Bible: 1 John 2:18-25

Warning About False Teachers

2:18 Children, it is the last hour, and just as you heard that the antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists 1  have appeared. We know from this that it is the last hour. 2:19 They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us, because if they had belonged to us, they would have remained 2  with us. But 3  they went out from us 4  to demonstrate 5  that all of them do not belong to us. 6 

2:20 Nevertheless you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all know. 7  2:21 I have not written to you that 8  you do not know the truth, but that 9  you do know it, and that 10  no lie is of the truth. 2:22 Who is the liar but the person who denies that Jesus is the Christ 11 ? This one is the antichrist: the person who denies the Father and the Son. 2:23 Everyone who denies the Son does not have the Father either. The person who confesses the Son has the Father also. 12 

2:24 As for you, what you have heard from the beginning must remain 13  in you. If what you heard from the beginning remains in you, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father. 2:25 Now this 14  is the promise that he 15  himself made to 16  us: eternal life. 17
