    In Luke 11:35, how can light be darkness?

    Luke 11 NIV

    “33 “No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light. 34 Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are healthy,[g] your whole body also is full of light. But when they are unhealthy,[h] your body also is full of darkness. 35 See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness. 36 Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be just as full of light as when a lamp shines its light on you.” “

    The Lord is saying that make sure what you think is light within you is truly light and not darkness. Light is truth and truth is light. If what is in you in not truth then it is not light at all, but darkness.

    Light can not be darkness, for darkness is the absence of light. But if someone thinks they are walking in truth but they are really walking in deception then they are not walking in light, but they are walking in darkness.
