Oh, I get it. I honestly did not know what part of 1 John 3:23 you found offensive. When I read it I couldn't see anything that might conflict with my message or offend anyone, but if you think the word, "command" is offensive, I will be happy to comply. Actually, I wonder if we interpret the word, "command" in the same way. Let's discuss.

To rephrase, I would simply leave it out.

> Is a false Christ Satan?
> If there are false Christs and false prophets then there must also be "a" true Christ and true prophets, and therefore all false ones must be of Satan
>
> (Along with alexandra's words) I have the concept of Satan as the most evil being because he tries to make me think I am worthless. But if he and his despise for me only existed as a concept then I could conceive of something even more evil: namedly something that was the most evil being who also existed in reality. Because I know I am of worth and I have caught Satan in his evil lies about me, the most evil being (Satan) is real.
>
> I want to believe in my own worth. Therefore I will focus my thoughts and feelings on Jesus Christ. If by centering my thoughts and feelings on Christ I still feel worthless, I will cease to believe. However, if by chance, by centering my thoughts, feelings on Jesus Christ, I feel more inclined to love myself and others, I will look to Christ and live.
