Had God kept from being made those who through His goodness were to have existence, but who by their own choice were to become evil, then evil would have prevailed over the goodness of God. Thus, all things which God makes He makes good, but each one becomes good or evil by his own choice. So, even if the Lord did say: ‘It were better for him if that man had not been born,’ He did not say so in deprecation of His own creature, but in deprecation of that creature’s choice and rashness.
