You don’t have to be a follower of Christ to live a Christ-like life. Kindness, forgiveness, selflessness, service to others, tolerance, love — those are all things any human being should strive for.
An Atheist’s Easter Season
Michele Catalano
307

what man can accomplish without Christ, is at best, a cheap imitation or a counterfeit of the real fruit of the spirit. It’s never one to spring from agape love, but a desire (maybe springing from our ‘self’) that we can and will ‘be good’ even without God’s help. We can at best, try loving our friend. but honest love for our enemy cannot be worked out without the divine substance of a new heart and a new spirit — which can be produced only by the new birth which comes from faith in Jesus Christ.
