Thomas Aquinas: Power and Goodness

Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274)

Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274)

God’s power is His goodness: hence He cannot use His power otherwise than well. But it is not so with men. Consequently it is not enough for man’s happiness, that he become like God in power, unless he become like Him in goodness also.

— Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica Part 2a, Question 2, Article 4, Reply to Objection 1
