5 Unity Of God
UNITY OF GOD
A term made use of to denote that there is but one God or self-existent Being. The unity of God is argued from his necessary existence, self-sufficiency; perfection, independence, and omnipotence; from the unity of design in the works of nature; and from there being no necessity of having more gods than one: but the Scriptures set it beyond all doubt, Deut 6:4. Ps 86:10. Is 63:10. Mk 12:29. Jn 17:3. Rom 3:30. 1 Cor 8:4,6. 1 Tim 2:5.
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.
