1John 2
New Living Translation
2My dear children, I am writing this to you so that you will not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate who pleads our case before the Father. He is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous.G3450G5040G5023G1125G5213G3363G264G3363G2532G1437G5100G264G2192G3875G4314G3962G2424G5547G1342 2He himself is the sacrifice that atones for our sins—and not only our sins but the sins of all the world.G2532G846G2076G2434G4012G2257G266G1161G3756G4012G2251G3440G235G2532G4012G3650G2889 3And we can be sure that we know him if we obey his commandments.G2532G1722G5129G1097G3754G1097G846G1437G5083G846G1785 4If someone claims, "I know God," but doesn't obey God's commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth.G3004G1097G846G2532G5083G3361G846G1785G2076G5583G2532G225G2076G3756G1722G5129 5But those who obey God's word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him.G1161G3739G302G5083G846G3056G1722G5129G230G5048G26G2316G5048G1722G5129G1097G3754G2070G1722G846 6Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.G3004G3306G1722G846G3784G846G2532G3779G4043G2531G1565G4043

A New Commandment

7Dear friends, I am not writing a new commandment for you; rather it is an old one you have had from the very beginning. This old commandment—to love one another—is the same message you heard before.G80G1125G3756G2537G1785G5213G235G3820G1785G3739G2192G575G746G3820G1785G2076G3056G3739G191G575G746 8Yet it is also new. Jesus lived the truth of this commandment, and you also are living it. For the darkness is disappearing, and the true light is already shining.G3825G2537G1785G1125G5213G3739G2076G227G1722G846G2532G1722G5213G3754G4653G3855G2532G228G5457G2235G5316 9If anyone claims, "I am living in the light," but hates a Christian brother or sister, that person is still living in darkness.G3004G1511G1722G5457G2532G3404G846G80G2076G1722G4653G2193G737 10Anyone who loves another brother or sister is living in the light and does not cause others to stumble.G25G846G80G3306G1722G5457G2532G2076G3756G4625G1722G846 11But anyone who hates another brother or sister is still living and walking in darkness. Such a person does not know the way to go, having been blinded by the darkness.G1161G3404G846G80G2076G1722G4653G2532G4043G1722G4653G2532G1492G3756G4226G5217G3754G4653G5186G846G3788 12I am writing to you who are God's children because your sins have been forgiven through Jesus.G1125G5213G5040G3754G266G863G5213G1223G846G3686G1223 13I am writing to you who are mature in the faith because you know Christ, who existed from the beginning. I am writing to you who are young in the faith because you have won your battle with the evil one.G1125G5213G3962G3754G1097G575G746G1125G5213G3495G3754G3528G4190G1125G5213G3813G3754G1097G3962 14I have written to you who are God's children because you know the Father. I have written to you who are mature in the faith because you know Christ, who existed from the beginning. I have written to you who are young in the faith because you are strong. God's word lives in your hearts, and you have won your battle with the evil one.G1125G5213G3962G3754G1097G575G746G1125G5213G3495G3754G2075G2478G2532G3056G2316G3306G1722G5213G2532G3528G4190

Do Not Love This World

15Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you.G25G3361G2889G3366G1722G2889G1437G5100G25G2889G26G3962G2076G3756G1722G846 16For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.G3754G3956G1722G2889G1939G4561G2532G1939G3788G2532G212G979G2076G3756G1537G3962G235G2076G1537G2889 17And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.G2532G2889G3855G2532G1939G846G1161G4160G2307G2316G3306G1519G165

Warning about Antichrists

18Dear children, the last hour is here. You have heard that the Antichrist is coming, and already many such antichrists have appeared. From this we know that the last hour has come.G3813G2076G2078G5610G2532G2531G191G3754G500G2064G2532G3568G1096G4183G500G3606G1097G3754G2076G2078G5610 19These people left our churches, but they never really belonged with us; otherwise they would have stayed with us. When they left, it proved that they did not belong with us.G1831G1537G2257G235G2258G3756G1537G2257G1063G1487G2258G1537G2257G302G3306G3326G2257G235G2443G5319G3754G1526G3756G3956G1537G2257 20But you are not like that, for the Holy One has given you his Spirit, and all of you know the truth.G2532G5210G2192G5545G575G40G2532G1492G3956 21So I am writing to you not because you don't know the truth but because you know the difference between truth and lies.G1125G3756G1125G5213G3754G1492G3756G225G235G3754G1492G846G2532G3754G3956G3756G5579G2076G1537G225 22And who is a liar? Anyone who says that Jesus is not the Christ. Anyone who denies the Father and the Son is an antichrist.G5101G2076G5583G1508G720G3754G2424G2076G3756G5547G3778G2076G500G720G3962G2532G5207 23Anyone who denies the Son doesn't have the Father, either. But anyone who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.G3956G720G5207G2192G3761G3962G3670G5207G2192G3962G2532 24So you must remain faithful to what you have been taught from the beginning. If you do, you will remain in fellowship with the Son and with the Father.G3306G3767G3306G1722G5213G3739G5210G191G575G746G1437G3739G191G575G746G3306G1722G5213G5210G2532G3306G1722G5207G2532G1722G3962 25And in this fellowship we enjoy the eternal life he promised us.G2532G3778G2076G1860G3739G846G1861G2254G166G2222 26I am writing these things to warn you about those who want to lead you astray.G5023G1125G5213G4012G4105G5209 27But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don't need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true—it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ.G2532G5545G3739G5210G2983G575G846G3306G1722G5213G2532G5532G2192G3756G2443G5100G1321G5209G235G5613G846G5545G1321G5209G4012G3956G2532G2076G227G2532G2076G3756G5579G2532G2531G1321G5209G3306G1722G846

Living as Children of God

28And now, dear children, remain in fellowship with Christ so that when he returns, you will be full of courage and not shrink back from him in shame.G2532G3568G5040G3306G1722G846G2443G3752G5319G2192G3954G2532G3361G153G575G846G1722G846G3952 29Since we know that Christ is righteous, we also know that all who do what is right are God's children.G1437G1492G3754G2076G1342G1097G3754G3956G4160G1343G1080G1537G846
