People's Bible Notes for 2 John 1:10

2Jo 1:10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine. That of Christ. If he be a deceiver, an opposer of Christ, one who denies that "Jesus Christ came in the flesh". Receive him not into [your] house. Do not recognize him as a brother and extend to him a brotherly welcome. He is to be fellowshipped. Neither bid him God speed. Give him no encouragement in his work of destruction. To give him greetings is to wish for his success.

Michael's comment on 2013-12-21 23:09:09:

I think it is pretty clear. If any man teaches another doctrine about the virgin born, incarnate Christ, you are to have nothing, yes NOTHING to do with them and the "gospel" they bring. I have had many a discussion in my front yard with Jehovah's Witnesses people who try to double talk you into believing that they don't treat Jesus any differently than you. They do not believe in the Trinity and do not believe Jesus was God come to earth in the flesh.

 

Timothy Wayne George's comment on 2013-02-16 11:45:05:

We have to keep the context of what this passage is talking about. If anyone does not believe in the virgin birth of Christ, then that person is an Anti-Christ, and you are not to bid them God speed. This does not mean that you treat all unbelievers as Anti-Christian. We are to be salt, and light in the world, and we should witness to unbelievers so that they can come to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and escape the snares of the devil. To the one that has a child that is having sexual orientation issues, you must love them, but hate the sin. Pray for them, that God will open their eyes to the glorious gospel of truth. God is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance, (2 Peter 3:9).
