      Doing Evil That Good May Come. Some accused Paul of teaching, “Let us do evil that good may come.” He called the accusation “slander” and asserted that the “condemnation” of his accusers was “just” (Romans ). The position that an otherwise sinful act is justified by a good result is simply advocating, “Let us do evil that.   And perfection can be a good thing: After all, that drive can push people to do great things. But it has a dark side, too. The challenge of "perfection" .

    If it be not now, yet it come-the readiness is all. Since no man of aught he leaves knows, what isn’t to leave bedtimes? Let be” (Shakespeare, , ). After finally completing his goal, and killing Claudius, Hamlet dies as well. This essay has illustrated how Marlowe and Shakespeare used the theme of the good versus evil, how it. 1 O LORD, I have come to you for protection; don’t let me be disgraced. Save me, for you do what is right. 2 Turn your ear to listen to me; rescue me quickly. Be my rock of protection, a fortress where I will be safe. 3 You are my rock and my fortress. For the honor of your name, lead me out of this danger. 4 Pull me from the trap my enemies set for me, for I find protection in you alone. 5.

    Never do evil that good may come of it. This page is about the saying "Never do evil that good may come of it". Possible meaning: Do not do something bad to achieve something good. Note: evil (noun) = something very bad; sin; extreme wickedness | Conflicting proverb: "The end justifies the means.".   God wants us to resist our bad tendencies. (Proverbs ) So he teaches us how to avoid doing wrong and how to find real present, though, we cannot imitate God’s love perfectly. —Read Psalm Although evil abounds now, God is permitting it for a limited time to allow all to see its sad consequences.2 Peter

Romans English Standard Version (ESV). 8 And why not do evil that good may come?—as some people slanderously charge us with saying. Their condemnation is just. Let us not do evil so that good may come (a statement which we are falsely said by some to have made), because such behaviour will have its right punishment.

As Catholics, we are blessed to have such clear guidance when it comes to the thorny issues of the day. Why not (as we are slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say), "Let us do evil, that good may come?" Those who say so are justly condemned.

Young's Literal Translation and not, as we are evil spoken of, and as certain affirm us to say -- 'We may do the evil things, that the good ones may come?' whose judgment is righteous. Let Us Do Let us not do evil that good may come book, That Good May Come.

whose damnation is just. I was listening to Alexander Scourby read the King James Bible today. “And why not do evil that good may come?” — Romans a. Or, to put it another way, “Do the ends justify the means?” Or, to put it in more biblical terms, “Should we compromise what we know is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent, and worthy of praise if we think the result may be something good?”.

This saying struck me as rather odd, since it implied that lying to save a murderer from the judgment of the rightful authorities was commendable, which would be in opposition, I would think, to Paul’s saying in Romans that those who say, “Let us do evil that good may result,” deserve condemnation rather than commendation.

2 Timothy ESV / helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful. But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty.

For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit.

Let us look at some situations where evil paved the way for greater good. The Fall of Humankind. The first example of good coming from evil would be the Fall of humanity. We find this recorded in the book of Genesis. God had created a perfect universe. He had placed a perfect couple into a perfect world and had given them a perfect life.

20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter. It seems pretty clear that Isaiah is denouncing one of the many deceptions of his day.

Then lets go to 2 Timothy were we are warned about the perils of the last days. Let us do evil, that good may come, is oftener in the heart than in the mouth of sinners; for few thus justify themselves in their wicked ways.

The believer knows that duty belongs to him, and events to God; and that he must not commit any sin, or speak one falsehood, upon the hope, or even assurance, that God may thereby glorify himself.

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. Ecclesiastes ESV / 41 helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come and the years draw near of.

I'm going to argue for the existence of God from the premise that moral good and evil really exist. They are not simply a matter of personal taste.

Not merely substitutes for "I like" and "I don’t like." Before I begin, let's get one misunderstanding out of the way. My argument does not mean that atheists can't be moral. He who does evil that good may come, pays a toll to the devil to let him into heaven. and A. Hare, Guesses at Truth, p.

* * his providence Out of our evil seek to bring forth good. John Milton, Paradise Lost (; ), Book I, line Das Leben ist der Güter höchstes nicht Der Uebel grösstes aber ist die Schuld.

“Let us do evil that good may come.” Apparently, some of the Apostles were being accused of saying such a statement, to Paul’s disgust. It is so despicable in the mind of Paul to think that good can come from a man’s sins, or to think that sin becomes somehow justifiable when its result is the furtherance of the Gospel.

- Evil must never be done that good may come of it. This is the teaching of Holy Scripture and of the Catholic Church. ‘Let us not do evil,’ says St. Paul, ‘that there may come good’ (Rom. And why not say (as we are slanderously reported and as some claim that we say), “Let us do evil that good may come”.

Their condemnation is just. 1 Peter Verse Concepts. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Matthew “It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till.

What weather they shall have is not ours to. This is a great struggle in our day since we live in such evil times, surrounded by a culture that is sinful and evil. Paul wrote “Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.” Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God.

I .Abrahamic religions Bahá'í Faith. The Bahá'í Faith asserts that evil is non-existent and that it is a concept for the lacking of good, just as cold is the state of no heat, darkness is the state of no light, forgetfulness the lacking of memory, ignorance the lacking of knowledge.

All of these are states of lacking and have no real existence. Thus, evil does not exist, and is relative to man. Hasten to do good; restrain your mind from evil. He who is slow in doing good, his mind delights in evil. Should a person commit evil, let him not do it again and again.

Let him not find pleasure therein, for painful is the accumulation of evil. Should a person do good, let him do it again and again.
