Testimony

In the wonderful third epistle of John we see the testimony of four individuals’; the apostle John, Gaius, Diotrephes, and Demetrius.  Three had a good testimony, one that bore witness to the truth, the truth about Jesus Christ found in the Holy Bible, the other had an evil testimony because he rejected the truth and refused to receive those who bore witness to the truth, the beloved apostles and saints of God.  2,049 more words
