The Bible states very clearly that salvation (being saved from sin, death and hell) is by FAITH, not a "principle." And God's word clearly states that BELIEF of the good news that Christ died for our sins is what saves us, not some "principle." Further God's word clearly states that believers are being conformed to the image of God's Son, not some "principle." And FAITH is complete dependance upon God and His word, not some "principle."
And while one using Wikipedia's definition of "antinomian" might indeed call me "antinomian" for my bible beliefs, other than the fact that I explain that keeping the law is the RESULT of salvation (not a "principle") I might fit Wikipedia's defnition with no shame for fitting its definition. But I refer to myself as a Christian, a believer who keeps the law of Moses as best I can and by the power of the Holy Spirit alone. It is He who has provided my ability to hush rage that might otherwise cause me to hate a difficult brother or sister (murder). It is He who empowers me to resist adultery. And these two should provide enough for the Holy Spirits control of me in terms of the rest of the law of Moses. And even then, I cannot say I do not sin because that would only deceive myself - I sin every day and depend on God the Holy Spirit to convict me of my sins so I can repent of them every time He points them out - I do not pretend to know all sins without His instruction.
