“A lie is a delusion of the mind, while evil is a delusion of the will. The sign by which one is distinguished from the other is the judgement of God Himself … that which He teaches a man is the truth; that which He leads a man to will is the good. But whatever contradicts this is entirely false, entirely evil.”
St. Nicholas Cabasilas
