EMPORIA, KS—Local Christian man Raymond Padilla confirmed Friday that he's still caught in an endless loop of finally thinking he's achieved humility, only to realize suddenly that the very thought that he's humble means that he's no longer humble.
Padilla works hard to become humble, achieves a sufficient level of humility, and then basks in how great he is for having become humble for several moments before it dawns on him that he's proud and arrogant again.
"I finally did it," he said after his quiet time Friday morning. "I finally achieved humility---oh darn."
"Back to the old drawing board," he sighed as he picked up his Bible to try again.
