Discussion in 'Religion and Ethics' started by Mr. P, Mar 9, 2006.
Any thoughts? Think hard about this one.
But if our unrighteousness serves to show the righteousness of God, what shall we say? That God is unrighteous to inflict wrath on us? (I speak in human terms.) By no means! For then how could God judge the world? But if through my lie God's truth abounds to his glory, why am I still being condemned as a sinner? And why not do evil that good may come?--as some people slanderously charge us with saying. Their condemnation is just.
Is that a no, Jeff?
Is that The Message?
What do you mean?
I think it's the question of "do the ends justify the means?" put in a religious context.
You mean like when we dropped the A-bombs on Japan to end the war.
Kill all those people = evil. End the war = good.
Killing people isn't necessarily evil. God whiped out hundreds/thousands of Egyptians who were chasing His People across the red sea.
