Why Being Called "Antinomian" is not a Sign of Orthodoxy

Jason Hood has another cool article out over at CT. This time he is arguing that being accused of being antinomian is not a badge of honor for orthodox Christians. Here's a quote to whet your appetite: "Jesus' requirements for any and all who wish to be his disciple and bear his name—self-denial and cross-bearing, holiness and purity—will inevitably sound like legalism in a restraint-free culture dominated by Eat, Pray, Love spirituality and Joel Osteen-grade theology."

many Reformed folks label as antinomian any (such as I)who believe that the Law has no authority over believers today. In the strictest sense they are right. Of course, they are wrong if they really think I am saying there are no commands or demands in gospel living.
