Yes people can do "good" things, even if they are not Christians. But, it seems that those things tend to go against one's nature as opposed to going with it. Or possibly due to ulterior motives. That at least seems to be what the Bible teaches. And who am I to second guess God's Word?

God bless,


Dan that is the most insightful statement I have read on this topic.
People of all walks of life do have the ability to go against their sin nature.
That is why some have the appearance, to us at least, of being good. As humans we just cannot keep it going indefinitely. At some point our humanness catches us off guard.
