Book of First John (Lesson 5) the New Body, the Two Families, and War with the World
This is lesson 5 of the systematic Bible study of the Book of First John which covers 1 John 3:1-12. Practical advice is given to parents and teachers on how to teach these verses, and important doctrines are pointed out and discussed. The doctrines being covered are: #1 – The world does not understand those that are born of God. #2 – The children of God have faith that they will be given a new body and a new heart, all of which live in perfect harmony with God. #3 – The one that has been born again purposefully, actively, and consistently work to overcome sin and to purge sin from their thoughts and deeds. #4 – The consistent lifestyle and actions of the person prove if they have been born of God or not. #5 – There are only two types of people in the world, children of God, and children of the devil. #6 – The world, like Cain, can not and will not, live in harmony and peace with the children of God, because their very existence convicts them of sin, they therefore seek to destroy the children of God, just as Cain killed able.
