This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
1 John 1:5-7
The verdict God brought was that men loved darkness rather than the light. They preferred to remain hidden, covered, and in the shadows. From the fall, man has chosen to hide from God at His approach, and to fashion inadequate coverings to hide his nakedness.
In God, there is no darkness at all. There is no shadow of turning in Him. From the beginning, Light shone forth, the radiance of God, and called forth light, and light was. And, from this light, all creation exists. But, it is the continual union with the Lord that all life is.
