Fandango’s Provocative Question Is there really such a thing as a necessary evil, or is it just a way for us to rationalize or justify doing something bad?
As defined by the Church, evil is an absence of God.
The absence of God is a result of our free will. In this life, most of us try, fall, get up again, try again, fall, get up! That is life. Some give up totally; despair. Evil is not necessary just a result of expressing our own will above God’s Will. We are all sinners, and yes, we try to make excuses to justify our wrong choices.
