About the Series

In this short book, John addresses the attempt of some who formerly professed Christ to destroy the gospel assurance of believers. John’s famous “tests of genuine faith” are meant to do two things: first, to show that these secessionists do not actually know God or believe the true gospel; and, second, to assure these believers that their faith is actually genuine. These characters are not so much unlike those in our day who tell Christians their de-conversion stories as an attempt to destroy their faith and assurance. In God’s kind providence, 1 John is the perfect book to address this very threat. In the process, 1 John helps us get crystal clear on what the gospel actually is.
