					Now this is the message we have
heard from Him and declare to
you: God is light, and there is
absolutely no darkness in Him. If
we say, ‘We have fellowship with
Him and walk in darkness we are
lying and are not practicing the
truth.
But if we walk in the light as
He Himself is in the light, we
have fellowship with one
another and blood of Jesus
His son cleanses us from all
sin. If we say ‘We have no
sin,’ we are deceiving
ourselves, and the truth is not
in us.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful
and righteous to forgive us our sins
and cleanse us from all
unrighteousness. If we say, ‘We
have not sinned’ we make Him a liar,
and His word is not in us.
What we have seen and heard
we also declare to you, so
that you may have fellowship
along with us and indeed our
fellowship is with the Father
and with His Son Jesus
Christ.
God is light and there is
absolutely no darkness in
Him.
Two Misconceptions of Man
1. Man can fellowship with God and still
walks in sin. Sin does not matter.

(vs. 6-7) If we say, ‘We have fellowship with
Him,’ and walk in darkness, we are lying
and are not practicing the truth. But if we
walk in the light as He Himself is in the light,
we have fellowship with one another, and
the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us
from all sin.
2. Man is not totally sinful and
   depraved.
   If we say, ‘We have no sin,’
   we are deceiving ourselves,
   and the truth is not in us.
