Book Description

In Romans chapter 6 the Apostle Paul takes up the issue of antinomianism – a dangerous perversion of the gospel’s teaching that has often troubled the church. The antinomian says, ‘Ah, this gospel is a wonderful message of salvation by the free grace of God. Therefore, it doesn’t matter at all how you live as a believer; you are saved once and forever.’ The Apostle shows us why some people have misused the doctrine of the grace of God in that way, and explains why Christians – ‘the servants of righteousness’ – must not live in sin or let sin reign within.

    Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones himself said that he could not start with his series on Romans until he has really understood chapter 6. This fact alone indicates that it is a very important book. When I read it, I was a Christian for 18 years, but these sermons helped me to realize definitely what it means to be a new man, to have a new nature – and to apply this fact in the struggle against the plague of my heart. This book is not for lazy, superficial Christians, or maybe right for them because Lloyd-Jones crashes the heresy of antinomianism. When you have the intention to work through the 14 volumes of the Romans series, I recommend you to start with this profound volume.
