PART TWO EXSPOSITON OF THE CANONS Third and Fourth Heads of Doctrine OF THE CORRUPTION OP MAN, HIS CONVERSION TO GOD, AND THE MANNER THEREOF REJRCTION OF ERRORS Article 8
In the third place, we may notice once again that the Arminian employs the “big lie” technique in his attempt to discredit the truth. As is very plain from the language of the fathers in this article, this charge of the Arminians is nothing short of preposterous. Nothing could be farther from the truth than this allegation which they bring against the doctrine of the certainty of perseverance. And it seems that they almost felt that if they made their lie big enough and cunning enough, they might be able to overthrow the truth in the minds of some.

For some reason, possibly because of a faulty understanding of this accusation and of the truth over against it, there are those who are rather easily frightened out of their Reformed position by this charge.
