Catholic Encyclopedia: Evil
“But we cannot say without denying the Divine omnipotence, that another equally perfect universe could not be created in which evil would have no place.”
As we see above Zaccheus, if God would willed He could create this world in which evil would have no place.
310 But why did God not create a world so perfect that no evil could exist in it?
With infinite wisdom and goodness God freely willed to create a world in a state of journeying towards its ultimate perfection, 314 through the dramas of evil and sin .
As we see above Zaccheus: God ACTIVELLY WILLED to create in this world the dramas of evil and sin and this is what He created at His cause of the fall of Adam. – 308 God is the first cause who operates in and through secondary causes:
“For God is at work in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.”
In The Mystery of Predestination by John Salza explains;
Page 113; “God, however, willed to permit Adam to reject His grace and to sin.”
1 Cor.4:7; … And what do you have that you did not receive? – Before Adam could able to commit an act of sin:
God had to infuse Adam the ability to commit an act of sin,
God had to infuse Adam the desire to commit an act of sin,
God had to cooperate with Adam in the act of sin by providing to Adam the power of operation which would enable Adam to commit the act of sin. – Without Gods cooperation in the act, we can do nothing,
308 God is the first cause of the event of our act, in both sin and salutary act.
CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Free Will explains.
“God is the author of all causes and effects, but is not the author of sin, because an action ceases to be sin if God wills it to happen. Still God is the cause of sin.
God’s omnipotent providence exercises a complete and perfect control over all events that happen, or will happen, in the universe.”
As we see above Zaccheus, plain and simple:
God is the cause of our sins.
God exercises complete and perfect control over all the events of our actions, He directs all, even evil and sin itself to the final end.
CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA Divine Providence explains;
His wisdom He so orders all events within the universe that the end for which it was created may be realized.
He directs all, even evil and sin itself, to the final end for which the universe was created.
Evil, therefore, ministers to God’s design (St. Gregory the Great, op. cit., VI, xxxii in “P.L.”,
303 The sacred books powerfully affirm God’s absolute sovereignty over the course of events.
As we see above Zaccheus: God’s will is the cause of all things, every event that happen or will happen in the universe, He directs all, even evil and sin itself to the final end, because evil and sins ministers to God’s design
