St. Maximos the Confessor: Nothing created by God is evil. . . .

St. Maximos the Confessor 3“Nothing created by God is evil. It is not food that is evil but gluttony, not the begetting of children but unchastity, not material things but avarice, not esteem but self-esteem. It is only the misuse of things that is evil, not the things themselves.”

–St. Maximos the Confessor
