I had to put off reading this until this evening, but when I saw the Friday WWW title I chuckled. “You have one job. Be a good person.”
Sure thing, Mr. Wilder. Now, just what is “good” -? Is there a cup of hemlock with your name on it? 😋
All joking aside, good on you for anyone who comes across this post and asks this question. It’s a great place to start.
To be good, a moral code and the courage to follow it is required. Christianity is the one that built the West,
Christianity won’t work as a moral code. It did NOT build Western civilization, or even the U.S.A. Christians did. As Mr. Lewis pointed out, one cannot use the stairs of heaven as a short cut to the pharmacy.
Don’t believe me? Explain to your wife and offspring that, while you 100% value their irreplaceable contributions to your lifestyle and success, you’re much happier and fulfilled playing WoW and eating Pez, than caring for them."
If Christianity is not a moral code, then what is it? No points for replies of "It's a religion, doofus."
