Emotional Antinomianism

Napoleon

Every human love, at its height, has a tendency to claim for itself a divine authority. Its voice tends to sound as if it were the Will of God Himself. It tells us not to count the cost, it demands of us a total commitment, it attempts to override all other claims and insinuates that any action which is sincerely done “for love’s sake” is thereby lawful and even meritorious.

C.S. Lewis
The Four Loves (1960)
