John 10:11-14 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives his life for the sheep. The hired help he who is not the shepherd, the one who does not own the sheep sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep. Leaving the wolf to catch the sheep. I am the good shepherd, I know my sheep and am known by my own.
This is so true today. You have every kind of self proclaimed evangelist, preacher, bishop, priest in all "religions" claiming to be the leader of the "flock". There is only one and that is Jesus. If there be a name for those who have the goodness in their hearts to teach the word of God so be it. Let them be called teachers. They are not divine. They are human just like me and you. And are not owed anything to be teachers of the word. Unlike some standing at the pulpit. Remember who the good shepherd was. He will come back for his sheep soon.
