Does the end justify the means?

Can it sometimes be right to use a bad means to achieve a good end? Does the end justify the means? What do you think?

Yes, the end does justify the means

    Many today in the world do things that are bad and then justify their actions with the “good results”. The question, as it always should be, does God approve of this explanatory theory?

    it does and it doesnt.. it depends on the situation, on the people and time.

    Because the means change you as a person.

    The end does not justify the means because only the present moment exists
