Are You A Sheep?

    The bible refers to the believer as a sheep. Any believer who accepts the bible as truth accepts being a sheep. Do sheep have individual minds? lol


    Jesus said, "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand" (John 10:27-28, NKJV).

    John 21:17 He said to him the third time, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me?’ Peter felt hurt because he said to him the third time, ‘Do you love me?’ And he said to him, ‘Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Feed my sheep.

    "For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture,
    and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his
    voice,"
    Psalms 95:7, KJV

    "Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made
    us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep
    of his pasture."
    Psalms 100:3, KJV

    "When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the
    holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of
    his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and
    he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd
    divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the
    sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left."
    Matthew 25:31-33, KJV

    ^^^^ Separatism


    What is it like being a non thinking sheep? Ignorance is bliss right?

      If you are not using your conscious thought to guide your own life, then you a 'sheep' follower being subjected to anti-life indoctrination by other people who believe that you CAN NOT guide your own life, through conscious thought and honest actions.



      This statement can be put into proper text, with a little knowledge about the time it was written and understanding of life-

      Jesus said, "My sheep(followers) hear My voice(his words), and I know them, and they follow Me(they listen to my words). And I give them eternal life(immortality) and they shall never perish(die); neither shall anyone(religious leaders) snatch them out of My hand(away from his teachings).



      You can break this down into proper context as well.

      John 21:17 - He said to him the third time, 'Simon son of John, do you love me?'(do you understand my teachings) - Peter felt hurt because he said to him the third time, 'Do you love me?' And he said to him, 'Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.'(if you love Jesus Christ, then you've learned to love yourself and be one with yourself.) Jesus said to him "Feed my sheep".(meaning to pass out food to his followers.)



      Again- For he(Jesus Christ) is our God(conscious individual); and we are the people of his pasture(followers) and the sheep of his hand(teachings). To day if ye will hear his voice,"(understand his teachings).



      Again- Know ye that the LORD(Jesus Christ) he is God(conscious individual): it is he(Jesus Christ) that hath made us(brought them from unconscious to consciousness), and not we ourselves(because they didn't know before him that they were alive); we are his people(followers), and the sheep of his pasture.



      Again- When the Son of man shall come in his glory(reach consciousness), and all the holy angels with him(all other humans breakthrough to consciousness), then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory(when mankind evolves to consciousness and guides themselves, they owe their life to Jesus Christ's teachings): And before him shall be gathered all nations(all of humanity): and he shall separate them one from another(each will have independent conscious individual thought), as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats(separation of honesty and dishonesty in each person): And he shall set the sheep(followers) on his right hand, but the goats on the left.(to keep apart those who are dishonest away from those who live honestly).

      Separatism - is religion. It wants you to be controlled, because it is believed by those in power that you cannot guide your own individual life. You MUST answer to a higher authority, otherwise there would be chaos- a false belief.

      If you're willing to sacrifice your life with a belief to a false idol- Jesus Christ will consider you DISHONEST and since you are dishonest, you will never be accepted in society.

      Isn't about time that you actually took over your life.

      DO It!

      Do not follow the false 'god' you've created in your mind and your heart- Why? Because Jesus Christ, a human male already told you- DO NOT Believe in a false 'god' or idol.

      If you can't see the truth that religion is evil in itself- then you obviously know nothing about life.

        Your statement says otherwise.

        "I'm a free sheep."

        If you were a sheep, you wouldn't be a free sheep.

        The sheep are the followers/believers of religion.

        So, I guess I have to ask- Are you religious?

        If so, you are a sheep.

        If not, you are an individual conscious thinking person. Hooray!

    The basis for your argument is flawed. Where in the bible does it say you must be unthinking? All of your quotations only allude to the idea that we are watched over and cared for, and have nothing to do with questioning and searching for answers. The fact that we have intelligence available means we should use it to question and analyze. That does not mean that we must automatically disbelieve.

                    Ooo word of adivice. NEVER step in a ring of mushrooms. Those are Fairy Rings! And it is said that if you do the fairies will come back and steal you away to their land then if you eat their food you will be trapped in their world forever.

            But you are. When you are talking about religious belief, you cannot separate one person who believes from another.

            Anyone whose belief is based on religion, doesn't think for themselves. This is proven by the wording of the bible. It speaks of commandments and rules, which you are to follow without question.

            Life doesn't work that way.

                  I like being loved and cared for.
                  Isaiah 40:11 "He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young."
                  I love and care for my children. I endeavor to guide them.In the same way God is my father. he is a loving shepherd. When I lose my way, he comes looking for me. He doesn't just let the crazy wolves kill and eat me.
                  I think I have it better than the non-sheep.

        Like your new pic tantrum

        Automatically disbelieving is the same thing as automatically believing. In either case, there is no thought involved.
        Having said that, how can a person believe some parts of the bible but not other parts? It's a complete contradiction. How can the "sacred knowledge" not be true throughout?

      Sheep don't need to think when the sheppard thinks for them! How much individual thinking is required in a grouped taught belief?

