(in AD 58 to the Ephesian Elders) I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard! – Acts 20:29-31 (NIV)

(Jesus) To the angel of the church in Ephesus write:

I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked men, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false…Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. – Revelation 2:1-5 (NIV)
