John 3: 16 - 18:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son (Jesus Christ), that
whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the
world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not
condemned; but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believeth in the name of
the only begotten Son of God.
