Headword: *kakw=n
Adler number: kappa,176
Translated headword: of evils
Vetting Status: high
God is not responsible of [ = for] evils.[1] We properly call evils not what some ordinary people are wont to call evil, but vice and licentiousness and the other kinds of lawlessness which we venture of our own free will. For we are responsible for these, not God who prescribed the opposite by his law.
