Anti-nomianism

Discipline: Philosophy

View of certain Christians that the duties of a Christian are not to be circumscribed by obedience to a moral law or set of laws.

More widely, the view that justification is by faith rather than by obedience to such laws. More widely still, any view that seeks to justify the actions of certain agents as superior to - and properly to be exempt from - the requirements of law, whether moral or legal. (Not connected in sense with 'antinomy', meaning 'contradiction.')
