(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.

God is ready to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness if we confess our sins

The word of God is truly the only way ,that if we submit to them it bring us closer to love God.


Amos Meck's 1 John Chapter 1 comment on 4/08/2015, 10:40pm...

When there was nothing on the earth , the word of God was there.


Philip Surridge's 1 John Chapter 1 comment on 4/04/2015, 3:19am...

I beleave at sometime in our lives God gives everyone the opportunity , to recognise his presence. And is always available to accept us . That is the message , That is the good news , those of us who by "Gods Grace " have recognised the opportunity and have asked him to come into our lives know that the blood of Jesus Christ his son Cleanseth us from all sin, as it says in the Gospel " Not by what We have done because we we are all sinners, it is by Gods Grace so we hold on to gods promise and are sermon of his salvation , amen


John Madden's 1 John Chapter 1 comment on 3/19/2015, 1:41pm...

also he was refuting the false teaching of the which they concluded that all matter was evil including the body so they were saying i have fellowship with god but john says ,no they were walking in darkness, because they had no truthin them ,in reality the body is dead because of sin .but we are topresent our selves to god a liveing sacrifice,true believers desire to dwell in the light.not in darkness


John madden's 1 John Chapter 1 comment on 3/18/2015, 9:54am...

yes its all by grace that were saved.,but john is saying here if some one says thier walkingin the lite.which means liveing in the lite .and liveing in the dark the truth is not in them.thier lieing which means thier not liveing in the lite.god is lite no darkness at by grace some live in the lite.others say they are but walk live in darkness.liveing in the lite is the result of grace its not a work but a result.liveing in darkness is a result of no truth in them


John madden's 1 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 6 on 3/14/2015, 9:43pm...

its true light and darkness are two diffrent ways of life .one liveing in the lite one liveing in darkness...some take these verses and try to mske them say we.can live in the dark and just confess and move on..


Carlos's 1 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 9 on 3/14/2015, 12:49pm...

salvation is not by works but by grace. only the blood of jesus can cleansed sins. if you feel that only by repentance can you be cleansed then what you are saying is that sin still has control over your destiny and that is not possible since jesus defeated sin when he was resurrected. it is witten "sin shall have no dominion over you ". this does not mean that you will not sin but that sin does not determine your future.
