We are so used to thinking of ourselves as good or bad that it is hard to get out of the habit.
(In most cases, of course, we are good and they are bad.)
In order for the older generation, who have inadvertently placed their personal value in doing good deeds, to be O.K. with the New Paradigm it must be explained that they are valued and loved individuals in any case.
(They are afraid of losing their points.)
Where there is fear of punishment for not doing good deeds it should be explained that there is no punishment in any case.
But, in order to be like God, we should do no harm to others.
As we are encouraged to love others helping them will follow naturally.
So we may do the same things but the motivation will no longer be fear but love.
