1Jo 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. HP: What does it mean to purify ones self? The question then remains, are you purifying yourself? According to this passage, can one be found ‘not’ purifying himself and still retain a certain hope of eternal life?
