Wesley's Notes for 1 John 1:10

1:10 Yet still we are to retain, even to our lives' end, a deep sense of our past sins. Still if we say, we have not sinned, we make him a liar - Who saith, all have sinned. And his word is not in us - We do not receive it; we give it no place in our hearts.

 

People's Bible Notes for 1 John 1:10

1Jo 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned. God says we have sinned. He declares "There is none righteous; no, not one". See Ro 3:10 Ps 14:4. We make him a liar. Hence, if we affirm that we are sinless, we make God a liar. NOTE.--It must be noted that these words concerning sin, found in 1Jo 1:8-10, are not addressed to Gentile sinners, but a generation which had grown up in the church. Indeed, of all the epistles, this is the only one which can truly be said to have been addressed to a Christian generation. Hence, it would naturally emphasize, not the unconverted sinner's need of pardon, but of the Christian's constant need of a pardoning Savior. It is the Christian who cannot say that he has no sin, and who must find pardon by confessing his sins to Christ (Ac 2:38) shows how the alien sinner may obtain remission (1Jo 1:9); shows how the Christian, when he sins, may obtain remission.

Themba's comment on 2011-03-24 12:26:05:

we mus keep on asking forgiveness from God in our daily basis because we sometimes do sins unintentionally

 

Dennis Clough's comment on 2011-01-05 23:09:48:

Contrary to popular views, this verse cannot be directed toward Christians. God's word is in Christians forever and cannot be driven out. Besides, the new nature in the Christian cannot sin.
