    Good and Evil quotes by:    

St. Augustine teaches us that there is in each man a Serpent, an Eve, and an Adam. Our senses and natural propensities are the Serpent; the excitable desire is the Eve; and reason is the Adam. Our nature tempts us perpetually; criminal desire is often excited; but sin is not completed till reason consents.

    Author: Blaise Pascal

The Scriptures teach that every regenerate person is the possessor of two natures: one, received by natural birth, which is wholly and hopelessly bad; and a new nature, received through the new birth, which is the nature of God Himself, and therefore wholly good.

    Author: C.I. Scofield

Evil is a parasite, not an original thing.

    Author: C.S. Lewis

If we do wrong and no harm comes of it, we are not thereby justified. If we did evil and good came of it, the evil would be just as evil. It is not the result of the action, but the action itself which God weighs.

    Author: Charles Spurgeon

Our best performances are so stained with sin, that it is hard to know whether they are good works or bad works.

    Author: Charles Spurgeon

We declare, upon Scriptural authority, that the human will is so desperately set on mischief, so depraved, and so inclined to everything that is evil, and so disinclined to everything that is good, that without the powerful, supernatural, irresistible influence of the Holy Spirit, no human will ever be constrained towards Christ.

    Author: Charles Spurgeon
    Source: Sermon on John 6:44.

How can a mere finite human being be sure that infinite wisdom would not tolerate certain short-range evils in order for more long-range goods that we can't foresee.

    Author: Peter Kreeft

It is a wonderful thing that here and there in this hard, uncharitable world, there should still be left a few rare souls who think no evil.

    Author: Henry Drummond
    Source: Greatest Thing in the World.

The distinctions drawn between men are commonly based on the outward appearance of goodness or badness, on the ground of moral beauty or moral deformity--is this classification scientific? Or is there a deeper distinction between the Christian and the not-a-Christian as fundamental as that between the organic and the inorganic?

    Author: Henry Drummond
    Source: Natural Law, p. 374.
