This is how God's children and the devil's children are distinguished. No person who fails to practice righteousness and to love his brother is from God. 11 This is the message that you have heard from the beginning: We should love one another. 12Do not be like Cain, who was from the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because what he was doing was evil and his brother's actions were righteous.
People who watch their kids die because their publishing company tell them they cant get blood transfusions or the ones who let people die from easily taken care of medical issues because they think one word in the 20th translation of a book they think their god had written might mean to stay away from docs etc.
