Christians are saved by grace, but we’re also called to live a life in Christ. This week we’re joined by the Guestcast, Brittney and Jake, to talk about criticalism and carefreeism, or more formally known as legalism and antinomianism. By definition, legalism in Christianity is the belief that obedience to the law or a set of rules will gain favor with God with a misunderstanding of His grace, while antinomianism is the teaching that Christians are under no obligation to obey the laws of ethics or morality. We dig deeper into each extreme, their differences and also discuss the ‘middle way,’ or balance, to finding our best life with Christ.
Brittney Dagneau lives with her husband, Isaac, and daughter, Primrose, in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. When Brittney isn’t serving at her local church, she’s playing music, hanging out with her family and friends, and cooking something delicious.
Jake Lowell is currently a student at Trinity Western University and has been involved in pastoral leadership with youth and young adult ministries. He lives in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia and enjoys music (in and outside the church), church ministry, and good community.
