Love and Truth

Posted by Matt Postiff April 5, 2016 on Matt Postiff's Blog under GeneralĀ 

I read this morning:

And now I ask you...that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments...For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. (2 John 5-7, ESV)

The juxtaposition of three ideas caught my attention: loving one another, keeping His commandments, and "because" many deceivers are out there not acknowledging the coming of Christ. Not only is the presence of deceivers a motivation to emphasize love in the Christian community, but also such deception is far from the kind of obedient love that John says characterizes the true believer.

Love and deception don't go together; love and deception on the doctrine of Christ really don't go together.
