(this is a scan from the exact, authentic, original 1611 'HE' King James Bible)

1 That which was from þe beginning, which wee haue heard, which wee haue seene with our eyes, which wee haue looked vpon, and our hands haue handled of the word of life.

2 (For the life was manifested, and we haue seene it, and beare witnes, and shew vnto you that eternall life which was with the Father, and was manifested vnto vs.)

3 That which wee haue seene and heard, declare we vnto you, that ye also may haue felowship with vs; and truely our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Sonne Iesus Christ.

4 And these things write we vnto you, that your ioy may be full.

5 This then is the message which we haue heard of him, and declare vnto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkenesse at all.

6 If we say that we haue felowship with him, and walke in darkenesse, we lie, and doe not the trueth.

7 But if wee walke in the light, as he is in the light, wee haue fellowship one with another, and the blood of Iesus Christ his Sonne clenseth vs from all sinne.

8 If we say that we haue no sinne, we deceiue our selues, and the trueth is not in vs.

9 If we confesse our sinnes, hee is faithfull, & iust to forgiue vs our sinnes, and to cleanse vs from all vnrighteousnesse.

10 If we say that we haue not sinned, wee make him a liar, and his word is not in vs.

Bonyah Isaac's 1 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 9 on 8/21/2015, 8:52pm...

Jesus died once and for all men the blood atone for the sins of the world and bring them into the body of Christ through repentance,confession and baptism. Acts 2:38 . Being in the body of Christ doesnt grant someone autmatic salvation If all our sins namely past,present and future were forgiven when we became part of the body,why then should we try to live a holy life? Sin is the transgression of Law,so if all sins had been forgiven on the day we became part of Christ body,why then should we continue to obey His Laws?? Hebrew 5:8 states that "Jesus is the source of eternal salvation for all who OBEY him" Why shoul I then Obey if all my sins past,present and future had been forgiven?? The verse clearly shows that we can sin and hence must confess our sins for the blood to atone for us. Psalm 32:3 5 When one fail to acknowledge and confess his sins,then the blood doesn't work for him This is the one reason why Jesus is seated at God's right hand,to intercede on our behalf when we sin through His blood. Rom.8:34 .

Dan's 1 John Chapter 1 comment on 7/05/2015, 5:50pm...

verse 3 says they have fellowship with the father and his son Jesus Christ and their desire is that we may also have that same fellowship with them. verse 5 says God is Light and in him is no Darkness at all in 3:23 your given two commandments one is to believe on the name of his son Jesus Christ and 2 is to love one another as he gave commandment verse 3:24 says that if you keep these commandments then God who is light will dwell in you and you will dwell in him if you walk in darkness you are not keeping his commandments then he there for does not dwell in you and you have no fellowship with him and are a liar 2 :22 says Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ he is anti Christ that denies the father and the son then you have no fellowship with god and are walking in darkness because god does not dwell in you 1:7 says that if you walk in the the light meaning you keep his commandments then he dwells in you and you have fellowship with him and his son you might have missed that it says fellowship one with another


John madden's 1 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 6 on 7/02/2015, 7:44pm...

We cant abide in darkness if we are God's children because in him is no darkness at all. If we say dont live in the lite were living in darkness.


Dd's 1 John Chapter 1 comment on 6/19/2015, 1:40pm...

Is God able to forgive all my unrighteousness? If someone gets an unbiblical divorce, and is remarried is God able to forgive this sin?
