Real Christians and Antinomians (False Christians).
I have been saying that Christianity is rotten, when in fact Real Christians
are good, though not perfect. Those Christians who are evildoers are not Real
Christians. Though in truth, I have not met many Real Christians in my life.
Many Christians who are true Christians have been teaching about Antinomians
since Christianity started. This is not something new!

In the video I mention my Testimony. It has since been updated to 2017.
I have learned today an error that has invaded my teaching. My teaching was
right, but I was throwing the Real Christians into the same Sin Bin as False
Christians. I was refusing to call myself a Christian because of what the False
Christians were doing.
So, I had the truth, but was misapplying it and I am sorry.
However, I have not made contact with many Real Christians. I suppose it’s
because my Lord Jesus is sending me to help False Christians.
WHAT’S ITS BASIC DOCTRINE?
In his late book, Paths to Power, A.W. Tozer defined it this way. “Fundamental
Christianity in our times is deeply influenced by that ancient enemy of
righteousness, Antinomianism. The creed of the Antinomian is easily stated: We
are saved by faith alone; works have no place in salvation; conduct is works,
and is therefore of no importance. What we do cannot matter as long as we
believe rightly. The divorce between creed and conduct is absolute and final.
The question of sin is settled by the Cross; conduct is outside the circle of
faith and cannot come between the believer and God. Such in brief, is the
teaching of the Antinomian. And so fully has it permeated the Fundamental
element in modern Christianity that it is accepted by the religious masses as
the very truth of God. Antinomianism is the doctrine of grace carried by
uncorrected logic to the point of absurdity. It takes the teaching of
justification by faith and twists it into deformity.”
I know there are some (maybe you, dear reader) who might say, “That’s the
gospel! That’s Grace! That’s what I believe and practice!” Oh, if we would only
take the time to seek God, pray and read the Gospel, unfettered by the
“Doctrines of Men”, we would surely find that Antinomianism is ANOTHER GOSPEL
(i.e.- not Christianity).
Charles Finney in the 1800’s spoke of it “as the opposite extreme to legalism.
Legalist are all work, Antinomians no work. Professing to have yielded up their
whole agency to Christ, they throw all responsibility upon Him and do nothing.
Under pretence of being led by the Spirit and of waiting for God to reveal His
will to them, they give themselves up very much to spiritual indolence
Noah Webster, in his 1878 Dictionary, defined Antinomianism as: “one of a sect
who were charged with maintaining that, under the gospel dispensation, the moral
law is of no use or obligation.”
1-Webster’s 1878 Dictionary defined ‘indolence’ as “inaction, or want of
exertion of body or mind, proceeding from love of ease or aversion to toil;
