1 John 1:6

If we say (ean eipwmen).
Condition of third class with ean and second aorist (ingressive, up and say) active subjunctive. Claiming fellowship with God (see verse 3) involves walking in the light with God (verse 5) and not in the darkness (skotov here, but skotia in John 1:5). See 1 John 2:11 also for en thi skotiai peripatew.

We lie (pseudometa).
Present middle indicative, plain Greek and plain English like that about the devil in John 8:44.

Do not the truth (ou poioumen thn alhteian).
Negative statement of the positive pseudometa as in John 8:44. See John 3:21 for "doing the truth," like Nehemiah 9:33.
