John 3:17-21

17For aGod did not send his Son into the world bto condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 cWhoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not dbelieved in the name of the only Son of God. 19 eAnd this is the judgment: fthe light has come into the world, and gpeople loved the darkness rather than the light because htheir works were evil. 20 iFor everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light jlest his works should be exposed. 21But whoever kdoes what is true lcomes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”
