Summa Theologica by St. Thomas Aquinas
FS: Treatise On Habits In Particular
Q[78] Of That Cause Of Sin Which Is Malice
< previous   Prologue   next >

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

We must now consider the cause of sin on the part of the will, viz. malice: and under this head there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether it is possible for anyone to sin through certain malice, i. e. purposely?

A[2] Whether everyone that sins through habit, sins through certain malice?

A[3] Whether every one that sins through certain malice, sins through habit?

A[4] Whether it is more grievous to sin through certain malice, than through passion?
