William Cunningham (1805–1861) on God's Preceptive Will

Many of the events that take place, -- such as the sinful actions of men, -- are opposed to, or inconsistent with, His will as revealed in His law, which is an undoubted indication of what He wished or desired that men should do.
William Cunningham, Historical Theology, 2 vols. (Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 1994), 2:452.

Cunningham, another high or strict Calvinist, does not hesitate to refer to God's revealed or preceptive will as something God wishes or desires that men should do. In his view, God's revealed will is an "undoubted indication" of that.
