Bible Commentary for 1 John 1:8

Wesley's Notes for 1 John 1:8


1:8 If we say - Any child of man, before his blood has cleansed us. We have no sin - To be cleansed from, instead of confessing our sins, #1Jo 1:9|, the truth is not in us - Neither in our mouth nor in our heart.


People's Bible Notes for 1 John 1:8


1Jo 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves. To say that we have reached a sinless state in which we no longer need the blood of Christ to cleanse us is a deception. This language is in square opposition to the claims of the "Perfectionists" of all ages.
