1 John 2
18 Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour.
It was always whispered by people at church that there was an anti-Christ who was not Satan of either the Garden of Eden or Job's time.
We know what he actually taught (albeit its excluded from the bible) through the Acts of Paul and Thecla, a beautiful young woman engaged to marry Thamyris a leading Iconiun citizen.
I have often said that I think the religious texts are more like two way highways than they are one way streets.... they can lead you in both directions, it just depends on which direction your heart's desire leads you in. if it's christ spirit leading your heart, you will latch onto the idea of forgiveness, love, charity, ect... if it's the anti-christ spirit, well, you will latch on to those things that you see that seem to promise you more power, more wealth, more control.
