Bible: 1 John 3:8-10
3:8 The one who practices sin is of the devil, 1 because the devil has been sinning 2 from the beginning. For this purpose 3 the Son of God was revealed: to destroy 4 the works of the devil. 3:9 Everyone who has been fathered 5 by God does not practice sin, 6 because 7 God’s 8 seed 9 resides in him, and thus 10 he is not able to sin, because he has been fathered by God. 3:10 By this 11 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 12 – is not of God.
