Not Abiding

“Everyone transgressing and not abiding in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. The one abiding in the doctrine of Christ, this one has the Father and the Son” (2 John 1:9).

Tolerant Calvinist: It is Jesus who saves. Not perfect doctrine or perfectionistic abiding in doctrine.

Christian: It’s not about perfection. The doctrine of Christ has been revealed with sufficient clarity to identify and distinguish between the one true Christ and the myriad of false christs. Those who believe they began their “Christian life” with a “christ” who died for everyone without exception, have YET TO BEGIN in the doctrine of Christ. Thus, they do not have God.
