1:9 Whosoever transgresses, and abides not in the doctrine of Christ, has not God. He that abides in the doctrine of Christ, he has both the Father and the Son. 1:10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 1:11 For he that bids him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. 1:12 Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full. (II John 1:9-12 KJV)
I have taken on this subject before in ‘Deceivers’ and thought I would look at it in another way but having it have the same result. There is usually more than one way to say something or do something and have it mean the same in case a person does not understand it the first time. Most wrong doings are the result of not understanding the situation the first time and it must be presented in an understanding way.
As is written in verse twelve, all these years I have written this blog attempting to give some insight into the Bible, God’s word, in hope you understand my thinking and that it is correct. My thinking may not be exactly like yours and my thinking may not even be in tuned to your interpretation. There are many sides to a statement and the comprehension depends on what you learned in the past, what you know by doing your own research, what you truly believe, and body language with voice choice.
Your body and voice choice can say something different than what you are saying. The same thing if a person is saying it to you. But, when you read something, please do yourself a favor and discover why the statement was written, do diligent research. Do not take everything that is written as Gospel, as if God wrote it Himself.
There is much evil out there and many people that are attempting to bring you to their side in order to do whatever for or with them. Not all people that are famous or have high importance are in God’s good graces. They can not prosper without help and a multitude beside them. Do not give them aide. Do your diligent research and do not take what they say at face value, as gospel.
I have seen many that know of people that have shown their true bad coloring and people still support them. Remember, because they say to jump off a cliff and fly does not mean you can fly because they said you could. Do your research and let them show you, prove it, not just talk it. Listen to every word and analyze if it is true or false (not that someone told you it is true or false).
I have been wrong, that is only being human, but I will own it when I am wrong and strive not to err again. The Devil is everywhere, and it is in their character to deceive you and tell you they are never wrong. Only the Lord Jesus Christ, who walked this earth, is never wrong and will always tell you the truth. Yet so many turn from Him and amble up to the people that tell lies and attempt to deceive everyone. Remember, do your research, and look at the results from every angle before you open your mouth to say an untruth.
