1 The Elder vnto the elect Lady, and her children, whome I loue in the trueth: and not I onely, but also all they that haue knowen þe trueth:

2 For the trueths sake which dwelleth in vs, and shalbe with vs for euer:

3 Grace bee with you, mercie, and peace from God the Father, and from the Lord Iesus Christ, the Sonne of the Father in trueth and loue.

4 I reioyced greatly, that I found of thy children walking in trueth, as wee haue receiued a commaundement from the Father.

5 And now, I beseech thee Lady, not as though I wrote a new commandement vnto thee: but that which wee had from the beginning, that wee loue one another.

6 And this is loue, that wee walke after his Commandements. This is the Commandement, that as yee haue heard from the beginning, yee should walke in it.

7 For many deceiuers are entred into the world, who confesse not that Iesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiuer, and an Antichrist.

8 Looke to your selues, that wee lose not those things which wee haue wrought, but that we receiue a full reward.

9 Whosoeuer transgresseth and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God: hee that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Sonne.

10 If there come any vnto you, and bring not this doctrine, receiue him not into your house, neither bid him, God speed.

11 For hee that biddeth him God speed, is partaker of his euill deeds.

12 Hauing many things to write vnto you, I would not write with paper and inke, but I trust to come vnto you, and speake face to face, that our ioy may be full.

13 The children of thy elect sister greet thee. Amen.

Word's 2 John Chapter 1 comment on 8/20/2015, 2:36am...

Deborah..who would be the "us" you speak of John forbidding? Re-read Verse 1 and 13?..... "The elder unto the elect lady and her children" Is that you? See 1 John 5:13 and please think deeply every day why that indeed is written to "believers". Us. Note it is not written to non believers!! "Know" why. It is why He wrote it to them, us. "Ye" In that verse would be the believer. Eternal. GLory to God. Thank you Jesus. Ps are you going to tell me PETER found your children walking in truth? Context Light.

Many Christians take take verse 11 to mean that we should start judging people left and right but I believe that to be a misinterpretation. This verse is simply saying that we should not accept false doctrine and that we shouldn 't wish them well as they spread their false doctrine. In other words I simply don 't say God bless you if I believe that you are spreading a false doctrine.


Cbaux's 2 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 7 on 5/13/2015, 12:20am...

I think this is silly, when you put the word deceiver up, my first thought Jacob-deceiver so your saying Jacob was an anti-Christ? Anyone can pick words and make them say what you want them to just by going from one language to another. So if your going to use the word in the NT you should say so.


Deborah's 2 John Chapter 1 comment on 4/30/2015, 2:01am...

Here in 2 John, is a new way that we are to look at those that are against the son of God. As Christians we have become quite passive loving and accepting all things and people as truth. John forbids us to walk in this passitivity, but rather to stand against those that do not believe in the Christ. He says, do not even welcome them in your house and don 't bless their going. His warnings seem harsh but in reality hold true. And example can be seen in a Christian person that is around a person that cusses all the time seldom, the cussing person seldom stops, but his behavior will soon influence the Christian person and before you know it little bits of the non believer 's behavior will slowly invade the Christian 's behavior. I have never seen it work the other way around.

It 's telling us to study the word of God because so many false teachers and deceivers are practicing deceit and not basic on the true word of God.


Sateki's 2 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 6 on 4/21/2015, 9:16pm...

Obeying the words of GOD that is love, meaning you will have to forget what you love in this world and you have to put GOD first in everything. Allow him to become the captain of daily journey.

Motdaugrnds's 2 John Chapter 1 comment on 3/15/2015, 7:50pm...

Interesting to me was the fact "ministers " would come to my house to try and get me to understand the Ten Commandments had been changed and the 7th no longer applied. I had been raised in these ministers ' church with the Ten Commandments hanging on the wall of that church yet when I discovered the Seventh Day Sabbath was God 's sign of creation and that Jesus did not change any part of the Law, these very ministers came to convince me otherwise. The interesting part of all this was that it was these ministers who left my house confused because they could not provide Scripture references to counter the Scripture referrences presented to them. I remember when I was first studying the Bible FOR MYSELF and had many questions. An evangelist from Iran visited my house, stayed two hours and answered every single question I presented with straight Scripture. I discovered about a week later he had not even remembered talking with me because he and the Pastor he was visiting had been working long hours that day. However, it was the Holy Spirit who answered all my questions because not one answer came from this evangelist 's mouth. It all came from the Bible!
