Are you a good person if you brag about the good deeds you have done?

Lately i read a lot of comments on youtube saying that you aren't a good person if you brag about the good things you have done. And that didn't make sense to me. It didn't make sense to me because doing a lot of good deeds make you a good person and bragging about them is irrelevant. This is my opinion. 

This is their logic: good people aren't good people if they brag about their good deeds. 
Here is my take on their logic even further: bad people aren't bad people if they brag about the bad deeds they have done. 

So this is where my confusion comes into play. So a murderer isn't a bad person if he/she brags about the murder they committed? Ofc they are bad people but their logic says they are not. 

If the above comparison is wrong, im sorry. I do have a track record of making bad comparisons in arguments so please don't be rude to me if i'm wrong. xd haha

I think your motive for doing them may be in the wrong place but the people that are affected by your good deed, regardless of reason, will still be appreciative. I'd rather see a person doing good and bragging than a person doing nothing and complaining.

That being said....I still think bragging about it is a bit shallow.

A person who is good on average can still do bad things without losing the status of being good - to brag is bad, but they might be a good person overall. The good could outweigh the bad. You could say that bragging makes them less good than if they didn't brag.

You carrying on of the logic to say "bad people aren't bad people if they brag about the bad deeds they have done," is not accurate, but the mistake is understandable. The act of bragging is classified as bad (at least by these people you talk about) so bragging about anything, good or bad, is considered a bad thing, thus the murderer would be considered worse if he bragged about it.

You can be a good person and brag about the good things you did. If you do a good thing and then brag about it you do not automatically turn bad.

Hello Thinker:

Sure.. The DOING of the good deed is what counts - NOT what you say or don't say about it.

Side: yes

Yeah, you're still a good person. You're also kind of an egotistical douche, but everything has a catch-22, I suppose.

45 is a GREAT PRESIDENT! He has bragged since he took office! As Grenache said: He's vain and self absorbed, out of touch with reality or afraid of the truth he is covering... over Russia?. What he really wishes is that other people would say those things about him ... other than Arpaio or Pence ... (fat chance)! Good person......??

But Bronto says it's all fake ... is he leaving Trump? :-)

You just described the Left and the Democrat Party. For decades they have piously preached that they alone care about the poor.

They have demonized the GOP and the Right for supposely lacking the wonderful compassionate traits possessed by themselves.

Do you see them piously parading disabled people on the stage during elections to pretend only they care for these people? They say "LOOK AT ME" I care for these people. Then they go even further and lie, saying the Right does not care about them.

The Leftwing hypocrites on this site brag about the same things while it is they who support killing even viable unborn babies for any reason.

Their bragging is a joke especially when they are such inhuman people for supporting no restriction abortions.

Side: no

You really should come out of your "alternate universe", apparently everything is backwards there.

No. The only time you get credit for tooting your own horn is if it's a resume, an autobiography, or if anyone directly asks you for it. Otherwise, if you just out of the blue declare "I'm a good person because..." or "I'm a people person...." or "People like me..." what it really says instead is a combination of:

1) You're vain and self absorbed

2) You are either out of touch with reality or you are so afraid of the truth that you are covering it over, and

3) What you really wish is that OTHER people would say those things about you but since you know they won't you're going to do it yourself.

Side: no

No. If you need to jump around in circles pointing out your "great morality" or the "good" things you have done, it's all fake. It's like when you scream white privilege as a white person, yet never give it up to a minority. It's like when you bellow about racism as a white person, yet live in a completely white neighborhood. It's like when you say we need to help the poor, yet you never help the poor. And yet, said person is quick to talk about these needs and "injustices" incessantly, yet never actually does anything about it. Actions speak. Words are cheap.

You are describing someone who has not done any good, but claims that they have, which is not what the debate is about. If one would actually do very good deeds, like doing voluntary work against racism, they deserve to do some bragging about it. If they really did something good, it wont feel like they are bragging when they tell you about it.

If you are going around bragging about it, you didn't do it out of the kindness of your heart. You did it for self righteous glorification and worship of yourself.

There is none good, no, not one. All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. We all deserved to die and burn in Hell forever. All are corrupt, polluted by sin which reigns in our bodies and holds them in condemnation of death.
