Does our evil promote the glory of God?
Some accused Paul of preaching falsehood, but he argued,
“For if the truth of God has increased through my lie to His glory, why am I also still judged as a sinner? And why not say, ‘Let us do evil that good may come’?—as we are slanderously reported and as some affirm that we say. Their condemnation is just” (Rom 3:7-8).
No doubt God’s glory increased under Paul’s preaching. If that was the case, why did some in the church judge him as a sinner? A slanderous report went out that he was teaching we can do evil that good may come.
Read his writings, and read Luke’s report of Paul’s preaching and teaching in the Book of Acts, and you will see no such thing.
Those who misrepresented him would be condemned, and justly so, even as those who slander us shall also be condemned.
