    Ann; I know that this false teaching is rampant in the Churches, and a favorite of many; but we do not all sin every day! That's a lie from the devil, who wants to corrupt the children of God and only opposes and contradicts the word of God. Jesus cleanses us from all sin, and releases us from all our bondage to sin. That is the Glad Tidings of our salvation foretold by all the Prophets! John 8:36
  • Ann
    Jesus Christ died for our sins, 1 Corinthians 15:3, but we all still sin everyday, we must confess our sins to him daily, and repent of them. Ask the Lord to forgive us of our sins and repent of them, and please do not go and commit the same sin over again that God has already forgiven us for. Amen.
  • Randy
    Hey Walter...may the Good Lord bless you! I think it means Jesus put to death sin in the flesh for us. So if Jesus took away all of our fleshly sins, all that's left is to believe we are not sinners anymore because of Him. Isn't that believing Him fully?
  • A disciple
    Dear Walter; That Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, means that He came into the world by being born of a woman. The difference between Him and everyone else whose ever been born, is that He existed forever before that in heaven as God, and He didn't have an earthly father like we do; but was miraculously conceived in the womb by the Holy Spirit. In Genesis 3:15 God declared why Christ would come.

    VERSE 7 SAYS JESUS IS COME IN THE FLESH WHAT THAT MEANS
  • Kemi
    We are enjoined in this great chapter to beware of wolves in sheep's clothing who preach false doctrines and does not profess the name of Jesus Christ. We are also enjoined to show love of Christ towards one another which is a character displayed by Jesus Christ himself by dying for our sins. May the Lord help us to do his will at all times in Jesus name. Amen
  • Randy
    The flesh profits nothing! Make no provision for the flesh! Now there is no more condemnation for those in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh! Jesus condemned sin in the flesh for us!!! For as much then as Christ has suffered in the flesh for us, arm yourselves with the same mind. For he that has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin! By faith are we saved. Not by works.
  • Paulette clemins
    I think it's an awesome message
  • Mina
    Through fasting and prayers
  • A disciple
    W, "How do you put up a fight against your desires of the flesh?" What is it in a man, who considers his ways, and turns to God and repents? that he will soften and change his mind and heart, to convert and to do no more sin? This is what is meant by "holding the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end;" that we don't let those things slip! Use force in your mind! Speak the Scripture!
  • Wanda Payne
    You fight against the desires of the flesh by submitting to The Lord every day. Tell Him you know that you desperately need Him. Read your Bible OUT LOUD every day. PRAY every day. Stop watching things on TV , newspapers, internet,etc., that you know are designed to pull you into wrong thinking and wrong actions. Also tell your flesh NO we are not doing that.
  • Nate
    read James ch 4 verses 5-8 ( you draw near unto God by reading and medataing upon his word
  • Wayne
    How do you put up a fight against your desires of the flesh?
  • Brianna
    Vs. 6 If we truly love Jehovah then we will make an effort to serve him whole souled. Sometimes our fleshly desires work against us, but we must put up a fight to resist them. BY doing so, God can bless us, and we can have a free flow of Holy Spirit.
  • Irene123
    V. 10 - this verse refers to those who just come to you, uninvited, nor have you PRAYED for them to be there, that bring a different doctrine. We can and are to witness to ANYONE, but ONLY in the Lord's leading - through prayer. If you're in a store and you 'feel' a 'tug' towards someone - that's God letting you know this person will be receptive to His message - done GENTLY, with wisdom, love.
  • Judy Conn
    I agree with Patricia Chance but first we need to really get into the right bible which is the KJ and study it. I thought I knew the bible because I listened to my pastor. But I did not check up on all that he said and I should have because I am recently finding through really getting into the study of the Gods word that he was wrong on so many things. So be very, very careful who you listen to.
  • Reginald Carroll
    I think we should hold fast to the holy teachings of the bible,a be holy as Christ has commanded us to be ,love not the world neither the things in the world
  • Gloria Pray
    I gain knowledge of where it is written in the bible of a none believer" of JESUS CHRIST" 1 John 10" I had spoken of it on Saturday 2/6/16 to a friend, but I thought it were in the book of JAMES: ONE WORD "AMEN"
  • Word
    Deborah..who would be the "us" you speak of John forbidding? Re-read Verse 1 and 13?..... "The elder unto the elect lady and her children" Is that you? See 1 John 5:13 and please think deeply every day why that indeed is written to "believers". Us. Note it is not written to non believers!! "Know" why. It is why He wrote it to them, us. "Ye" In that verse would be the believer. Eternal. GLory to God. Thank you Jesus. Ps are you going to tell me PETER found your children walking in truth? Context Light.
  • Garry
    Many Christians take take verse 11 to mean that we should start judging people left and right but I believe that to be a misinterpretation. This verse is simply saying that we should not accept false doctrine and that we shouldn 't wish them well as they spread their false doctrine. In other words I simply don 't say God bless you if I believe that you are spreading a false doctrine.
  • Cbaux for verse 7
    I think this is silly, when you put the word deceiver up, my first thought Jacob-deceiver so your saying Jacob was an anti-Christ? Anyone can pick words and make them say what you want them to just by going from one language to another. So if your going to use the word in the NT you should say so.
  • Patricia Chance
    It 's telling us to study the word of God because so many false teachers and deceivers are practicing deceit and not basic on the true word of God.
  • Sateki for verse 6
    Obeying the words of GOD that is love, meaning you will have to forget what you love in this world and you have to put GOD first in everything. Allow him to become the captain of daily journey.
  • Reinarudo Watanabe

    Interesting to me was the fact "ministers " would come to my house to try and get me to understand the Ten Commandments had been changed and the 7th no longer applied. I had been raised in these ministers ' church with the Ten Commandments hanging on the wall of that church yet when I discovered the Seventh Day Sabbath was God 's sign of creation and that Jesus did not change any part of the Law, these very ministers came to convince me otherwise. The interesting part of all this was that it was these ministers who left my house confused because they could not provide Scripture references to counter the Scripture referrences presented to them. I remember when I was first studying the Bible FOR MYSELF and had many questions. An evangelist from Iran visited my house, stayed two hours and answered every single question I presented with straight Scripture. I discovered about a week later he had not even remembered talking with me because he and the Pastor he was visiting had been working long hours that day. However, it was the Holy Spirit who answered all my questions because not one answer came from this evangelist 's mouth. It all came from the Bible!

    The elder, to the elect lady. Let us love one another as the Father commands. Do not welcome false teachers. I hope to come to you.
  • Abel Subramony
    It tells us we must not be deceived by false doctrine.How will we know if it is false doctrine if we do not read our bible and understand it.First we need to read and understand the bible so that the false preachers will not mislead us.Once we read and understand and believe then we can be assured that we receive and know GOD the father and his son the LORD JESUS CHRIST.
  • Annabella for verse 7
    I love this verse , It tells things just the way they are and gives me much insight
  • Dominique Carson
