John 3:19

The [basis of the] judgment (indictment, the test by which men are judged, the ground for the sentence) lies in this: the Light has come into the world, and people have loved the darkness rather than and more than the Light, for their works (deeds) were evil.

I have always maintained some believes as a Christian, and this our bible verse only helps to buttress them. I have always believed that there are some people that are essentially evil, they love darkness, there is nothing you can do about it; they will always choose the dark over the light. I have always maintained that God is a just, and that God does not just select people based on how He feels but based on who they really are. God selected Jacob from HIS mother’s womb because God knew who Esau and Jacob were even before they were born. God knew this because He is the eternal I AM; he exists in the present, past and future all at the same time. This is also the basis for which judgment will come upon some. Because they saw the light and Chose to follow darkness. God who knows the choices that we would make before we were born decided to select and use us before we were born.

Going back to our study, Jesus says that people are judged because they loved darkness rather than light, and he says something most revealing here, he says because their deeds are evil. I would have thought that people’s deeds were evil because they love darkness, but I see here that they love darkness because their deeds are evil.

Examine your ways and see(decide) whose side you are on
