With warmth & tenderness John reminds his readers that it is the last hour. False teachers have arisen and left the church and the existing church is feeling discouraged. These antichrists want the Father but they don ‘t want Jesus. Many today practice a kind of Christless Christianity. Join us as John encourages these believers that they have the Word and the Spirit to enable them to stand firm in the truth of the Gospel (1 John 2:18-27)
