I bought vol. 6("The Death fo Christ") of the Works of John Owen recently and have enjoyed much of it. The last section in the book contains "A Dissertation On Divine Justice." I was wondering if anyone else has read this.(Well I'm sure someone has but anyone here) In it, Owen refutes the idea that God could pardon sin by a mere act of the will adn without satisfaction to his justice. Owens opponents are both heretics and some very notable orthodox men (William Twisse and Samuel Rutherford). Owen quotes from Maccovius in support of his position. My own inclination is to simply say that nothing could have happened aside from what did happen and to just leave it at that. However, I would appreciate any comments.
