God, Providence, Virtue,
Proved to be
Agreeable to True Philosophy,
And to be attended with
A Truly Philosophical Evidence.
By George Turnbull, LL. D.
Be not deceived, God is not mocked, whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap.
Gal. vi. 7.
Factus a Deo mundus ut homines nascerentur; nascuntur autem homines ut Deum patrem agnoscant, ut colant, in quo justitia est: colunt ut mercedem immortalitatis accipiant: accipiunt immortalitatem, ut in aeternum Deo serviant. Videsne, quemadmodum sibi connexa sint & prima cum mediis, & media cum extremis? Inspiciantur singula: & videamus utrumne illis ratio quoque subsistat.
Lactantius, Divin. Inst. cap. 10.1

[1. ]Lactantius, Divine Institutes, bk. 7, ch. 6: “The world was made by God so that human beings should be born. Human beings are born so that they should know God the father and should worship him, wherein lies justice. They worship him so that they may gain the reward of immortality, and so may serve God in eternity. Do you not see how these are connected, the first with the intermediate, and the intermediate with the last? Let us look at each of them and let us see whether there is a reason for them being as they are.” The first three sentences closely resemble a passage in the critical edition of Divinarum institutionum, bk. 7, ch. 6. The remaining two sentences are comment on the first three.
