4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 5 They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. 6 We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.
Verse 4 explains why Christians may seem arrogant and self-righteous to outsiders and verses 5 and 6 tell why non-Christians just don’t “get it” and never will. Simple as that!
