Bible: 1 John 3:6-10
3:6 Everyone who resides 1 in him does not sin; 2 everyone who sins has neither seen him nor known him. 3:7 Little children, let no one deceive you: The one who practices righteousness 3 is righteous, just as Jesus 4 is righteous. 3:8 The one who practices sin is of the devil, 5 because the devil has been sinning 6 from the beginning. For this purpose 7 the Son of God was revealed: to destroy 8 the works of the devil. 3:9 Everyone who has been fathered 9 by God does not practice sin, 10 because 11 God’s 12 seed 13 resides in him, and thus 14 he is not able to sin, because he has been fathered by God. 3:10 By this 15 the children of God and the children of the devil are revealed: Everyone who does not practice righteousness – the one who does not love his fellow Christian 16 – is not of God.
