    So what does that say for those who claim just believe that Jesus is God and you are saved?

    I've heard it.

    What does this say about people who do make the claim?

    Why don't you ask the one you heard it from?

    They probably get it from 1 John

    By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God;

    Intellectual assent does not a Christian make.

    The verse you quoted assumes the believer has already trusted Jesus as saviour and is born again. Having been born again means the believer has the spirit of God and is subsequently able to know the difference between "the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error". Verse 6 chapter 4.

    After all, the book was written to believers, not unbelievers. Without the spirit of God it is impossible to know God.
