ContextBeware of Deceivers
7For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 8Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have worked, but that we receive a full reward. 9Whoever transgresses, and stays not in the doctrine of Christ, has not God. He that stays in the doctrine of Christ, he has both the Father and the Son. 10If there come any to you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11For he that bids him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
