John was concerned about a plague that was ravishing the churches that he so dearly cared for. But it was not a biological plague caused by a virus or bacteria; it was a spiritual plague caused by teaching that was opposed to Christ. It was not a plague that threatened loss of life in this world but a plague that threatened the loss of eternal life in the world to come. There was no debate over the treatment for the plague and no discussion about the effectiveness of vaccines. The cure was clear: truth.
