III. Not Participating in Heresy
A. The Heretics
7 For many 1deceivers awent out into the world, those who 2do bnot confess Jesus Christ coming 3in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the 4antichrist.
8 1aLook to yourselves that you do not 2lose the 3things which we wrought, but that you may receive a full 4reward.
9 Everyone who 1goes beyond and does not abide in the 2teaching of Christ does anot have God; he who abides in the teaching, he 3has both the Father and the Son.
B. Not Sharing in the Heretical Works
10 If anyone comes to you and does anot 1bring this teaching, do bnot receive 2him into your house, and do not say to him, 3Rejoice!
11 For he who says to him, Rejoice, ashares in his 1evil works.
