Just How DO we expect pagans to act?

My question is NOT rhetorical.  How do we expect pagans to act?

Christians seem appalled when pagans act like... well, pagans.  And I am NOT trying to disparage pagans here. Pagans have no choice but to:
  • 1) Go for the gusto!
  • 2) Act as if YOLO.
  • 3) Focus on enjoyment.

Sooooo, when they do, don't get all worked up!

On the other hand, when we Christians do the SAME THING, we ought to then be agitated.  I am NOT saying that we aren't sinners saved by grace. 

Christians sin. 

You see Christians have a choice.  We are indwelt by the Holy Spirit.  We have been freed from the domain of Satan.  We are capable of living HOLY lives, not because of who we are, but because of who G^d is.

So, let's try to keep it straight.  I know it's tough for us all, but it matters.

No, let's all really try.
