The God I'm talking about hates the "religion" you're talking about infinitely more than you do.
You are being very decent to me, "good" if you will, in this thread so it is with some regret that I must disappoint you further.
The reason Sloth does not agree with my above post has everything to do with theology. However your theology free identification as a Catholic is very very common =] Actually there's a whole satanic movement in protestantism that also strives to be theology free called the "emergent church". Identification with the gospel of Jesus Christ on the other hand is by definition a theological statement and one with clearly identifiable parameters set by God Himself outside of which there is no righteousness.
This is the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ the apostle Paul warned the Corinthians not to be led astray from by the serpent like he did mother Eve. The Roman Catholic Church is the, I do mean THEEE textbook, THEEE divine dictionary definition of abandoning the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ and teaching as doctrines the traditions of men. Doctrines of demons I might add.
What does this have to do with this thread? Everything. The RCC teaches, since Vat.II, that there is divine truth in all religions and shoot, actually divine good in their members. Peaceable islamists for instance who pursue God to the best of their ability with the light that they have may indeed receive the grace of Christ for their effort despite overtly denying everything He said about Himself. People of all religions should cooperate to bring a greater state of peace, tranquility and prosperity to the world. See? Now don't you like that better than what you'll call my version of "good"? Of course you do. Because despite your being cordial to me here, which I do appreciate, you are an unbeliever with no desire to see the risen Christ of God glorified. Your desire is to see man, you, made more comfortable and you perceive "organized religion", practiced non theologically of course, as a means to that end.
That word, thought or deed is formally "good" insofar as it conforms to the law and character of the creator God who is THE definer and sovereign ruler of absolutely everything. That is not the same as that word, thought or deed which is acceptable to God which is only possible if carried out in self conscious submission to the living risen Christ. I say again. For the 10,000th time. EPISTEMOLOGY IS EVERYTHING. Until we know HOW we know anything at all, questions of WHAT we know about anything at all are meaningless.
The reason I opened my eyes this morning and the reason for everything else I am or have is to see the glory of my beloved Lord shed abroad in the earth. Any other reason is sin from which no righteousness can be spawned.
