“I desire that we consider the increase of Arminianism
that makes the grace of God look after the will of men. [It] makes the sheep to keep the shepherd, and makes a mortal seed an immortal God. I desire that we may look into the belly and bowels of this Trojan Horse to see if there is any man in it, ready to open the gate of Romish tyranny, and Spanish monarchy. For Arminianism is the span of a papist, and if there comes the warmth of favor, you shall see him turn into one of those frogs that arise out of the bottomless pit. And if you mark it well, you shall see an Arminian reaching one hand to a papist, a papist to a Jesuit, a Jesuit to the Pope, and the other to the King of Spain. And these men having kindled fire in our neighbor-countries, now they brought some of it over here, to set on flame this kingdom also. Yes, let us consider and search whether these are not the men that break in on the goods, and liberties of the Commonwealth. For by this means they may make way for the taking away of our Religion, (A Religious and Worthy Speech Spoken
by Mr. Francis Rous in Parliament (London, 1641)).
