6 Anyone who is in him does no sin; anyone who is a sinner has not seen him and has no knowledge of him. 7 My little children, let no man take you out of the true way: he who does righteousness is upright, even as he is upright; 8 The sinner is a child of the Evil One; for the Evil One has been a sinner from the first. And the Son of God was seen on earth so that he might put an end to the works of the Evil One.
