Love not ye the world, nor the things in the world; if any one doth love the world, the love of the Father is not in him,
because all that [is] in the world – the desire of the flesh, and the desire of the eyes, and the ostentation of the life – is not of the Father, but of the world,
and the world doth pass away, and the desire of it, and he who is doing the will of God, he doth remain – to the age.
Little youths, it is the last hour; and even as ye heard that the Antichrist doth come, even now Antichrists have become many – whence we know that it is the last hour;
out of us they went forth, but they were not of us, for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but – that they might be manifested that they are not all of us.
And ye have an anointing from the Holy One, and have known all things;
I did not write to you because ye have not known the truth, but because ye have known it, and because no lie is of the truth.
Who is the liar, except he who is denying that Jesus is the Christ? this one is the antichrist who is denying the Father and the Son;
every one who is denying the Son, neither hath he the Father, [he who is confessing the Son hath the Father also.]
Ye, then, that which ye heard from the beginning, in you let it remain; if in you may remain that which from the beginning ye did hear, ye also in the Son and in the Father shall remain,
and this is the promise that He did promise us – the life the age-during.
These things I did write to you concerning those leading you astray;
and you, the anointing that ye did receive from him, in you it doth remain, and ye have no need that any one may teach you, but as the same anointing doth teach you concerning all, and is true, and is not a lie, and even as was taught you, ye shall remain in him.
And now, little children, remain in him, that when he may be manifested, we may have boldness, and may not be ashamed before him, in his presence;
if ye know that he is righteous, know ye that every one doing the righteousness, of him hath been begotten.
