I am the good shepherd: THE GOOD SHEPHERD GIVETH HIS LIFE FOR THE SHEEP. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep , and am known of mine. John 10:11-14. One more time. As far as man goes, who is a true shepherd and who is an hireling? I have to assume that when most people go to church on Sunday morning they go to hear their preacher give a message that sounds good to them. On that basis alone, most congregants would classify their preacher as a good shepherd to his sheep. (Why would you hang around bad preaching if you thought the preacher was an hireling)? So let's assume most everyone considers their preacher to be a good shepherd. Do they pass the "Gold Standard", does their ministering line up with the Bible? Again, whose bible and which version is your standard? And who gets to say which one is the right one? More variables. Does your preacher believe in Adam & Eve, or Adam and Steve? Do you have a "he" preacher, or a "she" preacher? Do they tell you some parts of the Bible are no longer needed? Who is Christ in all this? Do they do some things in secrete and can't tell you about them until you attain to a higher level of understanding? So MANY variables, teachings, understandings, truths, versions, and lies out there, and every one of them claims to be the right one, they have the "truth", trust them. On and on the list goes. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me". John 14:6. Is he just another guy hawking his wares? OR IS HE THE CHRIST, THE ONLY ONE TO COME BACK FROM THE DEAD TO SHOW US THE WAY? Yes, all roads DO lead to heaven, RIGHT STRAIGHT TO THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST. Will you Be Judged, and, Be Blessed?
