1 John 1:5-2:2 (The Egalitarian Translation)

This, then, is the message we heard from Jesus
and declare to you:
God is light,
and in God there is no darkness at all.
If we say we have intimacy with God
while still living in darkness,
we are liars
and do not live in truth.
But if we live in the light,
as God is in the light,
we are one with each other,
and the blood of Jesus, the Only Begotten,
purifies us from all sin.
