Perhaps one doesn't have to be Christian to be "good", but does have to be "good" (or at least try) to be truly Christian.

Agreed, Han Liang.

Also, as a side note. I think I quoted stage 3 wrong. It should be:
"Do good because you know that God's rules are designed for your own good, so you'd better obey it."

Not at all, I've met many nonbelievers with hearts of gold.

No, of course they don't. End of discussion.

Agreed I know plenty of good Muslims, good Jews, good Buddhists, good Hindu people and good Atheists. Living by one set of rules does not make someone morally better than someone else as we all have our own set of morals. In the end so long as you are respecting the Human Rights of others, obeying the law and being the best person you can be, there's no need for religion to be good.
