“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” (I John 4:4)
True Christians have overcome the false “spirits” who deny the Biblical Jesus (see I John 4:3). We have overcome them because we have resisted their false teachings and continue to believe in Jesus Christ who died on the cross for our sins and rose again. These people who try to trick us may be very well educated, and may have higher IQ’s then us, but God has exposed their plot to us so that we are not fooled. Our success in believing the truth is not the result of how smart we are, but is the result of Almighty Creator God dwelling inside us.
