I had an experience a while back with a fellow believer and a close friend (we played golf with each other regularly and lunch together about once a week) that I would like to share with you. We were both members of the same church and sang in the choir. This relationship was over a 25 year period. He got involved origionally in a"Jewish Messianic" group that eventually evolved into disavowing Christ. I asked him directly "Do you believe that Jesus Christ is God" His answer was "No, I believe God is God". Based on II John 9-10 I broke off relationship with him and have no contact with him at all for several years. I have friend and fellow believers who still socialize with him and make excuses for his behavior. I miss our relationship but I feel the scripture is very plain on this issue. I did not just stop without an explanation. I had lunch with him and showed him the scripture. he had no reply. He occasionally sends me greeting from mutual friends. Has anyone had a similar experience and have I misinterpreted the scripture?
