Are You a Good Person?

Living Waters presents: Are You A Good Person? Featuring Mr. Nice Guy Meet Mr. Nice Guy. You think you are nice? This guy is REALLY nice. Mr. Nice Guy: Well, I try to do
what is right. He is so nice that if good people get to Heaven, he will be the first in line! Mr. Nice Guy: Aw, shucks. So, Mr. Nice Guy, have you kept the Ten
Commandments? Mr. Nice Guy: Pretty much. Do you mind if we take a look at them
and maybe see how nice you really are? Mr. Nice Guy: Uh…Okay. Great! Here is one: “You shall not lie.” Mr. Nice Guy, have you ever told a lie? Mr. Nice Guy: Well, yeah. Who has not? What do you call somebody who tells lies? Mr. Nice Guy: A liar. Alright. How about another commandment? “You shall not steal.” Have you ever stolen anything, even once? Mr. Nice Guy: Nope! But… you just told me you are a liar. Mr. Nice Guy: Well, I did steal some candy once
when I was a kid. And what do you call someone who steals? Mr. Nice Guy: A thief. Alright. Let us try another one. “You shall not commit adultery.” Oh, that is easy. I would never cheat on my wife. [Music] Woman: Hi handsome. Mr. Nice Guy: Oh baby! [Narrator clears throat] Jesus said if you even look at a woman with lust, you have already committed adultery with her in your heart. Mr. Nice Guy: Oh…um, right. One more. “You shall not take the name of the LORD
your God in vain.” Have you ever used God’s name to curse? [Car crashes] Mr. Nice Guy: Oh my (beep)! That, Mr. Nice Guy is called blasphemy. God gave you life and breath and everything you have! And you have dragged His name through the dirt. So, by your own admission… …you are a liar, a thief, a blasphemer, and an adulterer at heart. And that is just four of the Ten Commandments. Mr. Nice Guy: Okay okay, so I am not perfect. Actually, it is worse than that. Suppose we could put a chip in your brain
that would record all your private thoughts for an entire week and then play
those thoughts on a giant movie screen for all your friends and family to see. [Woman faints] Mr. Nice Guy: That would be embarrassing! Yeah, I know. The Bible says God knows everything,
even the secret thoughts of your heart. Mr. Nice Guy: Well… [Scribbles on chalk board] …compared to some people I am a saint. [Heavenly choir sings] That is true. But the standard is
God’s law, not other people. [Chalkboard crashes] [Light bulb fails] Besides, even if you sinned just five times a day in one year… that is one thousand eight hundred and twenty-five (1825) sins. And if you live to be seventy years old… …you will have broken God’s law over one hundred and twenty-seven thousand (127000) times! You will have to answer for every sin
on Judgement Day, when the Bible says, “Each of us will give
an account of himself to God (Romans 14:12).” [Mr. Nice Guy gulps] Mr. Nice Guy: But… God will forgive me. Right? Well, let us try that in court. Criminal: I know I keep breaking the law, but
can you, you know, let it slide? Only a corrupt judge would buy (do) that. A GOOD judge would say… [Slams his gavel] Good Judge: Justice demands
that you pay for your crimes. [Criminal gulps] God is not a corrupt judge. He is a holy, righteous judge. He hates sin! Jesus warned that on Judgement Day, everyone who had sinned against God will justly end up in a terrible place called Hell. [People screaming] And there will be no escape for all eternity. Mr. Nice Guy: Well, then, how can ANYBODY get to Heaven? There is only one way. God loved the world so much that He sent His Son, Jesus, to live a perfect life. He never sinned, not even once. Then, Jesus offered to take
the punishment for guilty sinners. He was whipped, and beaten… …and nailed to a cross, and died. so that justice would be served
and sinners could go free! Then, Jesus rose from the grave and defeated death! You can not earn eternal life. It is God’s gift… …to everyone who will humble themselves
and come to Jesus. He will forgive you, [Shackles fall] wash you clean, and give you a new heart with new desires The Bible says, “…if anyone is in Christ, he
is a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17).” So stop living for yourself. Turn from your sins and come to Jesus. Then, read your Bible and obey it. Find a good church to help you grow. And then go out and tell
other people the good news! [Music] For more information visit: Kirk Cameron: Each week we send out a free ministry

100 thoughts on “Are You a Good Person?

