Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
And we have known and believed the charity that God has in us. God is charity, and he that abides in charity abides in God, and God in him.
In this the charity with us is made perfect, that we may have confidence in the day of judgment, that as he is, so are we in this world.
In charity there is no fear; but charity that is perfect casts out fear; because fear has torment; from which he that fears is not complete in charity.
We love him, because he first loved us.
If anyone says, I love God and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he that does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?
And we have this commandment from him, That he who loves God loves his brother also.
