I’ll start out by saying that Christian religious figures are so often misquoted and represented that I wouldn’t trust this articles claims without checking.
But I want to ask what is good to an Atheist? Separated from any traditional value system or faith, “good” can mean all sorts of things.
Mao, Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot all thought they were doing “good” according to their worldview.
So for a person to tell an Atheist “just do good”, I’m worried what their idea of good will be.
Isn’t that where totalitarian dystopias come from?
I waited for a Catholic source before posting. This is all over the internet.
I don’t think that the word “just” was there.
What if an atheist did something, not knowing or being able to know it was good, but a Christian thought the act was good?
