Why evil people hate the light - Bible talk

Jesus said anybody who does evil hates the light and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed

So what is this light?

Light can mean many things from forgiveness to healing to revelation

But in this context I believe it is a symbol for reflection

When you walk in the light you reflect both the word of Gods and also the glory of God

And those who do evil will hate you for reflecting something they have rejected and want no part in

I knew a woman from a family of three - 2 on welfare and one earning minimum wage who borrowed $10,000 to buy gifts for a man who pressured her to spend money on him

I said during a church meal I paid for all our social outings because her parents were broke and she had debt to pay off

And even though I gave her hundreds to help her pay off her debt she viewed me as the enemy for exposing her financial poverty to people when she tried to win friends by pretending to be rich

Than her boyfriend hated me because I complained to him about how I was angry at a mutual friend of his for inviting me to McDonald’s and leaving after thirty minutes knowing I spent $14.00 on my food and expected my money to last longer

And her boyfriend became angry with me for having such unnecessary and restrictive moral standards and gossiped about me to his friend to punish me for trying to be conservative with my money

One of the pastors at my old church would get angry at me every time I had an intelligent idea about the bible and tell me my opinion was wrong

There was another guy from church who accused me of lying constantly because I had unusually good luck since God kept answering my prayers and the repeated stories and testimonies I shared about my life were statistically improbable to him so he thought I was making stuff up

The fact is, evil doers hate those who reflect God’s Justice, God’s standard, God’s beauty, Gods wisdom or God’s love because it exposes their ugliness to the world

I actually believe the reason the church people did not like me was because I had higher morals and they were offended by my fidelity to Gods virtues
