3 John 1: Those who Love Truth + Summary of 3 John
John writes to Gaius and the members of the Church explaining that he has; “…no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.” (3 John 1:4) This is the same way the Jesus Christ and God the Father feel when they see us walking in the truth and light.
John explains that he would write to Diotrephes, who loved to have dominion over the church and the members. This man, would change words and deceive many… this is the start of important doctrinal changes that would eventually lead to the formation of 100’s if not thousands of churches and religions worldwide today. John explains that he; “…had many things to write…” (3 John 1:13) but would not, and would rather speak in person to the members of the church. This goes to show that the Bible does not contain all the words of the prophets, or apostles. It is a general account, but not a complete and accurate account. The Bible is in fact the word of God, but is not 100% perfect, due to the fact that good and evil men changed the words slowly. This chapter of the Bible proves that this happened from the start.
