Most dear brethren, do not ye believe to each spirit, but prove ye the spirits, if they be of God; for many false prophets went out into the world.
In this thing the Spirit of God is known; each spirit that acknowledgeth that Jesus Christ hath come in flesh, is of God;
and each spirit that undoeth Jesus, is not of God. And this is antichrist, of whom ye have heard, that he cometh; and right now he is in the world.
Ye, little sons, be of God, and ye have overcome him; for he that is in you is more, than he that is in the world.
They be of the world, therefore they speak of the world, and the world heareth them.
We be of God; he that knoweth God, heareth us; he that is not of God, heareth not us. In this thing we know the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
Most dear brethren, love we together, for charity is of God; and each that loveth his brother, is born of God, and knoweth God.
He that loveth not, knoweth not God; for God is charity.
In this thing the charity of God appeared in us, for God sent his one begotten Son into the world, that we live by him.
