“In the beginning was the Word; the Word was with God and the Word was God.” John 1:1

Some say “no” to the Word. They say “non-serviam — I will not serve you God.” Even believers can say it.

The consequence of that “no” is alienation, suffering, darkness, wars and spiritual death. The good news is that evil doesn’t get the last word.

“All that came to be had life in him, and that life was the light of men, a light shines in the dark, a light that darkness could not overpower.” John 1:4-5
