1 Whoever believes that Jesus is the Messiah is a child of God; and whoever loves a father loves his child also.
4 because every child of God is able to defeat the world. And we win the victory over the world by means of our faith.
6 Jesus Christ is the one who came with the water of his baptism and the blood of his death. He came not only with the water, but with both the water and the blood. And the Spirit himself testifies that this is true, because the Spirit is truth.
