1 John has a lot to say about fellowship. In fact, it’s one of the underlying themes of the whole book! John the Apostle was writing to remind Christians of the great fellowship we share with Jesus and with each other. It’s this two-fold fellowship that is so necessary to understand the book as a whole. God created us to be in relationship with Him, and then to be in community with others who worship Him. This original design is reinstalled in us by Christ as salvation, and it’s essential to a healthy Christian life. This letter also speaks a lot about the relationship between the believer and sin. Reckless interpretation of these passages has led to some fairly dangerous false teachings about sinless perfection and other ridiculous things, which we get into in the episode.
As always, we start off by talking about WandaVision, though. And “OG YouTube” gets a special mention as well as we reminisce about the wild west days of YouTube back in 2009.
