Federal Vision, Legalism, Antinomianism and Anglo-Catholicism

Wes White said...

Legalism and antinomianism are usually two sides of the same coin. Jesus said to the Pharisees, "You give a tenth of your mint, dill, and cumin, but you have neglected the weighter matters of the law, mercy, justice, and faithfulness." When the focus is on the rituals, then you end up losing the heart matters of the law, which is really antinomianism. Thus, you find that the FV is extremely hostile to careful searching of the heart to see where your sins are.

Yes, good works are emphasized, but the good works generally are things like kissing relics, saying hail Marys, attending Church, and not committing mortal sin.

  Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;

    Answer. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.

1662 Book of Common Prayer