  1. I am a good person. I don't smoke or drink (I once drank when I was 12 years old, but it was only a one time thing) or curse or do drugs (I did drugs when I was 17 years old and it made me sick at 20 years old) or kill people. I never killed anybody, well, except for bugs. And people have told me that I'm sneaky. And I always reply with, "I've been called worse."

  2. How ignorant we are of the danger of this universal sickness called, "Sin". And how only Jesus Christ offers a way out of it. Our slavery to that fallen carnal nature. We have to educate children on "Moral Science". No one has to teach a child how to lie. No one has to teach a child how to steal or be angry or lustful. Its natural and inherent in every human being's mind once they're born in the flesh. We are a slave to that carnal animalistic instinct deep inside. What is born in the flesh is spiritually dead.

    Romans 8:7 says ," The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so".

    But once you are born again in the Spirit, you are conscious of sin and there is a wrestling of the old and new self within the recesses of the mind. The gospel is of continual repentance. It is about denying ourself and living in complete submission to what the Word Of God speaks.

    Matthew 16:24
    Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.

    Romans 12:2
    Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is his good, pleasing and perfect will

    Philippians 4:8
    Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things

    2 Timothy 1:7
    For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self discipline

    Jeremiah 33:3
    Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.
    Proverbs 28:26
    Those who trust in themselves are fools, but those who walk in wisdom are kept safe.

    Proverbs 4:23
    Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
    Ephesians 4:22-32
    You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

    Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body. “In your anger do not sin”.Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold. Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need.

    Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
    1 John 1:8
    If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.

    Colossians 3:2-5
    Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your[a] life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

    Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.

    Romans 1:28
    Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.

  3. I love this vdeo
    I use to think each of the things this vdeo says
    Im afraid of death and afterlife
    I'm a muslim
    Jesus (may peace be upon him) is a beloved prophet of Lord of the Universe for us.
    But everything the vdeo says, the 10 commandments, the judgement day, the hell n heaven, most of them are same as our belief.

    ? ? I'm a sinner too
    Still trying to improve myself
    Thank you so much

  4. I find it ridiculous that this man in the video will have the same fate after death as Adolf Hitler or Joseph Stalin. It's not "justice". God is unfair and immoral. He acts like a two year old throwing a temper tantrum.

  5. Joe average is still a good person, so even if you are religious, you should never call someone a bad person who should go to hell, just because they have made mistakes before!!

  6. A simple lapse in judgment, saying even the most trivial lie, "Ah, your dress isn't that bad, sweetie," will be enough to land you in the fire slammer of hell for the rest of eternity. Being attracted to how someone looks (if you're married) is enough to land you in the fire slammer. Stealing as a kid: it truly isn't right, but your punishment for it will last FOREVER, not even mentioning the fact that as kids, most people have questionable control over their actions. Oh, and simply saying God is pretty bad so don't do that. God is a righteous judge who hates sin, so obviously torturing you forever is acceptable. The narrator then goes on, however, to discredit this statement by saying that believing in God (or "following Jesus") will give you the eternal afterlife — so what is it? Is living a life free of sin the important part, or is it believing in God the important part?

  7. There is no reason for me to believe in any story that just was made up. Nobody can prove that a guy named Jesus is what the Bible is saying he is. But if you want a placebo that is working and your gullable, then I guess it works in an energetic way. I believe in what I experience to be real, not because someone explained in a youtube video that Jesus is this or that. If only it was that easy.

