< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]   A[5]   A[6]  

We must how consider the vices opposed to charity: (1) hatred, which is opposed to love; (2) sloth and envy, which are opposed to the joy of charity; (3) discord and schism, which are contrary to peace; (4) offense and scandal, which are contrary to beneficence and fraternal correction.

Under the first head there are six points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether it is possible to hate God?

A[2] Whether hatred of God is the greatest of sins?

A[3] Whether hatred of one's neighbor is always a sin?

A[4] Whether it is the greatest of all sins against our neighbor?

A[5] Whether it is a capital sin?

A[6] From what capital sin does it arise?
