Discussion for 2 John 1:7

  • 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.
