Departure Of The False Teachers

18 Young children, it is the last period. And as you have heard that the antichrist comes, so, now, there are many antichrists; whence you know that it is the last period. 19 They went away from us, but they were not of us. For, if they had been of us, they would have abode with us; but they went away, that they might be made manifest that they were not of us. 20 But you have an unction from the Holy One, and know all things.
