The Bigger Danger

Which is the bigger danger to the Church - legalism or antinomianism?

Luther faced both. He had the legalism of Rome to deal with. He had the antinomianism of the radical reformation, which sought to destroy all social order.

He ranted and raved against both.
He wrote hymns for us to sing, begging God for deliverance from the legalists.

Lord, keep us stedfast in Thy Word.
and curb murderous pope and turk
Who'd wrest the Kingdom from Thy Son
And set at naught all He has done.
