Antinomians fallaciously classify repentance from sin as “works righteousness,” “works based salvation,” and “justification by works of the law.”

Antinomians reason this way, “We are justified by faith and not by works of the law. Therefore, we do not need to repent of our sins or repent of breaking God’s law, but only need to repent of our unbelief and repent of trusting in our self-righteousness and believe the gospel.”

This Antinomian theology is also known as “Easy Believism.” They teach that all you have to do to be saved is believe, you do not need to repent of your sins, and so long as you believe you are saved even though you continue in sin. No amount of sin can send you to hell, or forfeit your salvation, so long as you trust that Christ died for you.

This is, in reality, nothing more than the devil’s faith spoken of in James and turns the atonement into nothing more than a license to sin.

There is no salvation without repentance. No matter how much a person says that they “believe” and that they have “faith,” if they have not repented of their sins, they have not yet experienced biblical saving faith. It is possible for a person to “believe in Jesus” and still go to hell. I believed long before I repented. If God forgave without repentance, salvation would be nothing more than a license to sin.
