The law and the saint


Description

There is a great deal of deception in the present Church world regarding The Law. A.W. Pink explains a great deal of the divine role of Law – and it's very different than the lawless interpretation of many of the current day “church” teachers. Even in Pink's day there was already a great amount of lawlessness and deception. Pink explains:“The term Antinomian signifies one who is against the Law. There is little need for us to pause and offer proof that this is an age of lawlessness. In every sphere of life the sad fact confronts us. In the well-nigh total absence of any real discipline in the majority of the churches, we see the principle exemplified. Not more than two generations ago, tens of thousands, of the loose-living members whose names are now retained on the membership rolls, would have been dis-fellowshipped. It is the same in the great majority of our homes. With comparatively rare exceptions, wives are no longer in subjection to their husbands (Eph. 5:22,24); and as for obeying them (1 Pet. 3:1,2,5,6), why, the majority of women demand that such a hateful word be stricken from the marriage ceremony. And what of conditions in the world? The abounding marital unfaithfulness, Sunday trading, banditry, and a dozen other things that might be mentioned, all bear witness to the frightful wave of lawlessness which is flowing over the country.”
