The First Epistle of John

According to tradition, this epistle was written by John the Evangelist, who is also John the Apostle.
The writing style is very similar to the Gospel of St. John.
Chapter 1
Jesus Christ is the Word of Life. God is light.
[7] But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
[8] If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
Chapter 2
Jesus Christ is our advocate with the Father.
[15] Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
[16] For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
[17] And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
Antichrists shall come in the last days. Whosoever denieth that Jesus is the Christ is an antichrist.
 Chapter 3
John teaches about becoming purified in Jesus Christ.
[1]Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
[2] Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
[3] And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
John also teaches that we must believe on the Son Jesus Christ and love one another.
Chapter 4
The Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. God is love.
[18] There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
[19] We love him, because he first loved us.
[20] If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
[21] And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
Chapter 5
Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God.
For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments.
[7] For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
[8] And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
The water refers to baptism.
Little children, keep yourselves from idols.
