2 John 1:8
Throughout history there have been false teachers and wolves in sheep’s clothing. Those who deny the authority of Jesus and spread false doctrines. John tells us to watch out for such people. Because following them and their twisted scriptures can cause us to lose our rewards. Not the reward of salvation, for that is secure through the blood of Jesus, but instead our spiritual rewards. John cautions that we need to always be on alert and check all we hear against what the Bible actually says. Abiding in Jesus means abiding in His Word. And the knowledge of God’s Word is the best defense against any attack of deceit from the Enemy!
