Wesley's Notes for 1 John 5:11


5:11 And this is the sum of that testimony, that God hath given us a title to, and the real beginning of, eternal life; and that this is purchased by, and treasured up in, his Son, who has all the springs and the fulness of it in himself, to communicate to his body, the church, first in grace and then in glory.

    The bible tells us that we should know a tree by the fruit that it bares.......an apple tree will not bare bare figs and an orange tree will not bare apples. A man cannot serve two gods. Therefore a sinner pretending to be a Saint is still a sinner.

    How does Baptist theology and vv 18-19 relate? Can one be godly and a sinner at the same time? Can one be a sinning saint? Can one be " dead to sin" and still partake of ungodliness? Just wondering.

    does verse 15 talking about you can fall from grace and in that condition lose salvastion if not what does it mean

    This is an excellent book to help all Gods children understand his wonderful nature that the kenites would like to continue to hide from us.
    Don't be beguiled by them.
    Study to show yourself approved!
    Let God know you love him.

    Rose Anne Enriquez, It is not a sin to drink wine. It is a sin to be addicted to strong drink, and drunkeness.
    1 Timothy 5:23, Romans 14:21, Ephesians 5:18, Psalms 4:17, John 4:46, etc.
    There are many verses where God instructed some people not to drink wine.
    If you put the word wine in the "search words or verses" box you can read all verses the include the word wine.
