26 Wisdom Of God


Is that grand attribute of his nature by which he knows and orders all things for the promotion of his glory and the good of his creatures. This appears in all the works of his hands, Ps 104:24; in the dispensations of his providence, Ps 97:1,2; in the work of redemption, Eph 3:10; in the government and preservation of his church in all ages, Ps 107:7. This doctrine should teach us admiration, Rev 15:3,4; trust and confidence, Ps 9:10; prayer, Prov 3:5,6; submission, Heb 12:9; praise, Ps 103:1-4.

Charles Buck (1771-1815) was an English Independent minister, best known for the publication of his “Theological Dictionary”. According to the “Dictionary of National Biography”, a Particular Baptist minister named John C. Ryland (1723-1792) assisted Buck by writing many of the articles for the aforementioned publication. One may conclude, based not only Buck’s admiration for his friend Ryland, but also on the entries in his Theological Dictionary, that he stood head and shoulders with the High-Calvinists of his day.
