The answer to this question depends on what the ends or goals are and what means are being used to achieve them. If the goals are good and noble, and the means we use to achieve them are also good ...
From the Machiavellian view of the end justifies the means, NO, remember civilization has a standard of law, behavior barriers that define lawful and unlawful action. Acceptable and unacceptable. The MEANS DEFINES YOUR CHARACTER, are you a productive member of society or a predator. Right and wrong are defined by our values. Doing wrong comes natural I doubt any need training to do it, but to do good, or holding one self to a higher standard of behavior to behave considerately, kindness, selflessness, self control are learned behaviors we must train ourselves to behave Godly. Should we do evil that good may come out of it? Some actions do not have a silver lining they are just wrong. We were created in Gods image, we were created to have fellowship with Him, it is what we subconsciously crave and nothing works as a substitute. It is our soul yearning to be reunited with our father, to gain His love and acceptance. The bible is the richest source of information about the creator, It admonishes us to consider our actions and shun evil and love good. This at times may seem impossible but if we humble ourselves and seek him, He will gives us what we lack through His spirit, He will make a way when there is no way, he is my healer, my provider, my protector, my joy, my savior, my soon coming king. He is not a respecter of persons and His gift is free to all.
