1 John 5:3 Error and Antichrist

1 John 5:3 (KJV)
For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

I want to take this back to 1 John 4:4-6 and the spirit of truth versus the spirit of error. 
1 John 4:4-6 (KJV)
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

  • It is God whom we are to love. 
  • It is God whom we are to believe. 
  • It is God whom we are to worship. 

Anything else is error and antichrist. 

But the Word of God is our connection with God. Therefore, we may recognize a good deal about our relationship with God from our attitude concerning the Bible, the Word of God. 

  • To believe it is of God
  • To accept that it is true
  • To obey those things it teaches

This is the spirit of truth and it is evidence of an honest love for God.
