8 And [kai] not [me] rather, (as [kathos] we be
slanderously reported [blasphemeo], and [kai] as [kathos] some [tis] affirm [phemi] that we [hemas] say [lego],) [hoti] Let us do [poieo] evil [kakos], that [hina] good [agathos] may come [erchomai]? whose [hos] damnation [krima] is [esti] just [endikos]. KJV-Interlinear
8 And why
not do evil that good may come?—as some people slanderously charge us with
saying. Their condemnation is just. ESV
Those who cross the line into sin, justify their actions and beliefs, by claiming that God is glorified as a result of their acts, therefore making their acts of sin, as noble and right.
A cute play on words and reasoning, which existed in Pauls day, and was even turned into a prominent religion several centuries later when Islam came into existence, with its justification of sin as a noble task to the glory of their god, exclaiming god is great as they carried out their acts of violence and crime.
When you believe that a god grants you the right to do as you please, then all morals of society break down and jungle rules take over. Chaos and tyranny then rule and destruction and atrocities eventually become the norm. For those who are the victims, then suffering becomes horrendous. For those who are the predators, then evil becomes the standard.
However, this is not the rule of God, nor the basis of His glory.
God is perfect and God is without taint. All evil is condemned and never allowed in the spiritual plan of God.
Gods glory originates from His divine perfection.
Evil is a slander and a lie and a deceit. It depends on all things false, in order to succeed. And its success depends on the suffering of others.
But eventually all evil comes face to face with its accuser, which is truth, and evil is condemned and destroyed.
And, its condemnation is true and right and just.
