Begin study:


Heathen is a term that is generally used to identify those who reject or refuse to acknowledge God. Since God is truth, then that carries over to the refusal to recognize truth. Heathen is a general all inclusive term that identifies the uninformed, the uneducated (lack of knowledge of truth), and is used to identify unbelievers.

Knowledge of doctrine is wisdom, and lack of knowledge of doctrine is heathenism. Heathenism has nothing to do with social status, financial status, culture or mental capabilities or education or intellect, and so forth. A person who is a PhD can be classified as a heathen if they lack (or reject) biblical information, the same as some native that lives out in a hut or cave, who lacks doctrine.

Wicked, is a term that refers to the activities of the unbelieving public. Wickedness is the production of evil, or the doing of evil, or the proactive practice of sin and such.

Rebuke here is not a simple verbal reprimand, or something done with mere words, but it is a reprimand of action by overcoming, or vanquishing, or annihilation of those who have consciously rejected truth or God.

To blot out, is a military phrase which describes what happens to a thoroughly conquered people. They lose their identity. They lose their home. They lose all rights and recognition. They become lost to history, forgotten as though they never existed.

So, if you were to fit into this category of the heathen or the wicked because you reject truth, reject God, reject Christ, reject doctrine, and in other words reject life altogether (which life consists of all of these things), then you will become nothing more than historical filler, unidentified, forgotten, not known, lost to memory, lost forever, as though you never existed in the first place.

Why? Because by rejecting God, means rejecting reality.



End of study





Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
