Background: This circular let
ter was sent to various churches in
Asia Minor. John, the beloved dis
ciple, probably penned it in
Ephesus. The early churches faced
many doctrinal ideas that made the believers doubt. The
apostle wrote to expose false teachers and to assure them
of their Salvation. He boldly declared that the foundation
of their relationship with God was love through Christ
Jesus. Chapter four opened with John cautioning them to
"test the spirit" that they experienced. If the teacher/spirit
didn't acknowledge Jesus as fully
human and divine, then it was the
"antichrist." He went on to say that their
faith in Christ has overcome the false
teachers. Therefore, the one (Holy
Spirit) who dwells in them is greater
than false teachers. The world listens to
them but believers follow God. Do you
know His voice? Loving one another
(with all their faults and ours) is the evi
dence that believers are of God. The
relationship between believers anrf flr>H
is based on love; nothing else! God loved first; He gave
His only Son for humanity! You can't beat that! John pre
