Take what you will from this...



Edit: perhaps a little though on the matter...

Jesus compared people to these animals...

Watch and wonder why...

This is what I think:



All in all, it's domesticated farm animals; livestock.
Considering this is in the Religion section, I'm guessing there's some inference going on here.
If that's the case, well, who wants to be livestock of any kind?

Um ya so what did I just watch?
One persistent sheep that is for sure, and is it just me or did it seem the goat never really tried for a real head butt? Figured a good one of those would have ended the sheeps bugging it.
And yes being in the religion section with that title, this is not what I expected

This is what I take from it :

Sheep : Humble, down to earth, persistent, forgiving

Goat : Indignant, annoyed, stubborn


What are your thoughts?

Are we going for religious symbolism?
How about Lion versus Snake.

The suspense O_O

I did notice that, yes. Goats tend to be more curious, and want to go searching for better things to eat, thus the reason for tying him up, so that he doesn't run away and make trouble, whereas the sheep is perfectly content with what he has, realizing that what he needs is right here at his feet, save that for some reason, he really wants to be close to that goat!


What are your thoughts on the video posted in the OP?

I'm more interested in others thoughts then my own...

the goat is the stronger animal, yet he seems rather gentle don't you think?

the sheep bows to the threat, yet follows...

That is what was the most strange to me, is the fact the goat would rear up and then seem to take out all the power it had going at the end. As if to just try and scare and intimidate the sheep..?

And the sheep didn't seem to care, just met the violence with peace.

Poor goat cannot escape - notice it is tied up. The sheep can wander free but won't leave the goat alone - the goat is not actually hurting the sheep but is very frustrated.

Quite right indeed, this topic interests me greatly, although I don't think I can get too much further into it without it turning into me preaching! Quite a deep topic, and when I reach deep, it all comes back to what I perceive to be the truth.

As this is your thread, out of respect for you, I will abstain!

Also, is anyone else noticing that everything is in italics?

The goat is tied up because he will run off in search of "greener pastures" if he isn't. Why does the goat need to escape? He has the food he needs at his feet!

But the goat serves not himself. The goat is to do the will of his master.

The sheep needs no freedom, simply trust in his shephard.

The goat doesn't need freedom either, but doesn't realize this!

The master doesn't have the goat and sheep there for no reason. Maybe they're food, maybe they're pets, who knows. They are the masters to do with what he wills.

For my sacrifices i like to use goats, i fed toooooo many lambs on my granddads farm as a toddler (also the smell of lamb cooking turns my stomach)

Lambs are cuter than baby goats too.

Isn't that the creed of government?

Sure, but aren't we talking about Religion, Faith, and Theology?
