The love of God has been shed abroad in our hearts by the holy spirit. We can “tune” that love in by faith and walk in him. This keeps us safe from darkness. The god of this world is a angel. I looked up angel in the Greek and one of the roots it comes from is “reflector”. He reflects light. You know like “I can see that”, or this is the truth I see. Etc etc. So he is constantly broadcasting pictures, feelings, thoughts and spiritual understanding that is light but not the true light. This explains why people believe evolution and other silly ideas. The big trick of this spiritual governor is to get us offended with another, thus separating us from love and that means separation from God who IS love. Love is light and love believes all things. The God of this world blinds the mind of those who don’t believe (since they don’t love). The light came into the world and the darkness comprehendeth it not. When we walk out of love we this we have sin, since we are walking outside of God who is love. Our lens on reality which is our heart then becomes a little darker and we see everything through that darkness. “now we see through a glass darkly” Well darkness leads to more darkness and then we will pretty much believe any old thing. The blood of Christ can cleanse us of that sin. Then we can see right in love. The love of God mixed with his word gives us light and starts cleaning up our heart. Jesus commanded us to make our HOME in his love. This leads us to psalm 91 which is the shelter (home) of the most high. This keeps you “safe from the strife of tongues”. So we can escape all the talking from the darkness. We then walk in the light as he is in the light.
