Satan knows these weaknesses and uses them to his advantage. If Satan cannot cause us to sin, he certainly cannot indwell in us.

Followers of Christ - When followers of Christ share God’s grace and allow the works of the Holy Spirit to become visible to others, this can both preserve others from corruption and lead them to Christ. The Kingdom of God benefits, when the godly lifestyles of those that follow Christ, causes others to realize there is something missing in their lives and they can see part of what is missing in their lives in the lives of believers. Followers of Christ should draw others to Christ.

The Occasion and Purpose of 1 John - “Although 1 John had its origins during a period of false teaching, the author’s main purpose is not to confront heresy, but to reassure those who remain that they do indeed know the truth about Jesus, and consequently do have eternal life.” 1 John was written to reassure believers to keep the faith and continue to hold the values that they have, through a time when a schism was taking place within the church. The believers were living in a confusing time and according to Thompson “The turmoil within their congregation undoubtedly caused many to question their own faith and practice, and to wonder whether they were also guilty of or prone to the failings of the departed dissidents.” The pe...   [tags: christianity, false teaching, jesus]
