1 John 1 John 5:5 makes it sound like only those who overcome the battle truly believe. In this version that is: "And the ones who win this battle against the world are the ones who believe that Jesus is the Son of God. " But the King James and others makes it more clear that "And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God." The first one's not a very good translation if you ask me.
