A heathen rejects the true God
  • which prior to the written Word, they rejected when God spoke directly
  • which when God spoke directly to OT Prophets\ NT writers and he had them write down (which now is the Bible ... nothing else)
  • which today anyone who contradicts the written word which God had people penned i.e. the Bible
A heathen rejects God's will for them
  • which leads them to practice superstitions (humanism\ false religions \ cults\ atheists\ agnostics )
A heathen can live as morally pure as can be, but without faith, their humanistic morality means nothing
Thanks. I'm quite aware of how you think. But I was asking ShepardMaster (though colour me unsurprised if he agrees with you.)

Two weeks ago family came to visit, all sisters of my mother including the widow of my late uncle. They were all wearing crosses, all four of them. The crosses contained the ashes of my uncle.

So, IOWs, they are wearing a dead man around their necks.

Burning of the dead is a pagan practice, wearing crucifixes is a pagan practice, getting drunk like the old bar hags they are is a pagan practice.....and I could go on.

No, I had little to nothing to say to them.

But man cannot comprehend the existence of error, when too deeply immersed in it. Which doesn't come as a surprise.
