    V. 3. Let no man deceive you. Same as Christ stating Matt. 24. And don't grow complacent nor weary in well doing.

    There may be some that try to shake our faith, but verse 2 tells us not to be quickly shaken from our reason. We have to constantly reason on matters using God's Word the Bible.
  • Michael C.
    Brethren in the Lord; compare 1 Kings 22:19-23: there was a scene and words spoken, which some of us may soon be able to identify with. I've never understood Jehoshaphat's readiness or ease in sitting with Ahab. We might also wonder at who will be misled to sit with the wicked; while the real servants of God are brought in to speak the truth, but shall only be rebuked, and after cast into prison.
