Antinominans and Libertines

A great quote over at Gottesdienst on the use of the law in preaching from Chemnitz:

The Antinomians because in Matt. 11:13 is says that "the Law was until John," contend that the teaching of the Decalog has no place under the new covenant.  The Libertines say that believers "are not under the Law," Gal. 5:18, and therefore they have the idea that believers ought not to learn from the Law concerning the good works in which they should walk, but rather let each do as the Spirit suggest to him (as they figure it out for themselves).   - Loci Theologici, trans. by JAO Preus, Vol. II. p.332
