STUMBLING?

"He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him."
(1 John 2:10 KJV)
How much is "none?"

Yes, The Word of God says "there is NONE occasion of stumbling" in the person who "loves his brother."  Therefore, if you are experiencing a stumbling problem, it's a great idea to search your heart and let go of any grudge, hatred, or anything else that you are holding against your brother.  According to The Word of God, this will bring light into the situation and keep you from stumbling.

MAKE IT RIGHT - ABIDE IN THE LIGHT
"He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes."
(1 John 2:9-11 KJV)
Don't allow darkness to blind your eyes.

FORGIVE YOUR BROTHER
"This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin."
(1 John 1:5-7 KJV)
How much is "all?"

Yes, "if we walk in the light... the blood of Jesus... cleanseth us from ALL sin."

LOVE YOUR BROTHER
"Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
[THIS IS A KEY TO THE KINGDOM]
Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants. And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt. But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest. And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done. Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses."
(Matthew 18:21-35 KJV)
LOVE AND FORGIVE YOUR BROTHER AND THE LIGHT OF CHRIST WILL KEEP YOU FROM STUMBLING

Ref. Matthew 5:20-24, 1 John 2:1-10, and Matthew 16:19.
