‘Liberty not licence’ sums up the believer’s standing in Christ. The believer has died to the law of Moses to be married to Christ, and, as such, being no longer under the rule of the old law, he is now under the governance, headship, rule and law of Christ – which law he finds written in Scripture. The Spirit has given him a new heart to love that law and obey it out of gratitude to his Redeemer for all the grace that has been shown to him in the Lord Jesus. Liberty but not licence indeed! This, alas, is not fully appreciated by our covenant-theology friends. But, sad to say, it is also questioned – if not denied – by some new-covenant theologians. So in the five papers David Gay ‘read’ at the UK New-Covenant Theology Conference, March 2017, he explored the biblical basis for the liberty-not-licence principle of the new covenant, doing so in general, and then in particular from Galatians, Romans and John. Finally, by way of illustration, he spoke on Tobias Crisp, the arch 17th-century ‘antinomian’, the man whom covenant theologians love to hate! This kindle has a fully active TOC.
