The IVP New Testament Commentary Series – Warning Against Deception (3:7)
Warning Against Deception (3:7)

The admonition do not let anyone lead you astray serves as a hinge between the sections (3:4-6, 7b-10) that comprise the longer unit (3:4-10). With these words the Elder warns his readers not to be led from the path of following God. They would be led astray if they were to think that righteousness need not find its expression in righteous conduct such as they saw in the life of Jesus himself (2:6; 3:5).
