2 John 1:10-11

Context
1:10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house and do not give him any greeting, 1  1:11 because the person who gives him a greeting shares in his evil deeds. 2 

1 sn Do not give him any greeting does not mean to insult the person. It means “do not greet the person as a fellow Christian” (which is impossible anyway since the opponents are not genuine believers in the author’s opinion).

2 sn Shares in his evil deeds. Giving a public greeting could be understood by an onlooker to suggest agreement with the (false) teaching of the opponents and is thus prohibited by John.
