Can a wrong create a good?
Question from Emily on 11/27/2012:

In the Chatachism, section 324 states, "The fact that God permits physical and even moral evil is a mystery that God illuminates by his Son Jesus Christ who died and rose to vanquish evil. Faith gives us the certainty that God would not permit an evil if he did not cause a good to come from that very evil, by ways that we shall fully know only in eternal life." Does this passage mean that a wrong can create a good?

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 12/4/2012:

Dear Emily,

The passage means that God can bring good out of evil. It does not mean that we can do evil in order to do a good.

Dr. Geraghty
