Antinomianism comes from two Greek words: “Anti” – against and “Nomos” – law. It is a concept and teaching that begins with, revolves around and glories in the principle that law has been abolished in every practical way for Christians. It’s true that Old Testament dietary and hygienic laws given to and observed by the Hebrews have been abolished (1 Cor. 8:8; Col. 2:14), but the moral Law embodied in the Ten Commandments and elaborated on in the Sermon on the Mount has never been abolished (Matt. 5:17-19; Rom. 7:7-14; Gal. 3:24), and are intended to influence and direct Christian life today.
