For those into Greek and Latin, “nomos” is Greek for “law.” People who are against any kind of standards in Christianity are called antinomians.
The reason it stands out to me at this time is that it seems to reflect what is not going on in our country right now. Our government seems to regard laws as something to be acknowledged only if they fit what the official wants to do. A clear example of this is the searches being done by the TSA. I am sure you are aware of this simple statement:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated; and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched and the persons or things to be seized.When I was pulled aside and “frisked” the problem was not lack of courtesy, groping or improper searching techniques. The problem was a lack of everything mentioned in the Constitution. At least if they were profiling, there would be some sliver of probable cause.
This is antinomocracy.
