(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.

I am using this passage on a friend who is currently pretending that everything is wonderful. Hidden sin is keeping her in misery. I learned that confessing is taking out the trash. If you do not, the trash remains inside and it will smell, and even make the place the visage look bad.

A believer lives righteously to the extent he is abiding in Christ Who lives within the realm of that believer s righteous spirit . In fact, 1 John 1:9 makes it clear that a believer s soul can be cleansed of all unrighteousness! Therefore, it is possible for a believer to live consistently righteous i.e., perfect , to the extent his heart is clean of sin 1 John 1:7.

Issak's 1 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 7 on 12/14/2014, 10:02am...

People think that because the Lord died for our sins, they have "carte Blanche " to go on sining is like the Lord pays for our past present and future sins I am ok going practicing sinful ways, but remember when people came to the Lord saying ! oh Lord forgive my sins...! then Jesus will say your sins are forgiven....but just before they where out of the door he will add " now go and sin no more "....!!

Sin does not effect your relationship with God you will always be His child sin will mess up your fellowship with God and others around you. You lose closeness with God and others. But we can get it back when we confess our sins and turn from them through the Blood of Jesus and confessing our wrong Yes God knows what I did , But He wants us to acknowledge it for ourselves . He wants us me to be honest and open with Him and myself . Praise God for His wonderful gift. He doesn 't throw me out when I sin. I am learning to run to Him when I mess up.

That means all was written through eye witness


Tony's 1 John Chapter 1 comment on 11/25/2014, 3:02pm...

The first chapter of I John is directed to those in the church "Gnostic " who didn 't believe in the material body of Christ and therefore, deeds done in the flesh never amounted to sin, because we are immaterial. I Jn. 1 9 is not directed to Christians. Once Christ forgave me of my sins at the cross, it included past, present and future. Read I Jn. 2 12 John declared that the Christians were forgiven. If ever I am not forgiven, then I am under wrath. That my friend can never happen. Christ bore it all.
