We are all Heathen - - if we are without Jesus

Heathen: One who is regarded as irreligious, uncivilized, or unenlightened.
I was about eleven years old, in the fifth grade and at the end of the period one day out of the blue the teacher stopped me and asked what faith I was.
I felt the redness starting to creep up into my face for I had never been inside a church. From somewhere the word Baptist popped up in my mind and I blurted out, “We is Baptist.”She looked me straight in the eyes and said make sure you go to your church. This was the first time I had ever connected with the word church since I had been raised as a heathen or at least the only thing that my family used the word GOD for was to cuss.
Since I went to the movies a lot and there were some movies about the Catholic church - - however I noted that the kids in the movies were not any better as far as conduct than I was without the church.
My grandfather started to go to the Church Of Christ and I was about fifteen at the time. I would go with him on occasions for I knew most of the people who went there. The church had two doors kinda like a restroom and the women and small kids went in at the left door and the men on the right. There was a rail that ran down the middle dividing the men from the women.
Once a month a preacher would come and preach otherwise the deacons would get up and read from the bible.
I didn't go there enough to change my heathen-ness and I continued to live without GOD until I was eighteen.
We live in a Nation of heathen people who are in the same condition as I was.
They have never entered a church and use the name of GOD and Jesus Christ as swear words instead of calling upon the name of the Lord for salvation.
Jesus said if I be lifted up I will draw all men unto me!
If we don't lift him up then none will be drawn to him.I like this song!
