In this conversation, Michael and Dr. Baylis talk about:
- The apostolic defense of this epistle
- Apostolic teaching as the foundation of the church
- The word of the Apostles v. of false teachers
- Who is John? (He’s not Jesus’ half-brother!)
- The unlimited expression of Christ’s atonement
- The New Covenant
- What it is to love the world
- How to define our identity
- “Doing” sin or “doing” righteousness
“John is saying: beware that you allow anything to infiltrate your trust in Jesus.
Be careful. Study the Apostolic teaching. Walk in step with Jesus Christ as the Light of the Father.”
