3 And every spirit which acknowledges not Jesus Christ having come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that of antichrist which ye have heard comes; and now is already in the world. 4 Ye are of God, little children, and have conquered them: for greater is he in you, than he in the world. 5 They are of the world: for this they speak of the world, and the world hears them.
