1 John 5:13-21

MSG 13 My purpose in writing is simply this: that you who believe in God's Son will know beyond the shadow of a doubt that you have eternal life, the reality and not the illusion. NIV 13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. MSG 14 And how bold and free we then become in his presence, freely asking according to his will, sure that he's listening. NIV 14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. MSG 15 And if we're confident that he's listening, we know that what we've asked for is as good as ours. NIV 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him. MSG 16 For instance, if we see a Christian believer sinning (clearly I'm not talking about those who make a practice of sin in a way that is "fatal," leading to eternal death), we ask for God's help and he gladly gives it, gives life to the sinner whose sin is not fatal. There is such a thing as a fatal sin, and I'm not urging you to pray about that. NIV 16 If you see any brother or sister commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray and God will give them life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that you should pray about that. MSG 17 Everything we do wrong is sin, but not all sin is fatal. NIV 17 All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin that does not lead to death. MSG 18 We know that none of the God-begotten makes a practice of sin - fatal sin. The God-begotten are also the God-protected. The Evil One can't lay a hand on them. NIV 18 We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the One who was born of God keeps them safe, and the evil one cannot harm them. MSG 19 We know that we are held firm by God; it's only the people of the world who continue in the grip of the Evil One. NIV 19 We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. MSG 20 And we know that the Son of God came so we could recognize and understand the truth of God - what a gift! - and we are living in the Truth itself, in God's Son, Jesus Christ. This Jesus is both True God and Real Life. NIV 20 We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true by being in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life. MSG 21 Dear children, be on guard against all clever facsimiles. NIV 21 Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.
