“Too Far”

May 24, 2018

 

2 John 9:  “Anyone who 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.”  The teaching of Christ is simple and clear: Love (v 5).  But for some that is not enough, and they want to move into what they call the “deep things of God”, which St. Paul says is “falsely called knowledge” (1 Timothy 6: 20).  The Gospel is not complicated to hear, but for those who don’t want to follow through with action, and thus move into true wisdom, understanding, and knowledge (Proverbs 3: 19-20), the continued search for these things outside of Christ is nothing but an attempt to escape from His requirements.
