Antinomian Controversy

Definition

The Antinomian Controversy (1636-1638 CE) was a religious-political conflict which divided the Massachusetts Bay Colony of New England in the 17th century CE. The disagreement, also known as the Free Grace Controversy, centered on the primacy of God's grace over good deeds or as the preeminence of a Covenant of Grace over a Covenant of Works.
