Bible Verse Sunday #7

Today's Bible verse is 1st John 1:8:

If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

The ESV Study Bible has this to say about this verse:

"1 John 1:8 have no sin. See note on 3:9–10. we deceive ourselves. The devil (3:8) or the world (2:15) may contribute to human straying, but in the end each individual bears responsibility for his or her own sin. Some sin remains in every Christian’s life (“have,” present tense), even that of the elderly apostle John (“we”)."

Today at church the pastor talked about evil, and how much God hates it. This is illustrated by Jesus driving out the merchants and money changers out of the temple, in John 2. In the High School service, we talked about the wise and foolish builders which Jesus talked about in his sermon on the mount in the book of Matthew.
