    VERSE (8) -
    :10; 5:19 *Gr:

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:8

    El que hace pecado, es del diablo, porque el diablo peca desde el principio. Para esto apareci el Hijo de Dios, para que deshaga las obras del diablo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 John 3:8

    Verse 8. He that committeth
    sin is of the devil] Hear this, also, ye who plead for Baal, and cannot bear the thought of that doctrine that states believers are to be saved from all sin in this life! He who committeth sin is a child of the devil, and shows that he has still the nature of the devil in him; for the devil sinneth from the beginning - he was the father of sin, brought sin into the world, and maintains sin in the world by living in the hearts of his own children, and thus leading them to transgression; and persuading others that they cannot be saved from their sins in this life, that he may secure a continual residence in their heart. He knows that if he has a place there throughout life, he will probably have it at death; and, if so, throughout eternity.

    For this purpose] eiv touto? For this very end - with this very design, was Jesus manifested in the flesh, that he might destroy, ina lush, that he might loose, the bonds of sin, and dissolve the power, influence, and connection of sin. See on ver. 3.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. He that committeth sin is of the devil , &c.] Not everyone that sins, or commits acts of sin, then every man is of the devil, because no man lives without the commission of sin; but he who makes sin his constant business, and the employment of his life, whose life is a continued series of sinning, he is of the devil; not as to origin and substance, or by proper generation, as some have literally understood the words; but by imitation, being like him, and so of him their father, doing his lusts, living continually in sin, as he does, and so resemble him, as children do their parents; and hereby also appear to be under his government and influence, to be led captive by him at his will, and so to belong to him, and such as will have their part and portion with him in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, so living and dying: for the devil sinneth from the beginning ; not of his creation, for he was made by God a pure and holy creature; but from the beginning of the world, or near it, at least from the beginning of man's creation; for he not only sinned by rebelling against God himself, and by drawing in the rest of the apostate angels into the rebellion with him, but by tempting man, as soon as created, to sin against God: what was his first and particular sin is not certain, whether pride or envy, or what; seems to be, his not abiding in the truth, or an opposition to the truth of the Gospel, respecting the incarnation of the Son of God, mentioned in the following clause; (see John 8:44); however, he has been continually sinning ever since: he sinneth; he is always sinning, doing nothing else but sin; so that he that lives a vicious course of life is like him, and manifestly of him: for this purpose the Son of God was manifested ; in human nature, as in ( 1 John 3:5); whence it appears that he was the Son of God before his incarnation, and so not by it; he did not become so through it, nor was he denominated such on account of it; he was not made the Son of God by it, but was manifested in it what he was before; and for this end: that he might destroy the works of the devil ; and the devil himself, and all his dominion and power, and particularly his power over death, and death itself; and especially the sins of men, which are the works of the devil, which he puts them upon, influences them to do, and takes delight in; and which are destroyed by Christ, by his sacrifice and death, being taken, carried, removed away, finished, and made an end of by him; (see Gill on 1 John 3:5).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 3-10 - The sons of
    God know that their Lord is of purer eyes than to allow an thing unholy and impure to dwell with him. It is the hope of hypocrites, not of the sons of God, that makes allowance for gratifyin impure desires and lusts. May we be followers of him as his dea children, thus show our sense of his unspeakable mercy, and expres that obedient, grateful, humble mind which becomes us. Sin is the rejecting the Divine law. In him, that is, in Christ, was no sin. All the sinless weaknesses that were consequences of the fall, he took that is, all those infirmities of mind or body which subject man to suffering, and expose him to temptation. But our moral infirmities, ou proneness to sin, he had not. He that abides in Christ, continues no in the practice of sin. Renouncing sin is the great proof of spiritual union with, continuance in, and saving knowledge of the Lord Christ Beware of self-deceit. He that doeth righteousness is righteous, and to be a follower of Christ, shows an interest by faith in his obedienc and sufferings. But a man cannot act like the devil, and at the sam time be a disciple of Christ Jesus. Let us not serve or indulge what the Son of God came to destroy. To be born of God is to be inwardl renewed by the power of the Spirit of God. Renewing grace is an abidin principle. Religion is not an art, a matter of dexterity and skill, but a new nature. And the regenerate person cannot sin as he did before he was born of God, and as others do who are not born again. There is tha light in his mind, which shows him the evil and malignity of sin. Ther is that bias upon his heart, which disposes him to loathe and hate sin There is the spiritual principle that opposes sinful acts. And there is repentance for sin, if committed. It goes against him to sin with forethought. The children of God and the children of the devil have their distinct characters. The seed of the serpent are known by neglec of religion, and by their hating real Christians. He only is righteou before God, as a justified believer, who is taught and disposed to righteousness by the Holy Spirit. In this the children of God ar manifest, and the children of the devil. May all professors of the gospel lay these truths to heart, and try themselves by them.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    8. The
    Devil. See on ii. 13. Compare John viii. 44. "The devil made no one, he begot no one, he created no one; but whosoever imitates the devil, is, as it were, a child of the devil, through imitating, not through being born of him" (Augustine).

    Sinneth. The present tense indicates continuousness. He sinned in the beginning, and has never ceased to sin from the beginning, and still sinneth. The Son of God. For the first time in the Epistle. Hitherto the title has been the Son, or His Son. See on i. 7.

    Might destroy (lush). Lit., dissolve, loosen. Compare Acts xxvii. 41; xiii. 43. "The works of the devil are represented as having a certain consistency and coherence. They show a kind of solid front. But Christ, by His coming, has revealed them in their complete unsubstantiality. He has 'undone' the seeming bonds by which they were held together" (Westcott).
