J. L. Dagg (1794–1884) on God's Will of Precept

"Besides God's will of purpose, we have seen that he has a will of precept. According to the latter, he commands all men everywhere to repent; he requires all to believe in Jesus Christ; and it is his will that all men should honor the Son. To all who obey his will in these particulars, he gives the promise of eternal life. The precept and the promise are both included in the revealed will of God. It is the revealed will of God that the gospel should be preached to every creature, and that every creature who hears should believe, and that all who believe shall receive life everlasting."
J. L. Dagg, Manual of Theology (Harrisonburg, VA.: Gano Books, 1990), 325.
