Seriatim Statement of the Doctrine.
A doctrinal statement respecting the Divine providence, 10773-10781.
Providence is the Lord's government in the heavens and on the earths, from which every good and truth is, 10773.
It extends to the most particular things, 10774.
They who think from worldly things, that the evil are honoured and become rich, and that their arts succeed, believe that providence is universal, but not particular, 10775.
Yet eminence and wealth are not real blessings, but the eternal things which are in heaven are, 10776.
That arts succeed is because it is from order that all things shall be done according to reason, and with freedom, 10777.
To leave man to do evil therefrom is to permit, 10778.
The providence of particular things is both with the evil and the good, 10779.
