The True Bonds of Christian Freedom sets forth the place of the law in the Christian life. Samuel Bolton (1606-1654), successively minister of three London parishes before becoming Master of Christ's College, expounds the nature of Christian liberty and then clearly sets the bounds of that liberty in answer to the following six questions:
Does our being made free by Christ free us from the law?
Does our being made free by Christ deliver us from all punishments or chastisements for sin?
Is it consistent with Christian freedom to be under obligation to perform duties because God has commanded them?
May Christ's freemen come into bondage again through sin?
Is it consistent with Christian freedom to perform duties out of respect for the recompense of the reward?
Does the freedom of a Christian free him from all obedience to men?
The True Bounds of Christian Freedom is a clear, scriptural exposition and one of the few works currently available which shows the danger of Antinomianism, while also avoiding legalism.
