Why do people say “don’t be a sheep” and then follows Christianity or any other religion?

The Irony is that the bible is full of sheep and shepherd imagery. John 10:11 “I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.”

Because they don’t believe they are sheep.

Just another layer to their divorce from reality.

“The Lord is my shepherd…” and I am a sheep. But, I won’t let that stop me from calling you a sheep. Nah. I don’t get it either. Especially for religions where they proudly proclaim God to be their shepherd and even have statements like “thy rod and thy staff they comfort me”, it just makes no sense.

Because we all like to believe we’re more free thinking than we really are so it’s easier to see it in others than ourselves.
