2 John

Walk According to His Commandments

The elder to the chosen lady and her children, whom I love in truth; and not only I, but also all who know the truth, for the sake of the truth which abides in us and will be with us forever: Grace, mercy and peace will be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.

I was very glad to find some of your children walking in truth, just as we have received commandment to do from the Father. Now I ask you, lady, not as though I were writing to you a new commandment, but the one which we have had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, that you should walk in it.

For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch yourselves, that you do not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward. [a]Anyone who [b]goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting; 11 for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds.

12 Though I have many things to write to you, I do not want to do so with paper and ink; but I hope to come to you and speak face to face, so that [c]your joy may be made full.

13 The children of your chosen sister greet you.

Nádej pre kazdého

Druhý Jánov List

Ja, starší, píšem Božej vyvolenej cirkvi a všetkým jej členom.

2-3 Milujem vás spolu so všetkými, ktorí poznali pravdu, čo žije v našich srdciach a zostane tu večne. A nielen pravda, ale aj láska, zľutovanie a pokoj od Boha Otca a Ježiša, jeho Syna.

Teším sa, že niektorí z vás žijú podľa Božích prikázaní.

Nebude to nič nové, pripomeniem len to, čo už dávno viete:

Milujme sa navzájom, ako nás tomu učil Ježiš Kristus.

Varovanie pred falošnými učiteľmi

Láska a poslušnosť sú našou jedinou ochranou pred zvodcami, ktorých je dnes všade plno. Kto popiera, že Ježiš Kristus je Boží Syn, ktorý sa stal človekom, je zvodca a Kristov nepriateľ.

Dbajte, aby nevyšlo nazmar to, čo sme spoločne vybojovali, a aby ste napokon o všetko neprišli.

Komu nestačí Kristovo učenie a púšťa sa do špekulácií, vzďaľuje sa od Boha. Kto sa Kristovho učenia pridŕža, je v spojení s Bohom Otcom aj so Synom.

10 Ak príde niekto s iným učením, zavrite pred ním dvere a nedajte mu príležitosť.

11 Kto mu ju dáva, stáva sa jeho spoluvinníkom.

12 Mám ešte mnohé na srdci, ale nechcem to zveriť papieru. Dúfam, že sa k vám dostanem a osobne sa pozhovárame a vzájomne potešíme.

13 Pozdravujú vás všetci tunajší kresťania.
