20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Rev 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
Apocalypse - A prophetic disclosure; a revelation.
1. The act of revealing or disclosing.
2. Something revealed, especially a dramatic disclosure of something not previously known or realized.
# Theology. A manifestation of divine will or truth.
Jesus warns of a 2nd shepherd. Jesus warns of a religion that will be created in his name through a political power. Paul comes after Jesus, makes up nearly 50% of the "new" testament, more than Jesus and the disciples that walked with Jesus combined. Paul teaches that he is the new father and teacher, and appeals to Rome and political power. The Roman Empire establishes the church and then proceeds to kill anyone who didn't go along with their bible and version.
And count the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given to him, as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. The are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures.
2 Peter 3.15-16 (ESV)

haha.. I just had to comment on your signature! Made me laugh.. I also think it is funny that no one ever considers that Jesus, by not throwing a stone, was in fact admitting that he was not without sin himself (that is, if one buys into Jesus being an actual man that existed). Anyway, the sig is good for a laugh.
