THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

Notes on The First Epistle of St. John the Apostle (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

5:1 Is born of God: That is, is justified, and become a child of God by baptism: which is also to be understood; provided the belief of this fundamental article of the Christian faith be accompanied with all the other conditions, which, by the word of God, and his appointment, are also required to justification; such as a general belief of all that God has revealed and promised: hope, love, repentance, and a sincere disposition to keep God's holy law and commandments.
