I think option 3 covers it

James:

I understand to a degree what you are saying, but I don't see a significant difference from option 3:

The third chose to do good works because of a considered decision that it was the right thing to do.

You just seem to feel a need for faith to assist your decision making. On the other hand, I and most other non-believers manage to determine what is the right thing to do without the need to resort to religious faith.

Of course if there is no decision at all involved in following your faith, how can you determine whether your faith is leading you into committing good deeds or into committing evil deeds?
