This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.
If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.
The one who loves his brother abides in the Light and there is no cause for stumbling in him.
I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and because no lie is of the truth.
As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.
You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin.
No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him.
No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer; and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.
If someone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.
We know that no one who is born of God sins; but He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him.
