I loved Mishel McCumber's article, (click on the title, "Bad Shepherds").
I've noticed these verses before and have been struck with just how many hirelings are manning the pulpits of major "ministries" and getting rich from them. However, for every large mega ministry there are perhaps thousands across the US in the organized church getting away with the same thing. If you suspect you are being led by such a shepherd, (hireling), compare the scriptures with his doings, and if you find that the shepherd where you attend looks suspiciously like those in Mishel's article, run, don't walk to the nearest church door and make a hasty exit.
God bless and grant you wisdom and discernment as you read,
