Yes. That is why the Buddha said there are two types of Samma Ditthi.
– What you say in the above statement is getting to the first (mundane) version of Samma Ditthi.

That DOES NOT remove the ignorance of the Four Noble Truths (embedded in Tilakkhana) that says even rebirths in the “good realms” are NOT the solution.
– The higher level of Samma Ditthi comes from that understanding.

But of course, living a moral life, embedded in the mundane Samma Ditthi. is a critical first step.
