OPENLY PROCLAIMED

These things, therefore, are openly proclaimed for the sake of the Elect: that,
being by these means humbled and brought down to nothing, they might be
saved. The rest resist this humiliation; nay, they condemn the teaching of self
desperation; they wish to have left a little something that they may do
themselves. These secretly remain proud, and adversaries to the grace of God.
