    Oh and one more thing we all should agree on. That Jesus is the son of God and that he was born of a virgin into this world and that he died for all of our sins, for we can have a way into eternal life with Him in heaven.
  • Robert
    Although we all will not agree on all doctrines of faith, there is one thing that we all should agree on and that is verses 5 and 6. Remember LOVE is the KEY. GOD BLESS.
  • Shellyann Campbell Stephens for verse 7
    I love to read the words of god

    Yes verse 1o is very good example in how we must treat those who are carrying another doctrine or false belief, I was so zealous me and some other Christian sister and the Jehovah Witness always coming around to show us that they knew their word and like wise did we, one mistake we made we allowed them to come and have bible study so we could show them the way, and we did and they left scratching their heads because one thing for sure you are never to let an unbeliever or unlearned show you the way we conduct and asked the question and they left baffle because they had so many question and never could understand the truth and that's because the truth is revealed within your heart and once your filled with God Holy Spirit he began to unfold the beautiful Gospel, the light is turn on then he makes it plain. As the bible say I'm going to paraphrase(spirit knows the things of the spirit and likewise the flesh or the carnal things of the flesh, that which is spirit knows the spirit and that which is born flesh know that of the flesh. So if your not born again neither can you retain these thing in your natural mind.
  • Bryan Withey for verse 9
    The Doctrine of Christ here is the FACT that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh.Others would deny this and are identified as being of an Antichrist spirit.
  • Michael for verse 10
    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.
  • Mary Sadler
    If they come teaching any other doctrine except that God came in flesh as Jesus Christ they are an anti-Christ.
  • Gloria Robertson
    Verse 5 states we are to love one another and follow his commandments. How can we show the light to unbelievers if we should not receive them in our homes, or bother with them, especially if it is an immediate relative
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 10
    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).

    @Nunu,
    When John wrote the letter it was addressed to the church ''elect lady'' a productive mother with children [individual believers]. In concluding John being also a child amongst others sends regards of other children [individuals] and the mother [church].
  • Nunu
    Can you please help me understand verse 1, 2 and 5 ... Who/what does the word "Lady" reference to? Is it the church? If so, what about verse 13 "Sister" Thank you.
  • Lee martin
    amen. we are in sad times. but with the help of jesus and his mercy and grace. not all will be decieved. lord help the true church of jesus to rise in power as in the book of acts.
  • Steve hooper for verse 9
    The Apostles Doctrine Acts 2:42.Many churchs have wondered far away from the Apostles Doctrine.With the development of the Trinity Christain Religious World,the gospel of the Apostle and the Apostles Doctrine is labeled as Heresy.Thank-you.
  • Jewel Williams
    -I love knowing that I as an adult is also a child of God with an advocate by the name of Jesus.
  • Dr.John Prabhakar for verse 9
    'Doctrine of Christ means several things. Firstly, the Father and the Son aspect. Secondly, the teachings of
    christ as well as the Apostles doctrines. Thirdly, a little more teaching as to what Christ is to the church:
    1) Church is the Kingdom of God; and Christ is the King in every local church. He rules. No man.
    2) Church is the 'Body of Christ; and Christ it's Head. He controls. No man.
    3) Church is the 'Sheepfold'; and Christ the Shepherd. He is the 'Pastor'. No man.
    4) Church is the 'Temple of God'; and Christ its Chief Priest'.
    5) All in the church are God's servants(Ro.6:22); and Christ the Lord.
    This completes, more or less the Doctrine of Christ. This is my humble presentation, lovingly shared.
  • Jose f barajas for verse 5
    apostle John was happy about this cristian church to know the truth & love of God and his son Jesus Christ the worlds savior.But I still dont know which church he wrote to.phillipi or ephessians?
  • Debbie
    the most important thing to ask yourself is what did Jesus say? If its not in the bible its man-doctrine...we want to fashion ourselves after God we were made in his image.
  • Collie Matthew White
    So if i bring the doctrine, but know that jesus is inside of me. but technically he hasnt come in the flesh, Becouse i am Collie. Does that make me A Anti-Christ? Becouse i do like to deceive people. but it is love and the greater good is why i cannot just come out and say i know where the next True prophet and messiah is. Or should i just keep my mouth shut and wait for more signs?
