1 John 4:1-6
1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.
4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5 They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. 6 We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
1親愛的 弟兄啊，一切的靈，你們不可都信，總要試驗那些靈是出於上帝的不是，因為世上有許多假先知已經出來了。 2 凡靈認耶穌基督是成了肉身來的，就是出於上帝的；從此你們可以認出上帝的靈來。 3 凡靈不認耶穌，就不是出於上帝，這是那敵基督者的靈。你們從前聽見他要來，現在已經在世上了。 4 小子們哪，你們是屬上帝的，並且勝了他們；因為那在你們裏面的，比那在世界上的更大。 5 他們是屬世界的，所以論世界的事，世人也聽從他們。 6 我們是屬上帝的，認識上帝的就聽從我們；不屬上帝的就不聽從我們。從此我們可以認出真理的靈和謬妄的靈來。
