    A good man is a person who agrees with what I write. A bad man doesnt.

    My standards are not very high...obey the laws of the land, be kind to others, etc....
    God's standards are much different...as in all are guilty of sin and need to repent...in fact, the bible says...

    Jer 17:9

    (ASV) The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly corrupt: who can know it?

    (KJV+) The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

    (YLT) Crooked is the heart above all things, And it is incurable--who doth know it?

    1. One who is tolerant.

    2. One who is intolerant.

    Once you think about it, it makes sense. Tolerance is the essence of what being good means.

    Your #1 means that an atheist can't be a good man. Do you mean that?

    I'm intolerant of evil. Does that mean I'm bad?

    So true!

    God's standards are impossible for man to keep, but Jesus kept the law perfectly. Only He was worthy to pay our sin's debt. Now, because of what Jesus did on our behalf on the cross, we have the righteousness of God imputed to us who believe.

    Ro 4:24 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;

    I almost agree with you. I think it would be better as:

    1. One who loves mercy (atheist or theist).

    2. One who is an arrogant bully.
