...Augustine. Confessions. n.d. Web. 06 Oct. 2014. .... First Assignment Augustine is trying to answer a very important question by reading the Holly texts and he concludes that there is no evil. Nonetheless, I cannot agree with such a conclusion since the evil exists alongside with the good. Augustine provides lines concerning the way God will treat people and it is noted that he will teach his way by “forgiving all our sins” (Augustine Bk 7, Ch. 9, par. 14). It follows that sins really exist in the world since God will see them and forgive them. I believe the universe is a balanced system where good and evil are two indispensable parts. A human...
