In this podcast, pastor Ed is preaching from 3 John 9-11. Diotrephes is a prideful man. Prideful people who are malicious gossips oppose Christian hospitality. Perhaps John wrote a letter to the church, encouraging them to be hospitable toward traveling missionaries, but Diotrephes resisted it because of pride. He wanted to be first over them. The apostle then declared moral judgment against Diotrephes. His conduct was evil. Gaius was not to imitate this behavior. Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God, John observed.
