But if our unrighteousness brings out God's righteousness more clearly,1 what shall we say? That God is unjust in bringing his wrath on us? (I am using a human argument.)26
Certainly not! If that were so, how could God judge the world?37
Someone might argue, "If my falsehood enhances God's truthfulness and so increases his glory,4 why am I still condemned as a sinner?"58
Why not say--as we are being slanderously reported as saying and as some claim that we say--"Let us do evil that good may result"?6 Their condemnation is deserved.
