachings about keeping only the Ten Commandments according to their philosophy posted online.

Well here is my reply to my accusers.

1 First let’s define ‘antinomian’… “antinomist” … “antinomianism”,

“antinomianism”

“Definitions”

“American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition”

“1.n. Theology The doctrine or belief that the Gospel frees Christians from required obedience to any law, whether scriptural, civil, or moral, and that salvation is attained solely through faith and the gift of divine grace.”

As we shall see I donot believe that I am free to break Scriptural, Legal or Moral rules or laws.

2 In my various posts I have neither taught nor accepted any teaching that requires me to break human laws nor Gods moral laws taught by Jesus. The Law of Moses was for the Jews. As much as Theonomists, Replacement Theologians, or other types of ‘reformers’ dislike my statements or teachings. Jesus fulfilled the Law and the Bible tells us so.

Acts 15:1-29, Romans 19-31, Romans 8:1-6, Romans 13:8-10, Galatians 3:10-14, Galatians 5:1-18 etc.

3 The Christian Bible includes multiple moral codes of which go beyond the Ten Commandments of the Old Testament. Let’s view them shall we.

Matthew 5:21-48, Matt 6:1-24, Matt 7:1-23, Acts 15:28-29, Romans 13:1-14, Romans 6:1-23, 1 Corinthians 5:1-13, 1 Cor 6:1-20, 1 Cor 7:1-16, 1 Cor 7:25-40, 1 Cor 11:1-34 are just a few examples.

4 I am not of Israel according to Exodus 20:1-26 through Exodus 40:1-38 and Leviticus 1:1-17 through Leviticus 27:1-34. But I am like Israel according to Galatians 3:1-29 BY FAITH  not  works of the Law.

5 The Christian Bible includes multiple teachings about following man made laws and Governments. These can be viewed here.

Romans 13:1-7

1 Peter 2:13-15

Titus 3:1-3

Am I antinomian? Do I break the teachings of Jesus for the sake of my philosophy or pet doctrine, theology? No I don’t.

IF I am guilty of anything… I am guilty of opening my Bible and discovering for myself by testing their teachings against the teachings of Jesus and the Disciples and if they are not correct. Then I post my response to their philosophies, theologies and doctrines on my blog here.

To call me silly names and to be upset with me because I am skeptical of their pet philosophy, theology or doctrine doesn’t make my critics right.

It simply makes them unwilling to test thier own theories according to the Bible.

For those in the Theonomy sects / cults it is far easier to call a Christian such as myself a “Antinomian”…  But trying to prove their claims without Biblical proof doesn’t make them correct nor does thier claims hold up to others skepticism. It only shows them to either to be too lazy to do the research or too caught up in man made philosophies to be able to disprove anything I have answered or refuted from thier blogs or websites.
