â€œIndeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him…And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil.”
Gospel logic says that mercy leads to light and that condemnation is the domain of darkness. Darkness always condemns itself. Condemnation is a self-infecting virus, a circular plague of mutual condemnation. This was the way we were. Lovers of darkness and condemnation.
God sent the Son and exposed our way of fashioning a world through condemnation. A great big mercy that wakes us up to great big light.
