Obey Christ’s Commandments; Beware of Deceivers

To the elect lady and her children, whom I love in truth, and not only I, but also all those who have known the truth,

Unchecked Copy Box2Jo 1:3 - Grace, mercy, and peace will be with you[fn] from God the Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
