The First Letter of Saint John    5: 5-13

5:5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God!
5:6 This is the One who came by water and blood: Jesus Christ. Not by water only, but by water and blood. And the Spirit is the One who testifies that the Christ is the Truth.
5:7 For there are Three who give testimony in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit. And these Three are One.
5:8 And there are three who give testimony on earth: the Spirit, and the water, and the blood. And these three are one.
5:9 If we accept the testimony of men, then the testimony of God is greater. For this is the testimony of God, which is greater: that he has testified about his Son.
5:10 Whoever believes in the Son of God, holds the testimony of God within himself. Whoever does not believe in the Son, makes him a liar, because he does not believe in the testimony which God has testified about his Son.
5:11 And this is the testimony which God has given to us: Eternal Life. And this Life is in his Son.
5:12 Whoever has the Son, has Life. Whoever does not have the Son, does not have Life.
5:13 I am writing this to you, so that you may know that you have Eternal Life: you who believe in the name of the Son of God.
