ShepherdDave is like Donald Trump,
in many ways, but is much better at appearing humble. ShepherdDave claims to follow Jesus, but is not in awe of Jesus – is in awe of certain others and strives to be in awe of himself. Like Donald Trump, he’s self-deceived about the extent of his pride/manipulation/self-awe, but is just as confident-he-knows-what’s-best. Proverbs calls this type of person a fool.
Only DumbSheepDave is in awe of Jesus, and therefore unconcerned about his own performance/reputation/worthiness. Problem is, fresh conviction of sin doesn’t last long.
–ShepherdDave, always needing fresh conviction of the sin of being dissatisfied with Jesus and His imputed worthiness, so he might momentarily be DumbSheepDave, enjoying the bliss of Jesus-dependency/humility, so the pre-believers around him might experience the other-worldly humility and other-worldly love of Jesus
