12/27/2018 — the books of 2nd and 3rd John

In our readings we have seen Jesus, Peter, Paul, and others warn of the severe danger of false teachers that will appear.  In today’s reading we see John do the same

2 John: 7 I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch out that you do not lose what we have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully.

Could there be any doubt that as believers today we see the same?  And it is our personal responsibility to be attuned to the inspired word of God so that these false teachings can be identified and corrected for the benefit of all believers.

    I think it is important to note that John warns that deception can come from within the fellowship of “Christians”. All the more reason to be grounded in the Word and seek out His truth.
