(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.

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

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.

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


Steve's 1 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 9 on 6/18/2015, 4:18pm...

I believe that we must confess all our sins to God. I don 't believe that this falls under works. I believe this is out of love for what Christ has done for us on the cross and to repent of our sins which is to turn from sin and to turn to God. This is not works this is choice. We do this out of conviction of our sin because God is in us.


Mario's 1 John Chapter 1 comment on 6/13/2015, 1:30pm...

If this scripture was for believers why does verse 8 say " If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. " If it was to believers, they would not say I have no sin and they would know that they were sinners, now they are not. Jesus took our sins before the foundations of the earth. If the old testament the Israelite had to ask forgiveness their sins once a year, why would Jesus a better sacrifice, done it once and for all. So why must we ask forgiveness every day, every month, every year, Does this mean that we do not believe that Jesus did completely take our sins, this means unbelief, so then this means that you have no salvation if you do NOT believe that Jesus is our savior. Jesus is coming back for hid bride not to deal with sin. Jesus dealt with sin once and for all. Believe and thank him and glorify him, forever and ever.
