Free To Be?

Delivered at the 20th Annual Free Conference on Oct. 27, 2005 in St. Cloud, Minnesota, this paper discusses the more immediate theological climate of the 1960’s and 70’s within the Lutheran Church in the United States in which the theology of the Antinomian Theses of Luther and the Formula of Concord, Art. VI, had been forgotten or abandoned. Free to Be? provides the rational for publishing Don’t Tell Me That!, Solus Decalogus est Aeternus, and Only the Decalogue is Eternal.
