CLV(i) 1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, at which we gaze and our hands handle, is concerned with the word of life." 2 And the life was manifested, and we have seen and are testifying and reporting to you the life eonian which was toward the Father and was manifested to us." 3 That which we have seen and heard we are reporting to you also, that you too may be having fellowship with us, and yet this fellowship of ours is with the Father and with His Son, Jesus Christ." 4 And these things we are writing, that our joy may be full." 5 And this is the message which we have heard from Him and are informing you, that God is light, and darkness in Him there is none." 6 If we should be saying that we are having fellowship with Him and should be walking in darkness, we are lying and are not doing the truth." 7 Yet if we should be walking in the light as He is in the light, we are having fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, is cleansing us from every sin." 8 If we should be saying that we have no sin we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us." 9 If we should be avowing our sins, He is faithful and just that He may be pardoning us our sins and should be cleansing us from all injustice." 10 If we should be saying that we have not sinned, we are making Him a liar, and His word is not in us."
