Are there three wills in God?
I was wondering if you thought that there were three wills of God? I affirm that God has a Decretive Will and a Preceptive Will, however, I was wondering if there was a third will. The reason I was wondering this was because I was thinking about the "callings" of people's lives. This would be a will, like God's Preceptive Will, that does not always come to past. For example, God calls me to be a missionary to China, and I disobey and I never go. Of course it was a part of God's Decretive Will that I don't go, but would this be part of His Preceptive Will or would it be a part of a different Will.
Thoughts (if this made any sense whatsoever)?
