Truth and Deception

4I was very glad to find some of your children walking in truth,a in keeping with a command we have received from the Father. 5So now I ask you, dear lady — not as if I were writing you a new command, but one we have had from the beginning — that we love one another.a 6This is love:a that we walk according to his commands.b This is the command as you have heard it from the beginning: that you walk in love.A

7Many deceivers have gone out into the world; they do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh.a This is the deceiver and the antichrist.b 8Watch yourselves so that you don’t lose what weA have worked for, but that you may receive a full reward.a 9Anyone who does not remain in Christ’s teachinga but goes beyond it does not have God.b The one who remainsc in that teaching, this one has both the Fatherd and the Son.e 10If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receivea him into your home, and do not greet him; 11for the one who greets him sharesa in his evil works.b


12Though I have many things to write to you,a I don’t want to use paper and ink. Instead, I hope to come to you and talk face to face so that our joyb may be complete.

13The children of your elect sister send you greetings.
