Good without God? | Liturgy

It’s the second contention that fascinates me; that one million kiwis are morally good without God. In the liturgy we say of God, “you are the source of all life and goodness”. As Erasmus would have it, and Jung so famously reinforced: “Vocatus Atque Non Vocatus Deus Aderit – Bidden or not bidden, God is present.” It is not the registering of oneself on the census as having a religion that makes God present in one’s life. It is not the registering of oneself as “no religion” on a census that removes God’s presence from one’s life…

I suspect that Jesus, were he alive today (he is alive today!) would horrify some “religious” people (as he did in his own day) by hanging out with “non-religious” types and denouncing some who tout their religiosity.
