‘Pagans’ leaves us with some fascinating possibilities. We must be careful not to read too much into it but touching down on the options opens our eyes to a different way of understanding ‘pagan’ language. Douglas Harper shows how in classical literature a pagan was a word used to refer to the local villager or civilian. The word is rooted in ‘pangere’ which means to fix or fasten things. Think about this for a moment. A ‘pagan’ is that person who has no consciousness of God. They don’t wake every day with a sense of Divinity around them or working in the fabric of their lives. They understand themselves to be the solution and end to everything. Their purpose is to look after life and make the best of it.
