First John:

This book begins by stating that Christ was "from the beginning" and further states that "God is Light; in Him there is no darkness at all." Important points include:

  1. "...the blood of Jesus...purifies us from all sin." (1 John 1:7)
  2. "If we claim we have not sinned, we make Him out to be a liar and His Word has no place in our lives." (1 John 1:10)
  3. "...if anybody does sin...One who speaks to the Father in our defense -- Jesus the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and...for the sins of the whole world." (1 John 2:1-2)
  4. "...your sins have been forgiven on account of His name (i.e., Jesus)." (1 John 2:12)
  5. "No one who is born of God (i.e, Christian) will continue to sin, because God's seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning because he has been born of God." (1 John 3:9)
  6. "And this is His command: to believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and to love one another ..." (1 John 3:23)
  7. "He that loveth not, knoweth not God; for God is love . In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. (1 John 4:8,9; from King James' Version)
  8. "Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him and he in God." (1 John 4:15; from King James' Version)
  9. "We love Him, because He first loved us." (1 John 4:19; from King James' Version)
  10. "And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." (1 John 5:11,12; from King James' Version)

Other advice: love your fellow man; beware of false teachers like the "antichrist" that will come near the world end.
