(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.

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.

God shed his blood for us to be free of sin. We are now live because of God 's forgiveness. Jesus already fullfill the scriptures and thru his death and blood of Jesus we are saved. We must be Born Again in Spirit and invite God to dwell in our lives in order for us to be saved and free from the works of the defeated devil. There is a power in the name of Jesus just believed in him that He is the Son of Living God who always protect us, comfort us, provider and Healer. We already live with full of milk and honey because of Jesus. Jesus loves you keep praising him and thanking him for all the blessing he have given to us. Seek the Kingdom of God first and you will find the truth. All things that you need will be added unto you. He who loves Jesus will keep his commandments until rapture


Sonya Davis's 1 John Chapter 1 comment on 3/02/2015, 10:54am...

This is a very good scripture because it reminds the christian that is working on him or herself that no one is free of sin, but as with anything the comment made on 1 21 2015 at 11:37 am satan is still using his spawns to attack christians and that should not be what this site is about. True christians pray for one another and do not concern themselves with airing anothers sin bringing discord to a website that is devoted to true believers. A real friend doesn 't do this.
