There once was a saying (and maybe it's still around) that "The end justifies the means." That's saying that you can use any method as long as the end result is good. I don't believe that Jesus would allow sin among His people just because it gets good results. That would be like a church using strippers and a booze party to bring in those who normally wouldn't set foot in a church. Yes, they hear the gospel (hopefully), but what other message is that
church giving out with their attitude of "The end justifies the means"?

When someone is willing to use an evil means to acheive a good end, I doubt that their goal is really that good end that they claim they want.

Michael,
I do understand what you mean.

Just remember,
we are IN this world but not OF this world!

We have to live in society , we have no choice, but we also need to stand apart from those who do not profess Christ

correct.and the builders who rejected Jesus will stumble and fall.and i don,t think this means manual workers.but the people who exploit them,and when Jesus comes,it will be the oppressors who will be drowned under a a sea of water.:D

You may be building satan's kingdom, but I'm not. As for me, I will serve the Lord.

But then that's not a good end if there's some bad resulting...
