You don’t think I’m a heathen do you?” But such reasoning does not settle the matter at all. The fact is, the world is not divided up into those who are Christian and those who are heathen. In fact, a person may be of an exemplary character, morally upright, respectable, religious and even God-fearing, and still not be a Christian! This statement may surprise some, but please read on and you will see for yourself how important it is to have a proper understanding of what a Christian really is.
