Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
1 John 3:14
We are conscious that we have come out of death into life because of our love for the brothers. He who has no love is still in death.
And let us have knowledge, let us go after the knowledge of the Lord; his going out is certain as the dawn, his decisions go out like the light; he will come to us like the rain, like the spring rain watering the earth.
Then Jesus said to the Jews who had faith in him, If you keep my word, then you are truly my disciples;
Then let us not be judges of one another any longer: but keep this in mind, that no man is to make it hard for his brother, or give him cause for doubting.
2 Peter 1:10
For this reason, my brothers, take all the more care to make your selection and approval certain; for if you do these things you will never have a fall:
Occasion of stumbling
But having no root in himself, he goes on for a time; and when trouble comes or pain, because of the word, he quickly becomes full of doubts.
A curse is on the earth because of trouble! for it is necessary for trouble to come; but unhappy is that man through whom the trouble comes.
And he said to his disciples, It is necessary for causes of trouble to come about, but unhappy is he by whom they come.
Why? Because they were not searching for it by faith, but by works. They came up against the stone which was in the way;
So that you may give your approval to the best things; that you may be true and without wrongdoing till the day of Christ;
But if a man goes about in the night, he may have a fall because the light is not in him.
By this it will be clear to all men that you are my disciples, if you have love one for another.
This is the law I give you: Have love one for another, even as I have love for you.
Go on loving your brothers in the faith.
