But it is time to come to the essential flaw in the work on Eisenman and Wise: The basic trouble is that they have bought the tragic mistake of Martin Luther, who thought Paul meant we can violate the law freely with impunity. So Eisenman and Wise call Paul's thought "antinomian" (p. 10).
Luther really was antinomian, Paul was not: Cf. Luther's Epistle of August 1 1521 (Luther's Works, American Edition 48. 282: "Be a sinner and sin boldly, but believe and rejoice in Christ even more boldly. . . . No sin will separate us from the Lamb, even though we commit fornication and murder a thousand times a day."
Like a Trojan Horse, the article starts off in one direction, but once inside the gates it reveals it's actual agenda....
What a peculiar article. It damns the Dead Sea Scrolls as extra-Scriptural (rightly, since they are not the Received Text, as El Cid noted), but ultimately comes to this conclusion for the wrong reason (somehow it's Luther's fault -- again.)
1947 was a very peculiar year. Lots of strange "sightings" going on all over the place. Lots of false leads.
"Like a Trojan Horse, the article starts off in one direction, but once inside the gates it reveals it's actual agenda." It's that time, don'tchaknow. The servants to antiChrist will be coming out of the woodwork, even challenging American democrats for the lead.
