Does it matter what you believe? Or do you just have to be a “good” person? Can you still call yourself a Catholic or a Christian if you don’t actually believe the doctrine that defines what those mean?
Fr. Barron opines and discusses what it means to be a “good” or “loving” person (video below).
We measure the “goodness” of our actions by what we believe. So if we believe wrongly, then we may do good wrongly. That’s why your beliefs matter. And it’s why knowing the truth about Goodness (about God) is essential to knowing if your actions are actually good. Otherwise you’re just guessing.
