Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 1 John 2:10


2:10 He that loveth his brother - For Christ's sake. Abideth in the light - Of God. And there is no occasion of stumbling in him - Whereas he that hates his brother is an occasion of stumbling to himself. He stumbles against himself, and against all things within and without; while he that loves his brother, has a free, disencumbered journey.

    wow, this chapter hit me today in that the spirit of antichrist can be in our brothers and sisters, we need discernment by the Holy Spirit to guide us and help us to know who are true and those who are not.
  • Walter Waller
    The king James 1611 has been round for over 400 years and proven by God to be relevant for doctrine and instruction in his knowledge which guides on our life to be pleasing into our heavenly Father!!!

    I am of the Father, through the blood of Jesus Christ. If we do not know Jesus through the Word, we will be vulnerable to deception. Their are already many antichrists, and Satan would like to trip us up. Because the truth abides in me, I have the Holy Spirit to guide me in to all truth, and that is how to defeat the devil, and prayer. Doesn't mean I am an island, but work within the body ofChrist

    There are those who say the word is no longer relavent, this in 1 john 2 discounts that assumption. We who believe in Jesus Christ as the Word need not that any man teach us. His Spirit teaches us, the sure Word of God, all things must be tested by His Word, if it doesn't meet the test, there is no light in it.
