Where the world comes to study the Bible

John 17

Other Sheep

Pastor Tom Starr told of a conference he attended where John R. Rice gave one of his last messages. He had suffered a heart attack and spoke from a wheelchair. His text was from John 10, “Other sheep have I who are not of this fold.” and he mentioned other believers who might not be precisely aligned theologically, but nonetheless were believers. Dr. Rice had opposed Billy Graham’s ministry because of Dr. Graham’s willingness to work with unbelieving religious leaders. But when Billy learned that Dr. Rice was advertising some of his materials in a non-Christian publication, he mailed him a check for $500 to help. When Dr. Rice went into the hospital with the heart attack, Billy was one of the first to call him.
