16 For God so loved the world [every man] that he gave his only begotten Son [to every man], so that whoever believes in [depends on, trusts, obeys] him shall not perish, but have eternal life.2 [It is not enough to believe that Jesus is the Son of God; even the demons believe that Jesus is the Son of the most High God, and they tremble. You must believe what Jesus, the light and word within your heart, shows and says to you; to believe what He says and shows to you is to believe in Jesus. Christ is the light given to every man so that he might believe. John 1:1-4,7,9. To believe is to believe what you hear Him speak to you; believe enough to heed and obey Jesus, who is the Word of God and light of the Word in each man's heart that anonymously reproves you, (and every man), of sin. As the companion verses below (19,20,21) say: "And this is the condemnation, that light has come into the world (every man), but men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil deeds (sins) hates the light (so hates Christ, who is the light) and does not come to the light for fear his deeds will be exposed and reproved. But he who practices truth comes to the light, so that his deeds may be shown to have been produced [formed and powered] through God." To have eternal life is to have lost your fleshly life, having persistently believed and obeyed Jesus' spoken commands to you, so that you enter union with Him, to then obey His ordered deeds to His glory and your joy.]
17 For God did not send his Son into the world [every man] to condemn the world [every man]; but so that the world [every man] might be saved through him. [For the Son of man has not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. Luke 9:56. To be saved is to be freed from all sin; even the desire to sin is taken away.]
