Context Readings

God Is Love, So Love One Another

10 And hereby are the sons of God known, and also the sons of the devil. All that work not righteousness, are not of God, nor he that loveth not his brother. 11 For this is the tidings, that ye heard at the beginning, that we should love one another: 12 and not be as Cain, which was of the devil and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? For his own deeds were evil, and his brother's righteous.