  8. The final place after judgement day is lake of fire for those who die in their sins and never received Jesus.The gulf between hell and paradise is wide

  9. Following some laws set out by a bunch of old men 2000 or so years ago is VERY, VERY different from being a good person. Being a good person is about doing what's right – without witness, without hope and without reward. I am atheist and I could probably only name a couple of the Ten Commandments off the top of my head, but I like to think I'm a good person and I'm sure a lot of people would back me up on that (hopefully). It doesn't matter what religion you are or who you worship or what race you are or what gender you're attracted to – all that matters is that you always try to nice, but never, NEVER, fail to be kind.

  10. When Ray Comfort goes on his mission he asks these same 4 questions: "Have you ever lied?" "Have you ever stolen something?", "Have you ever looked with lust?".
    To tell Ray the truth, if a person answers "yes" to just only one of the above then the sin questioning stops right there. Because just one sin is enough to get you into trouble with God (James 2:10). Everybody has broken at least one of these ten commandments.

  11. I need to be good and fallow all of the rules I don't wanna go to hell right? I have been doing some bad habitats but I need to make my family, god, and myself proud I'm an angel right? ♡ I believe in God also! ?

  12. How can you prove that God is real? Just because someone wrote something in a book ( The Holy Bible ) about God doesn't mean that it's true. There is nothing supernatural in life.

  13. KJV Mark 10:
    And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?
    And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
    Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
    And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.
    Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
    And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.
    And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
    And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
    It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
    And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?
    And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
    Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.
    And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,
    But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
    But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.

  14. I think religion was an attempt to create a worldwide set of laws/natural human rights, with an end goal of controlling masses, but that it's been executed in a crappy manner with poor diplomacy.

  15. I feel like religion is for those who don't feel strong enough to be a decent human out of their own accords. And also that it's highly abused by people doing somewhat bad things to feel less guilty, and convince themselves they're better than they may actually be.

  16. This video is basically saying that every child that dies as a child goes to Hell. Every child steals, lies, and lusts. Lust is actually very natural. Nothing we can do to change that, but it's what you do with that lust that makes the difference. If you choose not to act on it, you're ok. If you choose to act on it, then you're in the wrong if you're already in a committed relationship with someone else.

  17. I am amazed at how many people actually thank me for telling them the Gospel message, the bad news, then the good news. Many say they have never heard this before. I have always expected people to get angry at me or to start arguing with me, but that actually only happens occasionally. In heaven, it will be realized how many were touched by the Gospel message. We will never all of those know who responded to this message until we are on the other side.

  18. You won't go to heaven by being a good person. Jesus tells us this clearly " I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the father but by me" the scriptures also tells us " if we say we have no sin we deceive ourselves and the truth ( Jesus) is not in us.

  19. Being a good person isn't based off of religion, this "come to jesus" stuff is a bit ridiculous if I say so myself.
    I am not belittling or insulting religion, but religion does not define what a good person is vs a bad person.
    A good person is someone that has compassion for others, and shows the good things while keeping the bad things to themselves. A good person does good things even at the cost of their benefit in exchange for the leisure of others, this can be shown through something simple; like giving up your seat on the bus for another person. A good person is not dependent on whether you believe in jesus/god, that's just stupid.

  20. Really just a religious video, whether or not you're a good person doesn't just stem from what some guy wrote four thousand years ago or something like that. I mean for all we know a guy just wanted to write a really good really long novel, but then everyone thought it was a chronicle and that would mean we're worshiping a figment of some guy's imagination. Anyway back to what I was originally here about, calling someone a bad person because they don't worship god is the same mindset Hitler himself had. "If you don't believe me, then you will pay." Only difference is that you're patient enough to let some possibly fictional being do the dirty work. How about rather than forcing a religion down someone's throat by threatening them with eternal damnation you hook us on the story within the bible instead. Which, whether chronicle or novel, started the whole religion in the first place. I have no problem with the religion itself, but when someone of any stature, race, religion, sex, or ideology tells me to "join us or go to hell" directly or in the most elaborate way possible it certainly doesn't make me want to have anything to do with them.

