Day 7: Darkness

σκοτία — skotia

Often a metaphor for ignorance and sin: darkness

All had one been light and life and beauty, a perfect world created to be enjoyed. Contrary to the serpent’s rhetoric, God really had said and they really had disobeyed and now they really must reap the consequences.

This is the reat Conflict of the Epic Saga of Grace, sin shatters the idyllic life and darkness falls in the heart of man. It would appear that Satan had won for God is light and light cannot have fellowship with darkness.  The black blot of sin drove a wedge between man and God and it could neither go unnoticed nor unpunished.

The shadow that had loomed over Eden had become an all-encompassing darkness wrapped around mankind. And now, we are all born into it, blind and helpless.
