Worldliness is…

being in awe of human excellence, achievement, somebodiness, worshiping the created instead of the Creator, and ShepherdDave is just as worldly as any secular, but I imagine myself worshiping only Jesus.  Self-deception.  Hypocrisy.  Striving for excellence, competence, togetherness, coolness.  Competing with other somebodies for human worship.  Confident-I-know-what’s-best — what will make me happy.  Modern-day Pharisee, imagining myself godly, but craving the awe of man — others-awe and self-awe.
