Errors of the false Teachers, and their St. John,
different Sects, against the Docetæ—who
denied the Humanity of Christ, assert-
ing that his Body and Sufferings were
not real, but imaginary-against the Ce-
rinthians and Ebionites, who contended
that he was a mere Man, and that his
Divinity was only adventitious, and
therefore separated from him at his Pas-
sion,—and against the Nicolaitans, or
Gnostics, who taught that the Know-
ledge of God and Christ was sufficient
for Salvation; that being justified by
Faith, and freed from the Restraints of
the Law, they might indulge in Sin
with impunity-He cautions Christians
from being seduced by these Doctrines
and Practices, by condemning them in
the strongest Terms-He contrasts them
with the Truths and Doctrines of the
Gospel, in which they had been in-
structed, and in which they are exhorted

to continúe.
