Outline Themes of 1John

IMG_4001.JPG

5:21 Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.

1. God in the flesh=Jesus Christ

2. Jesus Christ defines love in His Cross-work. 

3. Christian identity is expressed in the same standard of love as Jesus.

4. There is no room for habitual sinning, so remember that...

5. Sinning is outdone/covered by Jesus’ sacrifice, so Christians regularly cling to this.

Idols=remaking God in our preferred image.  

Keeping a true image of God=sticking closely to 1-5.
