    Jesus said it. It must be true.

    Well, I don't think Jesus was "giving the world the right" to declare someone to be a Christian or not.

    The sense I get from this verse, in context with the next few chapters, is that the world will identify Christians by their love for one another (and so revealing themselves to be true disciples of Christ) and that will lead to their persecution.

    peace to you:praying:

    I have deleted off-topic comments and put them in another thread. Please do not turn this into another C v. A thread. There are plenty already.
