John Owen’s Polemical Lie

John Owen, a hyper-Calvinist of some repute, wrote a short book entitled A Display of Arminianism. It is in a word, a lie. I do not know if the popular Calvinist ever repented of his dastardly lies but if not, he died as a wretched liar. Some of our Neo-Reformed apologists are fond of pointing to Owen as an exemplar of Reformed thought. I believe they do so out of sheer ignorance. If not, they share in what Owen was.
