    I believe Martin-Foul-Mouthed-Luther coined this term; that should explain it all. Calvinists, as far as I know, believe you can only keep your salvation (sigh) if you are an antinomian, or else you are not saved.

    The Puritans brought this disaster over with them to New England, and we all know what chaos, mayhem, and atrocities followed.

      Protestantism defines antinomianism as the denial of the law as justification’s standard which means justification has to be imputed by a perfect law-keeper. This in contrast to the new birth being justification’s standard enabling the law to be used for love in Christian living. Therefore, the notion that a Christian can actually do a loving work is deemed a false gospel; real love must be imputed to the believer perpetually with each time one returns to the same gospel that originally saved them.

      …which is why there is no love or justice in the church.

    You’re right. No real love, no real justice. I have seen it; you have seen it, and thousands more know it, but for some reason are blinded to it. Just lowly worms, good for nothing, and they are happy with it, I guess, because it is going to get them to heaven, but how they can move with those shackles around their minds and hearts, I simply do not know.
