      A. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. (1John 1:6) / a. Si nous disons que nous sommes en communion avec lui alors que nous marchons dans les ténèbres, nous mentons, nous ne faisons pas la vérité. (1 Jn 1:6)

    • B.

      B. But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things (1John 2:20) / Quant à vous, vous avez reçu l'onction venant du Saint, et tous vous possédez la science. (1 Jn 2:20)

      C. Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you (1John 3:13) / Ne vous étonnez pas, frères, si le monde vous hait. (1 Jn 3:13)

    Correct Answer
    A. A. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. (1John 1:6) / a. Si nous disons que nous sommes en communion avec lui alors que nous marchons dans les ténèbres, nous mentons, nous ne faisons pas la vérité. (1 Jn 1:6)

Si nous disons que nous sommes en communion avec lui alors que nous marchons dans les ténèbres, nous mentons, nous ne faisons pas la vérité. (1 Jn 1:6)

     “ He who says he ________ in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked” (1John 2:6) ; the missing word is :     “ Celui qui prétend ________ en lui doit se conduire à son tour comme celui-là s'est conduit.” (1 Jn 2:6) ; Le mot manquant est :

      D. sees / Voir

    Correct Answer
    C. C. abides / Demeurer
    Explanation
    The correct answer is c. abides / Demeurer. This is because the phrase "He who says he abides in Him" means that someone claims to remain or stay in a close relationship with God. The phrase "ought himself also to walk just as He walked" means that they should live their life in a way that is consistent with how Jesus lived. Therefore, the word "abides" fits well in the context of the sentence and conveys the intended meaning.

      St. John mentioned 3 main sins: love of pleasure, materialism, and pride.

Therefore, the correct answer is b. The three temptations on the mountain / Les trois tentations sur la montagne.
