while worldlies feel right at home. Aliens are Jesus-dependents, embracing a Kingdom that’s not of this world. Just because one professes to be a Christian, does not mean we are a Jesus-dependent/alien. Aliens are dependent on Jesus, do NOTHing on their own, are not wise in their own eyes, do not lean on their own understanding, and therefore are clueless-they-know-what’s-best, exuding a peace that surpasses understanding. And they love worldies and enemies and other aliens, just as they are. Humble, not proud. Contented. The heart of a worldly goes out to an alien, a humble Christian. Aliens are easy to love.
Worldies on the other hand, are confident-we-know-what’s-best, competitive, strongly opinionated, excel at secretly analyzing, critiquing, judging, everyone and everything. Hardly any difference between a worldly Christian and a worldly nonChristian. Huge difference between a worldly and an alien.
