It designates the certain destiny of all things regulated by the decrees of God according to the moral necessity of the best. 24 On these already established grounds, a new argument is grafted, a purely practical argument.

The movements of the heart cannot be foreseen in the same way as the movements of bodies and of stars.

(3) Finally, in his creative activity, God does not choose free acts but certain situations on the basis of which free acts can be produced.
