And we believe we do. You do not. GOD is the only true judge.

Where does this address evangelist - and evangelist is one who reaches out to spread the good news?

Here is the verse in 2 John that you paraphrased - we proclaim Christ, we proclaim him as Lord and we proclaim his teachings.

7Many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. 8Watch out that you do not lose what you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully. 9Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. 10If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take him into your house or welcome him. 11Anyone who welcomes him shares in his wicked work.

Here is Pet 19 - I do not have a clue how this applies to evangelism.

And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. 20Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation. 21For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.er

Liberal doesn't equal Christianity

The idea of Christianity in itself is conservative as the world teaches a person to sin but Christianity rejects it.

Jesus said...If you love me then obey my commandments.
There's no liberal interpretation there.

Either you do it or you don't.

We can get so caught up in condemning those that do not share our interpretations and sometimes the message seems to be "be a christian like me" instead of find Christ who is the way, the truth and life.
Amen. God bless.
