DumbSheepDave is not anti-intellectual,

even though intellectuals — both Christian and secular, see him as anti-intellectual. DumbSheepDave is intellectually-agnostic. Like a religious-agnostic who doesn’t concern himself with God, DumbSheepDave doesn’t concern himself with intellectual pursuits, because they require being wise in one’s own eyes, leaning on one’s own understanding, being confident-one-knows-what’s-best. An anti-intellectual is an intellectual-atheist, not an intellectual-agnostic. DumbSheepDave enjoys intellectuals, and anti-intellectuals, and other intellectual-agnostics, because DumbSheepDave enjoys everyone just as we are.

Instead of intellectual pursuits, DumbSheepDave just enjoys the yummy grass that his SovereignShepherdJesus leads him to eat, and is curious/expectant to see where his Shepherd leads him next. DumbSheepDave is blissfully clueless-he-knows-what’s-best. DumbSheepDave is unbothered by the condescension of intellectuals like ShepherdDave, who love to opine about everything under the sun. DumbSheepDave experiences a peace and a contentment unknown to ShepherdDave.

–ShepherdDave, who only sees the problem when the Spirit freshly convicts him of the sin of independence/pride/worldliness/confidence-he-knows-what’s-best, so he’s momentarily DumbSheepDave, experiencing the bliss of Jesus-dependency/Jesus-contentment/Jesus-humility, so the seculars around him can experience the other-worldly love of Jesus

Unless you are unusually-self-aware,

you won't realize how unhappy and uncontent you are when you're human-wisdom-dependent. You'll just think your life has always been this way. So without tastes of Heaven -- Jesus-dependency, you won
