Can you be good without God? | Andy Bannister

Can we be good without God? What an outrageous question! Are Christians really implying that atheists can’t be good people? Maybe the question is not, “Can you be good?” Maybe the question is, “Can “good” actually exist if God doesn’t?” And besides, what if true religion has very little to do with being good? We explore all these questions in episode #8 of Short Answers.
