Romans 3:5 - 8
ESV - 5 But if our unrighteousness serves to show the righteousness of God, what shall we say? That God is unrighteous to inflict wrath on us? ( I speak in a human way.) 6 By no means! For then how could God judge the world?

This is like saying, "Since God will get glory out of my evil (like he did with Pharaoh through Moses) or use my evil for good (like he did with Judas) isn't it good for me to do evil?" or "How can God judge me for it? Somebody had to betray Jesus." To this Paul says certainly not! Just because God used your evil for good, it does not excuse your doing evil. Pharaoh was not concerned with God's glory, nor was Judas concerned with bringing about salvation through the sacrifice of Christ. They had their own selfish and sinful intent and will be justly judged as so. While it is true that someone had to betray Jesus, it didn't have to be Judas, it had to be someone with a wicked heart who was destined to die in sin, which consequently Judas proved to be.
