2 John 1-13
To accommodate those who deprave the doctrine of Christ injures our own orthodox witness.
To accommodate those who deprave the doctrine of Christ injures our own orthodox witness. To bid them Godspeed is to be a partaker of their corrupt deeds. Thus, John warns the matron that the only safeguard against terror is the ever-expanding knowledge of the truth, and obedience to it.
The ground of the Apostle’s love for the lady and her family was that they cleave to the truth. “Truth” occurs 5 times; “Commandment,” 4 times; and “Doctrine,” three, and so making the whole truth of God as our home (2 John 1:9) “abideth in the doctrine” is the adequate provision against all error.
