Guest Article; to the scattered flock of Jesus

Pastor Bill Randles Blog

The shepherd leads the flock to safety. Notice the little lamb.
I am a nobody. I don’t have a large ministry or platform. I am merely one of many nameless, faceless, little sheep who have been wandering in the evangelical wilderness for a long time. I don’t have much money, or even the strength and enthusiasm of my youth anymore. I’m not worth much to the typical pastor. Even so, I have something to say.

I am always concerned that many who may seek to grow in Jesus might end up in an apostate church and sometimes wonder if I’ve thrown them to the wolves myself. I can only pray that God gives them a discerning heart. It hurts…

  2. Hi Hope! Thank you for re-blogging my post. I received two other emails with the same concern over Greg Laurie. One of the emails was from Amy Spreeman who was willing to publish it on her Berean Research blog if I made the change: “Greg Laurie, who himself has embraced Cathangelicalism . . . ” I told her I agreed and made the changes. ❤
