Light or Darkness?

I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

(Isaiah 45:7) KJV

Despite the fallen nature of the creation Jesus of Nazareth lived a life of sinless perfection. Even in an imperfect world God is still perfect.

Now, in case you’re worried about what the verse above says about God, the best way to understand it is in terms of cause and effect. God doesn’t have to create darkness for the sake of darkness, but if there’s anything at all in front of a source of light it’s going to cast a shadow. Did the light create the shadow? Not directly. The shadow happens because there’s something obstructing the light. This is the best way that we have found to understand the passage above. Another way, which is more poetic, is that darkness forms in response to light. Darkness is the shadow cast by anything which stands in opposition to the light.

Interpretation of Isaiah 45:7

  • Darkness forms in response to the light God created,
    • but God isn’t darkness.
  • Evil forms in response to the peace that God created,
    • but God isn’t evil.

If you want to choose light then you must call upon the name of Jesus Christ and believe in who the Bible proclaims him to be: the Son of the Living God who died and rose again.

Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

(John 8:12) NKJV

I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

(John 12:46) KJV
