Truth For Life E25 | Are You Walking In The Light? A Close Look At 1 John 1:5-10

Are you walking in the light

Sharing is caring!

Are You Walking In The Light? A few days ago we looked at 1 John 1:1-4 and in our study we concluded that the apostle John was establishing at the outset that the Jesus whom he and the other disciples experienced was indeed the Christ. John presented the empirical evidence as well as the backing of the words of the prophets and the law. Today we’re going to be directing our attention on v5-10. We have to read these verses in light of their background. As I mentioned in my previous presentation ( while I was exploring v1-4), we established that another reason why John wrote this epistle was to counter false teaching. Gnosticism had infiltrated the church and the gnostic teachers believed that the way one lived in his physical body didn’t matter at all. They were wrapped up in mysticism and secret knowledge. They promoted licentious living and you can see how that could destroy the integrity of the church. So keep this in mind as we go through v5-10
