Discussion for 2 John 1

    I agree with Patricia Chance but first we need to really get into the right bible which is the KJ and study it. I thought I knew the bible because I listened to my pastor. But I did not check up on all that he said and I should have because I am recently finding through really getting into the study of the Gods word that he was wrong on so many things. So be very, very careful who you listen to.

    I gain knowledge of where it is written in the bible of a none believer" of JESUS CHRIST" 1 John 10" I had spoken of it on Saturday 2/6/16 to a friend, but I thought it were in the book of JAMES: ONE WORD "AMEN"
  • John madden for verse 9
    Any one who does not adhere or practice the doctrines of Christ or disobeys them they don't have god or Christ in their life..false teachers are contrary to Christ.they preach another Christ..
  • Word
    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.
  • 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.
