a theory of God's plan in regard to the world held by Leibnitz (q.v.) and others. The system holds that the final aim of all things is exclusively the glorifying of God, especially of his sovereignty. They thus run the risk of bringing this sovereignty of God into opposition with his wisdom and love; for while insisting merely on the fact creavit sibi, they seem to overlook the equally important fact creavit nobis. The tendency of such a theory is to fatalism and quietism. See Van Oosterzee, Christian Dogmatics, 1, 297.
