2 John - Bold Love (intro to 1 John)

Summary: 

An inevitability of close, faith-based relationships is faith-based conflict.  When it happens, how do we deal with it?  How do we determine what is true?  What do we do when truth and love seem to compete?  John's letters are often regarded as messages of love, but when one of John's churches faces major theological debate, his answer for how to love may surprise you.
