My flesh HATES mystery,
but loves understanding, so my flesh HATES dependency/trusting, but loves independence/confidence/agenda/willfulness so I can control my world. My flesh is obsessed with understanding, so I read books, research online, listen to experts, always looking to understand more clearly, so I can captain my soul better, master my fate better. Pride. Understanding-idolatry was the first idol of our parents Adam and Eve, and is the root idol of every control-freak perfectionist, every created-dependent who is a shepherd-wannabe, every believer known for excellence. Mystery, or cluelessness about what would be best for me and others, is anathema to a shepherd-believer, a high achiever.
Only dumb-sheep-believers are comfortable with mystery, dependency, cluelessness, the lowly place. Only dumb-sheep-believers experience abundant LIFE. Ahhh. Delicious contentment. Indescribable peace, and joy unspeakable. Fearless about the opinions of others.
