The problem of antinomianism is not a result of taking the gospel too far, but of not taking it far enough. After treating the subject of justification, Paul anticipates the question, “Shall we then sin so that grace may abound?” His answer: “No—may it never be!” How, then, do we make those necessary strides in holiness? By adding a dose of fear or by being exposed to the wideness of the gospel? Those who are united to Christ are not only justified but are renewed and transformed. Unfortunately, many people throughout history have been falsely charged with advocating antinomianism simply for preaching the gospel of free justification and imputed righteousness.
