1 John 4
He warneth them not to believe all teachers, who boast of the Spirit, but to try them by the rules of the catholick faith:
1 John 4:1 Beloved! not in every spirit, believe ye, but test the spirits, whether they are, of God; because, many false prophets, have gone out into the world. 1 John 4:2 Hereby, do ye perceive the Spirit of God:every spirit that confesseth Jesus Christ as having come, in flesh, is, of God; 1 John 4:3 And, every spirit that doth not confess Jesus, of God, is not. And, this, is the [spirit] of the Antichrist, touching which ye have heard that it cometh: even now, is it, in the world, already. 1 John 4:4 Ye, are, of God, dear children, and have overcome them; because, greater, is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:5 They, are, of the world: For this cause, of the world, they speak, and the world, unto them, doth hearken. 1 John 4:6 We, are, of God: he that is getting to understand God, hearkeneth unto us,whoso is not of God, hearkeneth not unto us: from this, perceive wethe spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
and by many reasons exhorteth to brotherly love.
1 John 4:7 Beloved! let us be loving one another; because, love, is, of God, and, whosoever loveth, of God, hath been born, and is getting to understand God: 1 John 4:8 He that doth not love, doth not understand God, because, God, is, love. 1 John 4:9 Herein, hath the love of God in us, been made manifest, that, his only-begotten Son, God sent into the world, in order that we might live through him. 1 John 4:10 Herein, is love: not that, we, have loved God, but that, he, loved us, and sent forth his Son, as a propitiation concerning our sins. 1 John 4:11 Beloved! If, in this way, God, loved us, we also, ought to love, one another. 1 John 4:12 Upon God, hath no one, at any time, gazed: If we love one another, God, in us, abideth, and, his love, hath been perfected within us. 1 John 4:13 Hereby, perceive wethat, in him, are we abiding, and, he, in us,in that, of his Spirit, hath he given unto us. 1 John 4:14 And, we, for ourselves have gazed, and are bearing witnessthat, the Father, sent forth the Son, as Saviour of the world. 1 John 4:15 Whosoever shall confess, that, Jesus [Christ] is the Son of God, God, in him, abideth, and, he, in God. 1 John 4:16 And, we, have come to understand and to trust the love which, God, hath, in us. God, is, love; and, he that abideth in love, in God, abideth, and, God, in him [abideth]. 1 John 4:17 Herein, hath love with us, been made perfect,in order that, boldness, we might have in the day of judging,in that, just as, He, is, we also, are, in this world. 1 John 4:18 Fear, existeth not, in love, but, perfect love, casteth fear, outside; because, fear, hath correction: he that feareth, hath not been made perfect, in love. 1 John 4:19 We, love, because, he, first loved us: 1 John 4:20 If one should say, I love God, and should be hating, his brother, false, is he; for, he that doth not love his brother, whom he hath seen, God, whom he hath not seen, he cannot love! 1 John 4:21 And, this commandment, have we from him,that, he who loveth God, love, his brother also.
