2 John - Love and Obey

In the first four verses John talks about truth and not giving hospitality to false teachers.  Is there false teaching in the church today? Yes. Evolution is one of the major false religions and it forms the foundation for many of the others. Evolution has all of the characteristics John mentioned in the first four verses.

Now John has a request that is consistent with that truth, to love.  It is both an old commandment, and it is new because now Christ is the perfect model of this commandment. John then explains how to love. Love is obedience to God.  The chosen lady should be loving God and obeying God, so that she will not lose any of her rewards in heaven.
