Oh, I see. It's not a form of moral anarchy at all. Here's the brief definition from Onelook.com:

"noun: the theological doctrine that by faith and God's grace a Christian is freed from all laws (including the moral standards of the culture)"

Dear WW: if you are feeling ambitious, try some Kant:

I did feel ambitious and read the link, which was refreshingly brief and to-the-point, although antinomianism wasn't specifically mentioned there. Free will was examined briefly. Thanks for posting the link, wwh.

this too shall pass
an antinomy (as in the Kant link) is merely a contradiction between conclusions, or an intellectual paradox; the original sense was a contradiction in law, wherein lies the connection to antinomianism.

Nom d'un pipe! I'm not the only one making typos today. Kant made me ill, but not
with antimony.

We all make typos, wwh! But thanks for this antinomianism and its cousins:

antinomianistically
antinomianistic
antiantinomianmentarianism

Dear WW: I'm sure you pride yourself on being anthophilous - a lover of flowers.
which reminds me that "anthology" has a poetic background:
anthology
n.,
pl. 3gies 5Gr anthologia, a garland, collection of short poems < anthologos, gathering flowers < anthos (see ANTHO3) + legein, to gather (see LOGIC)6 a collection of poems, stories, songs, excerpts, etc., chosen by the compiler
an[tho[log[i[cal 7an#0! l9j4i k!l8
adj.