      1. Dark knight rides profile image69
        Dark knight ridesposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        Should I assume you never went to school? Or did your teacher do all your thinking for you? Bet you just kind of wandered into class whenever, left in the middle. Probably never been part of a group yourself, right? Never part of a team, always do everything alone?

        Or maybe you have done things within a group, maybe even a group with a leader. Maybe you were in a class, and you asked questions and got answers, from a teacher. Does that make you a mindless automaton, or did it let you learn from someone else, and find your own way to apply your knowledge. Just because someone leads, doesn't mean you follow unthinkingly.

    I use to be a sheep.  I was miserable.  I truly thought I was supposed to judge myself and others and be happy.  Never was happy and almost committed suicide.

    Since I "left the heard," I have been way more spiritual and happier with life.  I actually have see life for what it is and know there is a deeper meaning than one person or entity judging my actions.

    I was a bad, bad sheep smile

  4. wyanjen profile image87
    wyanjenposted 7 years ago

    The only thing I really took from all of that is "Feed my sheep" lol

    I think when people are young, in school, it can be easy to consider themselves sheep. They are in an environment of learning, not so much thinking independently. I got all the way to high school myself, before my own brain stopped seeing teachers as all-knowing people who should not be argued with.

    I might be way off base thinking this, but it was my own experience.

    If I had not by that point already throw away the bible (secretly), I can imagine that being a sheep would have become a foundation of my faith.

    Then again that didn't happen so maybe my imagination is stretching things a bit.
    I'm just trying to understand the idea, myself...

    Ok, ok, ok.

    The sheep followed along, obedient, as all sheep are wont to do.
    Even when it was thrown to the ground, it didn't struggle. It was only when his knife began to cut its throat that the fighting began.
    But by then it was too late. The end had come.
    For the humans though, the job was just beginning.
    They dragged it from the small pool of blood to cleaner ground.
    Cutting began by stripping the skin from the back legs.
    They broke the legs off below the back knees,...
    and hung the body up with a stick between the leg bones.
    Then carefully, oh so carefully, they began stripping off the skin.
    It takes a strong arm to punch and pull the skin off.
    Then they opened up its sternum.
    No blood was left, and at this point we realized their hands were clean.
    Carefully they began sorting out good parts from bad parts.
    They pulled out the intestines hand over hand so as not to cause a nasty smelling rupture...
    ehehe

                Now, why did you go and say something mean like that?

                I speak from honesty and love for humanity. I've come to a realization that religion must die, so civilization(mankind) can truly live life, as it was meant to and I'm going to spread my logical and factual knowledge to all those who will listen.

                That means, most people need to push their own ego aside and open their ears and eyes, just so they can get answers.

                I am not the only person on the planet who wants answers. Many hundreds of millions of people want a better understanding of Life. I can answer all questions that are needed to be answered.

                  You DO realize that you are the perfect counterpoint to my point. You've no idea how long I've waited for a sparring partner like you. None of what I say is done with malice. But, it is enjoyable nonetheless. wink

                    I realize that. It's not too difficult to see. But, mostly my responses are not really meant for you, but to get others to read my post.

                    You just happen to be the person I am directly conflicting with.

                    You are simply an ends to justify my means. Yes, I have a personal agenda- TO HELP FREE MINDS!

                    So, people can say whatever they want about what I say. It's perfectly okay. I'm comfortable in my own skin, so subjective talk from others and conjecture from religion isn't going to effect me.

                    I know WHY I live.

                    I know What Life means.

                    I know I have a consciousness and it's meaning.

                    I know I have a conscience and why I have it.

                    I think for myself- Therefore am my own GOD and need no authority to tell me how to live.

    I've not been at hub pages for a long time, by I get the impression that if a thread has a religious connotation at the start, it becomes somthing else at the end, you know, like after the soccer match at the pub.

    On the other hand, if it has any connotation but religious at the start, some times it becomes a religious debate at some point and eventually end like ...
    after the soccer match at the pub.

    hehehe

      There is a reason for that. Because, religious beliefs are deeply rooted in society and it directly impacts everyone, in some way, shape or form.

      The one thing people do not realize is that every action(cause) has a consequence(effect), even if you don't see it.

      You must realize that your individual life is integrated into society in a manner, as to everything you do in public has an effect on someone somewhere.

      Example: you to go the store to buy milk- you are helping the business and every single person connected to that business. Not to mention, if that business gives money to charitable organizations, then you are helping those people too. And, anyone connected them who does something else.

      Religion is quietly destroying an individual's capacity to think for themselves. Thus, religious beliefs are harmful to the lives of the people who believe.

      REALIZE:

      You have a Consciousness that tells you that you are ALIVE and can think. This gives you your awareness.

      You have a Conscience that tells or indictates what is right and what is wrong.

      Since, you can form your own thoughts and perform your own actions- WHY would you live your life according to someone else's authority?

      Why would you willingly give up your own individual ability to control your life? What sense does that make?

      Religion only exists because of those in power have a perceived notion that EVERY CITIZEN MUST ANSWER to a Higher Authority, otherwise their would be Chaos.

      Religion is man-made to enslave the human race, so the powerful leaders can keep mankind under control.

      It's pathetic and a Lie!
