and eternal life.
Little children,
keep yourselves from idols.
Observations 1. I am fairly sure that in 5:18, that it is Jesus who is protecting the believer from evil. 3 reasons for this: A. There are two different tenses used for begotten: aorist, and then the perfect, which differentiates the two. B. Does a Christian believer "protect" a fellow believer, or "ask for" a fellow believer. Moreover, is it the job of a Christian brother to protect another from Satan, or Jesus? Based on the language differences, I take this to be Jesus. C. I think the "everyone does not.." language refers again to Christians in general, and that there really is another section break here. The "evil one" in 19 argues more for a new section as well.
