Bible: 1 John 1:9-2:2

1:9 But if we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous, 1  forgiving 2  us our sins and cleansing 3  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, 4  I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. 5 ) But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate 6  with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous One, 7  2:2 and he himself is the atoning sacrifice 8  for our sins, and not only for our sins but also for the whole world. 9
