Freedom From the Moral Law

“The freedom from the moral law which the believer enjoys, is a freedom from an obligation to fulfill it in his own person for his justification – a freedom from its condemnation on account of imperfection of obedience.  But this is quite consistent with the eternal obligation of the moral law as a rule of life to the Christian.  Nothing can be more self-evidently certain than that, if the moral law is not a rule of life to believers, they are at liberty to disregard it’s precepts.  But the very thought of this is abominable”.

Robert Haldane, From his Commentary on Romans, P.259
