I have since come to realize that there are definitely problems with soft antinomianism going on in the church today. I wrote the original post here while still not seeing that problem. There certainly is a problem with hammering the law too heavily as well. But that isn't what I'm seeing in my circles at the moment.

"Weak on Sanctification Tshirt"
Lutherans often get accused of having no doctrine of sanctification.read more here
As hard as it is to believe, some would rather focus on their good works rather than on what Christ has done for them, putting the cart before the horse, as it were.

The description there is a wonderful read, a great blog post in itself!
Sure to be a great conversation starter at family gatherings, especially if your family gatherings contain those who think it is possible to spend too much time thinking about what Jesus has done for us.
