Q[21] Of The Consequences Of Human Actions By Reason Of Their Goodness And Malice
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]  

We have now to consider the consequences of human actions by reason of their goodness and malice: and under this head there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether a human action is right or sinful by reason of its being good or evil?

A[2] Whether it thereby deserves praise or blame?

A[3] Whether accordingly, it is meritorious or demeritorious?

A[4] Whether it is accordingly meritorious or demeritorious before God?
