For 1many deceivers 2have gone out into the world, 3those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist.
Watch yourselves, 4so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but 5may win a full reward.
Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, 6does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching 7has both the Father and the Son.
If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, 8do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting,
for whoever greets him 9takes part in his wicked works.
