1 Corinthians 6:11
Some of you used to be like that; but you have washed it all away, you have been consecrated, you have become upright, by the power of our Lord Jesus Christ and through the Spirit of our God.
But formerly, in your ignorance of God, you were slaves to gods that really did not exist,
So remember that you were once physically heathen, and called uncircumcised by those who called themselves circumcised, though only physically, by human hands.
So what I mean and insist upon in the Lord's name is this: You must no longer live like the heathen, with their frivolity of mind and darkened understanding.
1 Thessalonians 1:9
For when people speak of us, they tell what a welcome you gave us, and how you turned from idols to God, to serve a true and living God,
For we ourselves were once without understanding, disobedient, deluded, enslaved to all kinds of passions and pleasures. Our minds were full of malice and envy. Men hated us and we hated one another.
1 Peter 4:3
You have spent time enough in the past in doing as the heathen like to do, indulging in sensuality, passion, drunkenness, carousing, dissipation, and detestable idolatry.
