Not sure what this has to do with you misquoting 1 John.
Is it possible you do in order to avoid obeying what Jesus and St. James say about confessing ours sins?
It is strange that you would quote James the brother of Jesus .( One to the roman Catholics a non person).when ( in order to claim that Mary was perpetual virgin) you refuse to admit that he exist...

The Apostle Paul identified His as "the Lord's Brother..".

Gal_1:19 But other of the apostles saw I none, save James --> the Lord's brother.<--

You Roman Catholics have to deem several of the apostles...to be liars in order to propagate your fables about Mary.'s intimacies with Joseph ..

.Fables that have no foundation whatsoever in the Bible, and have nothing to do with GOD'S PLAN OF REDEMPTION/SALVATION...

2Co 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth -->ANOTHER JESUS,<-- whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

IS THE THE JESUS MENTIONED ABOVE THE ONE WHOM YOU SERVE.?.

YOU CERTAINLY ARE NOT REPRESENTING THE ONE IN THE BIBLE...HE NEVER CALLED OTHERS NAMES..

1Pe 2:21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

1Pe 2:22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

1Pe 2:23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:

1Pe 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

A devil could not exist without the "approval" of the ever-so HOLY god ... that by the way, not only allows the devil to exist, but by allowing him to exist encourages the devil to tempt humans with evil.

If the gods did away with the devils ... there would BE no evil in humans ... RIGHT??? There would just be the human need to survive and be self-centered, as occurs in all other animals.

That is why theologians created gods as invisible beings. They knew that others could not prove that they were lying. They also claimed that the gods were giving them messages, and they knew that others could not prove that they were lying.

I believe that you were lying when you claimed that you were "called" by "God" to preach ... but I can't prove it.

Is there any evidence we can’t lose our salvation? Certainly.

“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.“And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.“My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.(John 10:27–29 NKJV)

Notice the explicit phrase here,“they shall never perish”. If you could lose your salvation, you would perish, and Jesus would be a liar, thus it must not be possible. But also notice two hands here, the Father and the Son. The picture of one hand over the other — a complete enclosure — so that “no one is able to snatch them out”. That’s comforting, because I’m a man, and if no one can snatch them out, I can’t snatch myself out.

Later Jesus, just before his betrayal, had this to say in his prayer to the Father.

“While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.(John 17:12 NKJV)

It’s not up to us to maintain our salvation. Jesus does all the work. Whose job is it to keep the sheep? Certainly not the sheep, they are too stupid. It’s the shepherd’s job to keep the sheep. And one of Jesus’ seven “I AM” statements in John is “I AM the good shepherd”(John 10:11). Jesus is the shepherd, he is not going to lose any sheep.

You Did Nothing to Earn Salvation, Right?

Ephesians 2:8–9 says we are saved by faith, not by works. In fact, even the faith to believe is a gift from God! Logically, if I did not do anything to obtain salvation, can I do anything to lose it? I don’t think so. If God chose us before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4), will he unchoose us later? That would imply he can change, and God does not change.

Paul has another issue in Ephesians. In chapter 1 verses 13–14, he speaks of being “sealed” with the Holy Spirit of promise. If God seals something, I don’t see how it could be unsealed. Paul continues to speak of the Holy Spirit as “the guarantee of our inheritance”. A guarantee of being sealed is not worth much if it’s possible to lose your salvation and become unsealed.

The real problem is not can you lose your salvation, the real problem is, were you ever saved in the first place? This is perhaps a more disturbing question than losing our salvation. I am not speaking of sincere doubts, we all at some point have those (remember Satan and his deception campaign). Have you made a sincere prayer of commitment to Christ? If so, you don’t have a problem. If not, do it now.

Unfortunately, people frequently rely on feelings and experiences, which not only are unreliable, but can easily be used by the enemy to deceive us. Satan himself can transform into an angel of light (II Corinthians 11:13–14). We must anchor ourselves firmly to the rock of the Word of God.

I suggest that all preachers of religion were and are false prophets.

The future can't be known because it has not yet happened ... unless of course, past, present and future are one and the same, which was Einstein's theory.

And if the future is the same as the past and the present, then I suggest that we are nothing but robots in a drama that has already occurred.

THE TRUTH that is manifested in Jesus Christ Himself and His Catholic Church!
Tell me what definition your NABre pope approved Bible teaches regarding the church Christ built. I don't see one word about it being the one (and only one) TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church.

Church: this word (Greek ekkl&#275;sia) occurs in the gospels only here and in Mt 18:17 (twice). There are several possibilities for an Aramaic original. Jesus’ church means the community that he will gather and that, like a building, will have Peter as its solid foundation. That function of Peter consists in his being witness to Jesus as the Messiah, the Son of the living God.

BTW..Christians, such as I, believe the Word of God...His Word, on this matter, says you are a liar...

Aglaonice (ag la o ni si) the Thessalian, being able to calculate eclipses, claimed power over the MOON and to be able to draw it from HEAVEN. Her vaunting became a laughing-stock and gave rise to the Greek proverb cast at braggarts,“Yes, as the Moon obeys Aglaonice.”

Blessed Palm Sunday !

Vatican City, Apr 13, 2014 / 05:41 am (CNA).- In his Palm Sunday homily, Pope Francis urged the congregation to consider how their actions and attitudes reflected the various characters in the story of Jesus’ passion and death.

“We have heard the (Gospel reading of the) Passion of the Lord. Only, it does us good to ask a question: Who am I? Who am I before my Lord? Who am I before Jesus who enters festively into Jerusalem?” the Pope said on April 13.

“This week moves towards the mystery of the death of Jesus and of his resurrection,” noted the pontiff.“Where is my heart and which of these persons am I most like? It is this question that accompanies us throughout the week.”

The crowds filled a sunny St. Peter’s Square to attend the papal liturgy, clutching olive branches and woven palms as they listened to Pope Francis reflect on the different persons in the Gospel.

Departing entirely from his prepared remarks, the Holy Father considered each figure in the story, followed by questions about their relation to Jesus.

First, the Gospel recounts Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, where he is welcomed by adoring crowds.“Do I have the capacity to express my joy, to praise him? Or do I move away? Who am I, before Jesus who suffers?” queried the pontiff.

Then, there are several groups of leaders, priests, pharisees, and teachers of law who decide to kill Jesus.“Am I like one of them?”

“Am I like Judas, who pretends to love and kisses the master to hand him over, to betray him? Am I a traitor?” he reflected.

“Or am I like the disciples who did not understand what it was to betray Jesus?” The Pope continued. They “did not understand anything...they fell asleep while the Lord suffered. Is my life asleep?”
