1 John

Just a brief note today as I was away preaching then traveling home. I love the Apostle John's writings in Scripture more and more as time goes by. I love his Christocentric beginnings (both to his Gospel and to the letter, 1 John, which was intended to be read as a circular to the churches.

And I love it because it is timeless. John was confronting the same errors that the church is confronting today, although the enemy has dressed them up in different clothing. It was early Gnosticism then, and the false teaching became more fully orbed in the 2nd and 3rd centuries. Now here at the beginning of the 21st Century (and possibly the end of the age), we find ourselves confronted again by some of the same false teachings confronted by John and his fellow Apostles.

And no matter what, the Word of God stands. It always will.
