To know goods, whether they are goods or evils, is of doctrine, and is among its truths, but to do goods or evils is of the life; this is said, therefore, of those who primarily regard the truths of doctrine, and not the goods of life (n. 73). By "the evil" in the spiritual sense, are not meant the evil but evils, because this sense is abstracted from persons.
