1 John Outline
1 John 5:19

19 We know that we are 1of God, and the 2whole aworld 3lies in the 4bevil one.

194 The Greek word does not refer to an essentially worthless and wicked character, nor does it indicate worthlessness and corruption, degeneracy from original virtue. It refers to one who is pernicious, harmfully evil, one who affects others, influencing them to be evil and vicious. Such an evil one is Satan, the devil, in whom the whole world lies.
