Gospel grace sounds too amazing and scandalous, and if we’re not careful, we’ll get skittish and downplay its radical nature. To make sure we are not selling it short, John Stott offers a test:
“If we are proclaiming Paul’s gospel, with it’s emphasis on the freeness of grace and the impossibility of self-salvation, we are sure to provoke the charge of antinomianism. If we do not arouse this criticism, the likelihood is that we are not preaching Paul’s gospel.”-John Stott, Romans, p. 167
So when’s the last time someone called you an antinomian?