  21. Is Hell, where you are screaming at the top of your lungs for all eternity serious enough for you?

    If it is, the Jesus is the reason why He died for you so you don't have to go there.

    Say, "Yes!" to Jesus and invite Him into your heart, to be Lord and Savior of your life.

  22. The only difference between a decent nice guy, and a wicked person, is that should they both repent and come to Jesus, the nice guy will have fewer messes to clean up in his life. And fewer bad consequences to deal with.

  23. I have a serious question. This video says (4:36) to 1)turn from your sin and 2) come to Jesus. Aren’t we supposed to come to Jesus just as we are and Then His spirit will work in us, we become new creation and Holy Spirit will convict us and begin the long process of sanctification (‘be ye holy as I am holy’)?
    My concern is that people viewing this might get the impression that they need to turn away from all their sins before they can come to the Lord Jesus. This could be discouraging? Getting all sin out of ones heart and life can be quite a long process! God bless Ray and his team, they are such a blessing to the Body and I learn so much from him. Truly gifted by God with evangelistic skill and tremendous heart for people and Christ. God bless you all!!

  24. Anyone here that is a Christian women and has posted a comment is in violation of God's law. Women are to be silent and submissive in a place of assembly. A woman standing up to a man about anything is breaking God's law keep that in mind religious ladies. So if I don't do as y'all say I'm going to suffer for it. Sounds exactly like something a terrorist would say. Remember ladies don't be breaking God's law anymore. So if I rape an unmarried women my punishment is I have to marry her and can never divorce her even if she can't get me sons. Sorry ladies gods law, what can a lowly man do about that? Why any women is part of the Abrahamic religions blows my mind.

  25. Eveyone sins and it says in most bibles of religion god loves eveyone weather their a sinner or not so technically everyone go's to heaven or hell.

  26. 0:27 "have you kept the 10 commandments?"

    Well, there are 613 commandments in the old testament, handed down by god at various parts of the old testament. The old testament ( in Exodus 34:14-28) calls one group of them the 10 commandments.

    According to what the Bible itself says, THESE are the 10 commandments:

    1) Thou shalt worship no other god.

    2) Thou shalt make thee no molten gods.

    3) The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep.

    4) Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day rest.

    5) Thou shalt observe the feast of weeks.

    6) Thrice in the year shall all your men children appear before the Lord God.

    7) Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven.

    8) Neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the passover be left until the morning.

    9) The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring unto the house of the Lord thy God.

    10) Thou shalt not seeth a kid in his mother's milk.

    Exodus 34:28 And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.

  27. I'm Not a religious person, but if God created everything wouldn't that technically mean he created "sin" too? If so would he really judge us if he knows exactly how we feel and the reason why we feel that way? Seems kinda strange to me O_o

  28. Atheists keep accusing Christians of being self-righteous. In actuality, it is they who are. A true Christian never say he/she is righteous. He/she would admit he/she is a sinner. I remember the ANGRY ATHEIST who openly admitted he told many lies in his life and he says to Ray, THEN HOW DARE YOU CALL ME A LIAR? If that is not self righteous, i do not know what it is.

  29. Another one of the many reasons why I’m not religious. Way too many contradicting rules, & not enough people following them to the tee. Yet people still feel the need to act all “hollier than thou” cause they go to church every Sunday, & pray for forgiveness every night. My family is a perfect example of this video.

  30. So god knows that my dad hates me and wants to getg rid of me. Does god also know that I hate my step mum so much and hope my dad gets rid of her. He just thinks I am ungrateful. My life sucks ?

  31. Atheists accuse Christians of being self righteous but it is the other way around. Why? Because Christians don't make their own standard of good. It is the atheists who make their own standard. A Christian is bound to an objective standard that he/she most of the time violates because of being she sinner. Most of the time, atheists don't admit being sinners unlike the Christians so how come Christians are self righteous?
