By this you know the Spirit of God; every spirit which confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit which does not confess Jesus is not of God. And this is the [spirit] of anti-christ, of which you have heard that he is coming, and he is now in the world already.

Nevertheless, many of the rulers believed on him, but on account of the Pharisees did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogues; for they loved the glory of men more than the glory of God.

Not every one that says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that does the will of my Father in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name, and in your name cast out demons, and in your name performed many mighty works? and then will I confess to them, I never knew you; depart from me you that commit wickedness.

Then he answered, Whether he is a sinner I know not; one thing I know, that having been blind, I now see. Then they said to him, What did he do to you? how did he open your eyes? He answered them, I have told you already, and you did not hear; why do you wish to hear again? Do you also wish to be his disciples? They reproached him, and said, You are his disciple, but we are disciples of Moses. We know that God spoke to Moses, but we know not whence this man is. The man answered and said to them, It is a strange thing, that you know not whence he is, and he has opened my eyes. We know that God hears not sinners; but if one is a worshipper of God, and does his will, him he hears. Since the world began it has not been heard that any one opened the eyes of one born blind; unless this man was from God he would have been able to do nothing. They answered and said to him, You were born entirely in sins, and do you teach us? And they cast him without. Jesus heard that they had cast him without, and finding him he said to him, Do you believe in the Son of God? And he answered and said, Who is he, sir, that I shall believe on him? Jesus said to him, You have both seen him, and he that speaks to you is he. And he said, Lord, I believe, and worshipped him.

For if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe with your mind that God raised him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the mind we believe to righteousness, and with the mouth we confess to salvation. For the Scripture says, No one that believes in him shall be ashamed.

Philip said to him, Lord, show us the Father, and we shall be satisfied. Jesus said to him, Have I been so long a time with you and have you not known me, Philip?

Jesus said to them, If God was your father you would have loved me; for I came forth and come from God; for I came not of myself, but he sent me.
