He must increase, but I must decrease. He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaking of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. John3:30-31
There are many shepherds/pastors. There are many that are leaders in the Christian church world that are doing their best to steer us in the right direction, but they are and always will be imperfect while in the flesh. They should seek to do their best to get things right, but because they are born into a corrupt world, they will never be completely right. Not so of the Good Shepherd Jesus Christ, the one that "cometh from above." He is perfect. He is sinless. He is eternal, but our days down here are numbered. John the Baptist was here for a time, and then he was taken away, but he knew to point those following him to one greater than he was. Do not place your full trust in any but Jesus Christ. If you do that, you will be fine, even if you find yourself cut off from the rest of the fleshly body of Christ, and have to carry on. Follow Jesus and His teachings in the KJV Bible. You are never really alone.
