Yes BJ Bear, the Holy Spirit is the best teacher....
The Holy Spirit is the best teacher. To reach the Spirit's intended meaning of a passage the reader has to pay attention to and respect the marks on the page rather than try and read an interpretation into a passage.
In this case, 1 John 1:6, the word, "we," is a first person plural. It isn't secret code for a third person plural. Since it is a first person plural it includes John, the Apostles, and the intended recipients, that is, it includes all Christians.
What you are suggesting is that your interpretation of 1 John 1:6 overrules what the passage actually says.
So, did Dr. Martin Luther reach the Spirit's intended meaning of beyn ha'arbayim in his translation of Exodus 12:6, or did the Wartburg Project English translators reach the Spirit's intended meaning of beyn ha'arbayim in their Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV) of 2019?

6 You are to keep it until the fourteenth day of this month. Then the whole assembly of the Israelite community is to slaughter the lambs at sunset.[a]
[a] Literally between the evenings, very likely between sunset and darkness.]
BTW, "between the evening(s)" is plural. If your answer is the Wartburg Project English translators, then why would the Holy Spirit wait until 2019 to reveal this Truth to English speaking saints in Christ Jesus on earth? Did the Wartburg Project English translators believe that Dr. Martin Luther was incorrect in his translation of Exodus 12:6? How can sunset be between, sunset and darkness?
In Christ's service,
Soli Deo Gloria!
