Turretin on God’s Will

May 31, 2009

F_TurretinNo other cause can be assigned to why the Lord has done this or that than this – because he so willed. If you ask further, why he so willed, you seek something greater and more sublime than the will of God (which cannot be found). Therefore human temerity ought to restrain itself and not to seek what is not, lest perchance it fail to find that which is.

Turretin, Institutes of Elenctic Theology, Third Topic/17thQ/VI.
