1 John 2:18-21 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
Warning against Antichrists
18 Children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come; therefore we know that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out, that it might be plain that they all are not of us. 20 But you have been anointed by the Holy One, and you all know.[a] 21 I write to you, not because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and know that no lie is of the truth.
