2. Sophie felt she was justified to help Jake cheat in order to expose him to others. Do you think it’s ever right to do wrong to prove a point?


Nicole | 18 comments No. I have seen people say over and over that you shouldn't stop someone from sinning by sinning. Or the often used phrase, two wrongs don't make a right.

Right. It is a fundamental concept of Catholic moral theology that one may not do wrong with the intent that good would result. In other words, the ends do not justify the means. A good action must involve both a good means and a good end.
