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.
