I tell you the truth, we talk about what we know, and we tell about what we have seen, but you don't accept what we tell you.
I have told you about things here on earth, and you do not believe me. So you will not believe me if I tell you about things of heaven.
The only one who has ever gone up to heaven is the One who came down from heaven -- the Son of Man.
"Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, the Son of Man must also be lifted up.
So that everyone who believes can have eternal life in him.
"God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son so that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life.
God did not send his Son into the world to judge the world guilty, but to save the world through him.
People who believe in God's Son are not judged guilty. Those who do not believe have already been judged guilty, because they have not believed in God's one and only Son.
They are judged by this fact: The Light has come into the world, but they did not want light. They wanted darkness, because they were doing evil things.
All who do evil hate the light and will not come to the light, because it will show all the evil things they do.
But those who follow the true way come to the light, and it shows that the things they do were done through God."
