22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
14 "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.
5 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
2 Samuel 22
29 You are my lamp, O LORD; the LORD turns my darkness into light.
28 He redeemed my soul from going down to the pit, and I will live to enjoy the light.
6 Many are asking, "Who can show us any good?" Let the light of your face shine upon us, O LORD.
28 You, O LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.
9 For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.
3 Send forth your light and your truth, let them guide me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell.
12 I am under vows to you, O God; I will present my thank offerings to you. 13 For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.
15 Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, O LORD.
11 Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in heart.
1 Praise the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty. 2 He wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent 3 and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters. He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind.
130 The unfolding of your words gives light it gives understanding to the simple.
5 This is what God the LORD says-he who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it: 6 "I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, 7 to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.
16 I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.
19 The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory.
9 Because I have sinned against him, I will bear the LORD's wrath, until he pleads my case and establishes my right. He will bring me out into the light; I will see his righteousness.
38 He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.

Yes, the One is All.
God does not require worship in any way because God is not selfish. We are here freely, meaning God freely gives itself to us. God is unconditional love, even the most horrible and insane murderers in history had life, meaning God does not choose favorites either.
We are created in God's image, only some have perverted that image for their own gain. We're all in this together, but some want more than others so they lie and kill to get it.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

All of this hoo-haa is just perversion of the Word. Just as all religions are perversion.
There is God, and Jesus our Saviour - man is not perfect, and can never be. We look at the truths that Jesus taught us -
No one comes to the Father - except through Jesus, our Saviour.
This is all new-age bunk - just as catholicism is old age bunk.
