I gave you my paraphrase of what I think Jesus was referring to when He used the word pagan.
A wolf in sheep's clothing is what I think of. A really mean person who pretends to be nice.
Matthew 10:13If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector
When I think of a tax collector I don't think of a country person having fun in nature.
We should look up the Greek to see what the word pagan meant when Jesus used it.
