- The carnal mind the source of the objections which are raised against the Providence of God. A primary objection, making a distinction between the permission and the will of God, refuted. Angels and men, good and bad, do nought but what has been decreed by God. This proved by examples.
- All hidden movements directed to their end by the unseen but righteous instigation of God. Examples, with answers to objections.
- These objections originate in a spirit of pride and blasphemy. Objection, that there must be two contrary wills in God, refuted. Why the one simple will of God seems to us as if it were manifold.
- Objection, that God is the author of sin, refuted by examples. Augustine’s answer and admonition.
