Is grace a license to sin? David Martyn Lloyd-Jones said that if you don’t get that question you are not truly preaching the gospel. In fact, he said that those who accurately preach God’s grace will always be accused of being antinomian, another way of saying that they are giving people license to sin. Paul was obviously accused of this, as we gather from his response in Romans 6. Again, it is far easier for us to operate with a list of rules than with the guidance of the Holy Spirit within us.
