What is worldliness?

Intensity about my performance, reputation, somebodiness.  Only shepherd-believers experience this, are passionate about failure-avoidance, excellence at all costs.  Dumb-sheep-believers are completely liberated about losing all they have, becoming nobodies, losers, being pitied by all.

Only shepherd-believers are competitive, passionate about their favorite sports teams, need to feel good about themselves based on performance, are critical/judgmental of others, noting others’ failures, poor performance.  Worldly.  Leaven of the Pharisees.

Dumb-sheep-believers just have fun.  Operate with reckless abandon, and interestingly, are able to perform to the limit because they are so free, so uninhibited, so unafraid of failure.

How does a shepherd-believer change and become a dumb-sheep-believer?  Impossible.  Except by the convicting work of the Holy Spirit.  A temporary thing.

–DumbSheepDave, experiencing times of sanity and freedom like never before, hoping the pre-believers around him are noticing the difference over the past year
