first John five everyone who believes
that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God and everyone who loves the Father
loves whoever has been born of him by this will know that we love the children
of God when we love God and obey His commandments for this is the love of God
that we keep his Commandments and His commandments are not burdensome for
everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world and this is the
victory that has overcome the world our faith who is it that overcomes the world
except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God this is he who came by
water and blood Jesus Christ not by the water only but by the water and the
blood and the Spirit is the one who testifies because the Spirit is the
truth for there are three that testify the spirit and the water and the blood
and these three agree if we receive the testimony of men the testimony of God is
greater for this is the testimony of God that he has borne concerning his son
whoever believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself whoever does
not believe God has made him a liar because he has not believed in the
testimony that God has born concerning his son and this is the testimony that
God gave us eternal life and this life is in his son whoever has the son has
life whoever does not have the son of God does not have life I write these
things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that
you have eternal life and this is the confidence that we have toward him that
if we ask anything according to his will he hears us and if we know that he hears
us and whatever we ask we know that we have the request
we have asked of him if anyone sees his brother committing a
sin not leading to death he shall ask and God will give him life to those who
commit sins that do not lead to death there is sin that leads to death I do
not say that one should pray for that all wrongdoing is sin but there is sin
that does not lead to death we know that everyone who has been born of God does
not keep on sinning but he who was born of God protects him and the evil one
does not touch you we know that we are from God and the
whole world lies in the power of the evil one
that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding so that we may
know Him who is true and who is true and His Son Jesus Christ
he is the true God and eternal life little children keep yourselves from
idols
