I believe crosshairs would jump for joy while rereading 1John. The warnings against a deceptive gospel sounds right up his alley.

Our heart of love for God is what saves us, not following prescriptions.

John tells us that even as we who abide in Him sin, the love from God helps to overcome it.

" IF"

IF =is defined as Condition, Requirement Or Stipulation in my Dictionary.

8 IF WE( Christians) claim to be Without Sin, WE DECEIVE ourselves and the TRUTH IS NOT in US.

9 IF WE CONFESS Our SINS, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.”

"IF" WE CONFESS Our SINS,

Let's Not Be Iffy! Now!!

"we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.”

We have to confess our sins.

God Is Not a Liar!

A Condition, Requirement Or Stipulation to be Forgiven.

Not a One time Confession.

John is addressing Christians.
