Why does God allow for judgment and condemnation? Because the Light, sent from God, pierced through the world’s darkness to expose ill motives, hatred, gossip, greed, violence, and the like. Still some people preferred the darkness over the light because their actions were dark. Some of humankind hated the light. They scampered hurriedly back into the darkness where vices thrive and wickedness flourishes. Those who abandon deceit and embrace what is true, they will enter into the light where it will be clear that all their deeds come from God.
2 Corinthians 5:19
For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And He gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation.
You are not to serve any other gods before Me. You are not to make any idol or image of other gods. In fact, you are not to make an image of anything in the heavens above, on the earth below, or in the waters beneath. You are not to bow down and serve any image, for I, the Eternal your God, am a jealous God. As for those who are not loyal to Me, their children will endure the consequences of their sins for three or four generations.
While you did these things, I kept silent; somehow you got the idea that I was like you.
But now My silence ends, and I am going to indict you. I’ll state the charge against you clearly, face-to-face.
Even now my days have passed me by; my plans lie broken at my feet; the secret wishes of my heart grow cold.
Blessed be the Lord who carries our heavy loads every day, the True God who is our salvation.

Listen, open your ears, harness your desire to speak, and don’t get worked up into a rage so easily, my brothers and sisters.
