Check the end of the post above. What do you see when you look in a mirror? You and your shadow of light. Are you the light or the shadow? If you are not the one in the image, then you are the one casting it. By looking in the image, you know yourself. Light reveals what it hits. True for me and you and all of us. We are ALL the ones casting the image if we are the image of God. We are His Children and His shadow. Jacob and Esau are both of us and we are equally both. Divide the light from the darkness and return to unity. God already made that trip yet never left where he started. We are simply collapsing the same wave within His Story. History is not ours.
I was with you until you used genesis...
27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
And he said let us create man in "our" image... God has no equal... and surely we are not the image of him...
God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.
More over he said, I create the light and the dark... good and evil... where as God has no darkness, and so called "evil can not touch him"
"It is he who exists as God and Father of everything, the invisible One who is above everything, who exists as incorruption, which is in the pure light into which no eye can look."
God has already judge us. It's all good. He keeps no records of wrongs. Only we can do that.
Which I agree with... unfortunately this God of the OT keeps records of any and all wrongs... and takes revenge for all wrongs.
It appears we do not know God or the Son yet.

Yes I know Day, another name for Jesus. The sun and moon that govern the natural day and night was not created yet.
Why do you seem to believe we cannot overcome all obstacles by the power of the Cross in Christ?

Actually I believe this is much simpler than everyone sees.
The bible tells us that all the rulers and authorities were put into place by him. And that we are to obey the laws that they put in place. So we can judge people who are law breakers based on the law that has been put in by the rulers. Since we know that God put the rulers in place to make the laws. But on matters not covered by the law we should not quarrel unless it is a matter of conscience.
Where as in one may be tempted to sin if not corrected.

Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you,

But nothing unclean will ever enter it, nor anyone who does what is detestable or false, but only those who are written in the Lamb's book of life.
