||My little sons, this I write to you, so that you may not sin. But if anyone has sinned, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, the Just One.
||And he is the propitiation for our sins. And not only for our sins, but also for those of the whole world.
||And we can be sure that we have known him by this: if we observe his commandments.
||Whoever claims that he knows him, and yet does not keep his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
||But whoever keeps his word, truly in him the charity of God is perfected. And by this we know that we are in him.
