Ec 7:20 For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not. Isa 64:6 ¶ But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. We all agree that even the most wicked of men can do RELATIVE good. We all agree that the born again child of God under the leadership and power of the Holy Spirit can do good in God's sight. However, what does God require from the lost man to do "good" by His definition of "good"? 1. Is "good" defined merely by EXTERNAL conformity to God's Law - Pharisees 2. Is "good" defined by INTERNAL and EXTERNAL conformity to God's Law? Does God weigh the heart to judge the actions? 3. What is required for INTERNAL conformity to God's Law? Right heart/motive? 4. Is 1 Cor. 10:31 a command? If so, can lost people keep it? 5. Is God's standard for "good" for individual acts any different than his standard for "good" for justification if the rule of James 2:10-11 is applied? In other words, does violating one command violate all commands as a general rule and thus to keep one command is to keep all commands? What underlying principle is demanded by this rule? 6. Can an act of obedience be judged as "good" if it is not done out of "love"? Are unloving words and actions sin/evil? 7. What is God's definition of "love"?
