"Goodness" is a fruit if the Spirit..NOT the pathway to heaven

So someone says:
Being the good guy, being like Jesus, means not resisting evil, but overcoming it with love.

  • That’s dumb. There’s a reason goodness is presented as a fruit of the Spirit. It’s unnatural to our experience. We can stomach goodness if it’s primarily to those we deem deserving, or those we can think of as more needy than ourselves, as if we are stooping low to help. But not the enemy. The guy who lazed around all day and showed up an hour before quitting time doesn’t deserve the same pay as the guy who worked all day in the blazing sun. But that’s exactly what God gives.
