2 John

2 John 1:10-11

10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; 11 for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds.



If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take them into your house or welcome them.
If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching but diminishes or adds to the doctrine of Christ, do not receive or welcome them into your house, and do not give them a greeting or any encouragement.

For anyone who welcomes them shares in their wicked work.
For the one who gives them a greeting, who encourages them or wishes them success, unwittingly participates in his evil deeds.

2 John 1:9

Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son.



Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God.
Anyone who runs on ahead and does not remain in the doctrine of Christ, one who is not content with what He taught, does not have God.

But whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.
But the one who continues to remain in the teaching of Christ does have God, he has both the Father and the Son.

2 John 1:7

For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.



Many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world.
Many deceivers, heretics, posing as Christians, have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge and confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh, bodily form.

Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.
This person, the kind who does this is the deceiver and the antichrist, the antagonist of Christ.
