It doesn’t matter what kind of experiences you have in church if you have let go of certain beliefs.
Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. (1 John 5 v 12)
The place we give to Jesus Christ in the Church is critical. Those without the true testimony of Jesus Christ (like John’s antichrists) do not have salvation. To have the Son is to have the Son living within. It is to have Him abiding in your life. This is what John has been focusing on over the last 5 chapters. To have the Son is to love fellow believers. How we treat others reveals what’s inside our lives. Those who don’t like that are probably the ones who do not love.
