1 John 2:2-4 The Passion Translation (TPT)
The New Commandment
3 Here’s how we can be sure that we’ve truly come to know God: if we keep his commands.[c] 4 If someone claims, “I have come to know God by experience,” yet doesn’t keep God’s commands, he is a phony and the truth finds no place in him.
1 John 2:2-4 New International Version (NIV)
2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
Love and Hatred for Fellow Believers
3 We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands. 4 Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person.
