Free eBook – The life of William Huntington, S.S.

William Huntington S.S. (2 February 1745 – 1 July 1813) was an English preacher and coalheaver. It is said (although his writings, sermons and letters do not bear that out – see examples from Huntington’s works below) that he was known for preaching that the ‘moral law’ was unnecessary, a theological view known as Antinomianism. Huntington was a strict Calvinist who believed that some were predestined to be saved and some were not. He believed that on Judgment Day he would be identified as a true prophet. His unusual, polemical preaching style and writings made him popular but brought him into conflict with other preachers throughout his life. He founded or opened chapels throughout England, many of which still survive. SOURCE: Wiki

    Indeed an interesting chap, but missed it badly with the loss of the Moral Law of God! And no real “Strict Calvinist” is antinomian!

      Btw, please allow me to put up the whole Wiki on Huntington? Not your consistent Calvinist for sure!

        Btw, it is nice to know that at the Bema-Seat of Christ, we (the believer) will receive both the Lord’s judgment of “the hidden things and darkness”, and “will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.” (1 Cor. 4: 5) Both our personal life’s and hearts, and our personal praise of God! Of course all ‘In Christ’!
