The First Letter of Saint John    2: 22-28

2:22 Who is a liar, other than he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This one is the Antichrist, who denies the Father and the Son.
2:23 No one who denies the Son also has the Father. Whoever confesses the Son, also has the Father.
2:24 As for you, let what you have heard from the beginning remain in you. If what you have heard from the beginning remains in you, then you, too, shall abide in the Son and in the Father.
2:25 And this is the Promise, which he himself has promised to us: Eternal Life.
2:26 I have written these things to you, because of those who would seduce you.
2:27 But as for you, let the Anointing that you have received from him abide in you. And so, you have no need of anyone to teach you. For his Anointing teaches you about everything, and it is the truth, and it is not a lie. And just as his Anointing has taught you, abide in him.
2:28 And now, little sons, abide in him, so that when he appears, we may have faith, and we may not be confounded by him at his advent.
