Bible: 1 John 1:8-2:2

1:8 If we say we do not bear the guilt of sin, 1  we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. 1:9 But if we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous, 2  forgiving 3  us our sins and cleansing 4  us from all unrighteousness. 1:10 If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar and his word is not in us. 2:1 (My little children, 5  I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. 6 ) But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate 7  with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous One, 8  2:2 and he himself is the atoning sacrifice 9  for our sins, and not only for our sins but also for the whole world. 10
