Context Readings

God Is Love, So Love One Another

10 In this way it is clear who are the children of God and who are the children of the Evil One; anyone who does not do righteousness or who has no love for his brother, is not a child of God. 11 Because this is the word which was given to you from the first, that we are to have love for one another; 12 Not being of the Evil One like Cain, who put his brother to death. And why did he put him to death? Because his works were evil and his brother's works were good.
