1 John 1:1; 1 John 1:10; 1 John 2:5; 1 John 2:7; 1 John 2:14; 1 John 3:18
What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life -
If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.
but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him:
Beloved, I am not writing a new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning; the old commandment is the word which you have heard.
I have written to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one.
Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.
