Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
6 of 21
Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
7 of 21
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
8 of 21
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
9 of 21
They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
10 of 21
We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
11 of 21
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
12 of 21
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
13 of 21
In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
14 of 21
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
15 of 21
Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
16 of 21
No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
17 of 21
Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
18 of 21
And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.
19 of 21
Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
20 of 21
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
21 of 21
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
22 of 21
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
23 of 21
We love him, because he first loved us.
24 of 21
If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
25 of 21
And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

  BIBLE CANON: 5
A biblical canon is a set of texts (or "books") which a particular religious community regards as authoritative scripture. Christians were the first to use the term in reference to scripture.

These bible canons have developed through debate and agreement by the religious authorities.

1. Marcion Canon | BIBLE CANON 140 AD
Marcionism was a religious movement based on the teachings of the 2nd-century Marcion of Sinope. Marcions Canon lists 14 books out of the 27 books in the New Testament. More specifically, these were Luke and Paul's 13 writings. Marcion even rejected the entire Old Testament of 39 books.

(No mention; no quotes; opinion unknown)
2. Muratorian Canon | BIBLE CANON 170 AD
The Muratorian Canon is an ancient list of New Testament books - the oldest such list we have found and lists 22 of the 27 books that were later included in the New Testament of the Christian Bible.

It is noteworthy that the Muratorian Canon omits several epistles that later did win acceptance in the Christian New Testament such as the books of James and 2 Peter.

4. Cheltenham/ Mommsen List | BIBLE CANON 360 AD
The Cheltenham or Mommsen List is a Latin manuscript discovered by the German classical scholar Theodor Mommsen (published 1886) which probably originated in North Africa in the 4th century.

It has 24-book Old Testament and 24-book New Testament which omits Jude and James, and perhaps Hebrews, and questions the epistles of John and Peter.

The Council of Rome was a meeting of Catholic Church officials and theologians which took place in 382 under the authority of Pope Damasus I, bishop of Rome.

IMPORTANT: All Scripture text has context and background. Scripture should never be read literally or in isolation. Always seek clarification from religious scholars and teachers. In general, Scripture adheres to four principles: (1) Literal Meaning - What the Scripture says (2) Historical Setting - The story events; how the Scripture was understood in its time (3) Grammar - The surrounding sentence and paragraph; textual context (4) Synthesis - A comparison with similar Scripture to give a better contextual understanding
