If any one says, I love God, and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he that loves not his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?
He that says, I have known him, and keeps not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him;
He that says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness till now.
And whoever has the goods of the world and sees his brother have need, and withholds his compassions from him, how continues the love of God in him?
No one has ever seen God. If we love one another, God continues in us and his love is perfected in us.
but he that hates his brother is in darkness, and walks in darkness, and knows not where he goes, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.
whom not having seen you love, in whom believing though now you see him not you rejoice with joy unspeakable and glorious,
If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie and observe not the truth;
