Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 18 We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but God protects the one he has fathered, and the wicked one does not touch him.5 [The one God has fathered is a new creature, who is the believer with Christ resurrected within him; both then are raised to the heavens, to sit down in Christ, who never fell. He cannot fall to sin again because God protects him; he is sanctified, protected from evil. My Father, who gave them to me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. John 10:29.]

5 We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but God protects the one he has fathered, and the wicked one does not touch him. A person born of God can be tempted, but he cannot fall to temptation; he cannot again because he is protected by Christ and God within him. A man born of God is raised us up together [with Christ], and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Eph 2:6. He who is born of God is a part of Christ's body, in Christ; and Christ never sinned, and will never fall to sin. So the man who is part of Christ is protected from the wicked one — the walls of New Jerusalem are built high and strong within that man's heart, and the enemy cannot get in. My Father, who gave them to me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. John 10:29.
