Light & Darkness - 1 John 1:5

If God is light (see 1John 1:5 Here),

then what is the opposite?

The absence of light = darkness.


In space - light only comes from other celestial beings, with plenty of empty darkness in between.


So what if Hell is the absence of light, sound, and physical form?


A ‘trite’ argument of non-believers has been,

“at-least when I go to hell, all my friends will be there!”


But you wouldn’t know it.

You would be separated from everyone else.




Without air molecules to vibrate? 

No sound,

And therefore no verbal communication.

With no physical from,

No pain to tell if you are dead or alive.

And without other celestial beings to give off light?

Utter darkness.

Thus with no ability to visually see anyone else,

because that is what light does...

reflecting colors off other objects to our eyes,

we are left feeling all alone.

And I think insanity would follow.


Prison is not hell.

In “there” is still light.

God is alive and well - reaching the lost to provide hope through the salvation of Christ.

If people in prison can find hope through Jesus, then you can find hope too.

Maybe you are looking in the wrong places for it, but hope exists none-the-less.

Is it time for you to walk in the light?


Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”  - John 8:12 NIV


And if you already have IT - the hope that endures all things, would you go out of your way to help it grow for someone else in need?


To give and receive hope,

I could give up a meal,

or an afternoon of leisure.


How about you?
