(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.

Brian Harvey's 1 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 9 on 9/28/2014, 3:23am...

This verse is about the problem of broken fellowship and this should not to be confused with sonship. As a child of God through the new birth I am eternally His child. Just as I am a child in the Harvey family forever. There were times though my fellowship was broken or strained when I was sinful or unappreciated my parents. The same is possible with God or brothers or sisters It 's then I need to be humble and honest and self examination with the help of the holy spirit tells me I am wrong. Then I obtain restoration by owning up to my sin my pride my faults, and enjoy the fellowship once again. I belive that if you read the chapter and ask does this fit with the rest ofcthe chapter and contextually is this explanation a fit? You can accept or dismiss this conclusion, moreover practice it! Behold what manner of love the Father has set before us that we should be called the children of God.


James Padilla's 1 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 5 on 9/27/2014, 8:23am...

God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. To walk in the light is to walk transparantly in the full exposure of His light allowing no darkness, no unrighteousness to go unchecked in our hearts and actions. To walk in the light does not necessarly mean that we are perfect in our intentions or actions but that when we hamartia miss the mark sin, we quickly look to the source where the glory of God is manifested, namely the cross of Christ where our sin and shame are not only exposed but judged and separated as far as the east is from the west. We now have nothing to hide, and while I may readily confess that I am a sinner I can also boldly say that I am justified and accounted righteous. This is how we walk in the light, and thus walk in God who is light. For in Him we live and move and have our being.

Jesus always love me


John's 1 John Chapter 1 comment on 8/30/2014, 8:52am...

Once we are saved, positionally we never sin, however, we have an enemy the flesh to fight the good fight of faith. This means we have choices with out condemnation. The confession of our sins is necessary to continue to have fellowship with our Blessed Savior. We will sin! however the more we practice the Word, the more we will overcome! Remember in Ezekiel He says I will put my Spirit within you and cause you to do my Statutes and you shall do my Judgements. For the one that needs deliverance on your addiction. Demand that it go out of your body in Jesus name! He gave us the power and authority over theses sins to leave and be healed James 5th chapter

Praise the lord that he shall protect us from all the evils in the world and that he shall protect our family from the temptations and prepare a place in heaven for us all,


Brian's 1 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 10 on 8/09/2014, 10:41am...

I have excepted his son,it was very glorious but since then I have went back to the past life of an addict. I know I 'm in the wrong, I want to live for Him but I 'm hidered by my addiction. What must I do to overcome? pray for me.


Vidash's 1 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 5 on 8/08/2014, 5:51pm...

God is the only one we should worship. John 3 16 says God so love the world that he gave himself to be crucify because of Me and you sins.


Sarah kobe's 1 John Chapter 1 comment on 7/23/2014, 9:50am...

I believe that god has something good for all of us if we simply believe and stand firm in the word because every solution is in the word and we also have to trust in his will because the will of god will never take you to a place wer the grace of god will never protect you and i believe that in every pain i have went through this year god has something good for me and his planns are better than our dreams.Thank lord for the love and protection you give me daily
