NCT and “The Law of Christ”

On Facebook recently, there had been an extended discussion on what is meant in Scripture by “The Law of Christ”.  The discussion has taken place in the New Covenant Grace group. Strong sentiments have expressed on what appears to be the two sides.

One side is adamant that “The Law of Christ” is not some new form of legalism, but an expression (solely?) of the indwelling Spirit.

The other side is concerned that this view may lead believers into a detachment from the Scriptures. The Written Word is our infallible guide. Our ‘inner’ guidance must be understood and governed by the revelation of the Written Word. To separate our inner Spirit’s understanding and guidance from the Spirit’s inspired word is a false antithesis. The authority of the Scriptures as viewed through the New Covenant, is not enslaving, but liberating. Through the Scriptures as the Word of God,  we are set free in Christ.

There is a right concern that we should not become Bibliolators and know the truth of the promise that “they shall all be taught of God”. But there is also the error seen in past history (some very recent) of a drift into “Quietism” and/or “Mysticism”.

I am conscious that this is hardly a fair summary of all the discussions, but there is a real concern that those who have grasped the freedom there is in the New Covenant of our Lord Jesus Christ, should divide on semantic or secondary issues.

What do you think?

West Country Reformed Seminary

Tomorrow I am due to give a Paper to the West Country Reformed Seminary.

my chosen subject is: New Covenant Theology – A Challenge or a Threat.

Welcome

Our aim is to provide a platform for studying the Scriptures to learn about the New Covenant brought in by Jesus Christ and how it relates to the Old Covenant brought to Israel through Moses. Also to discover how NCT relates to the other two main “schools of theology” – Dispensational Theology and Covenant Theology.

If this seems so much gobbly-gook to you, then hang in there, because this takes us to the heart of how we become Christians and how we may live lives that please God as Christians.
