The Funeral of Arminianism

William Huntington wrote... My dear friends, when you hear the Bastard Calvinists, whose heads are at Zion, and their hearts at Horeb, crying out—“Such live Arminians, but do not die Arminians!” then let them shew their repentance, and works meet to prove it to be genuine. Peter’s repentance, and David’s repentance, shall be as conspicuous as their sins. The Arminian, or, as my text says, the “vile person,” if ever he be saved, his recantation shall be as public as his desperate rebellion in uttering errors against the Lord; and his repentance as public as his public stubbornness and obstinacy. If any of God’s people err, they must be restored and reclaimed, before they go hence. “They that erred in spirit shall come to understanding; and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.” They must be converted from the error of their way, or die in their deception. Those that practise hypocrisy, and utter errors against the Lord, to destroy the poor with lying words, dying so, they go down into the grave with a lie in their hand. “A deceived heart has turned such aside, and they cannot deliver their souls,” ISAIAH 44:20. Into the heavenly Jerusalem shall nothing enter that loveth and maketh a lie: and if he that loves and makes a lie is shut out, then what is to become of them whose whole practice is hypocrisy, and speaking villany, to destroy the poor with lying words, even when they speak right? “All liars,” says God, “shall have their portion in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, where the Beast and false Prophets are.” The Scriptures, my friends, cannot be broken: the counsel of the Lord shall stand firm, his word shall abide for ever. It is Yea, and Amen; not a jot of it shall fail; it shall never pass away, but stand fast to a thousand generations. Let God be true, but every man a liar.
