The Antinomian Distaste for the Particularity of the Old Testament (Rev. David P. Ramirez)

Rev. David P. Ramirez
Rev. Ramirez will address the antinomian uncomfortableness with particularity. Using the Old Testament as a prime example, he will show the inability of antinomianism to adequately wrestle with the specificity of the Word of God. This deficiency in preaching and teaching not only endangers the proclamation of the Law, but the Gospel of Jesus Christ itself.
