True Christian Love

The Apostle John frequently mentioned true Christian love in his writings, but his presentation of Christian love was NOT the kind we hear today! As with the concise statement in 1 Cor. 13:6 where Paul wrote, Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth, John concurred, but in a different way. After exalting love, John then warned of false teachers to the place that the elect lady was told not to welcome such into her house church or share in their wicked work (2 John 11)! That was still an expression of Christian love, but not like the typical kind in our day. Again, real Christian love is based on God’s truth and doesn’t overlook dangerous teachings to the contrary. Is that the kind of love you have?
