“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.”
(1 John 1:5-10)
John here is saying God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. If there are any false teachers or wolves in sheep’s clothing, or any others who claim to have fellowship with God, and at the same time continue to live according to the standards of darkness, sin and corruption, there is no way around the conclusion that they are lying about having fellowship with God!
Sin must be dealt with if we are to walk in the light. By confessing our sins, we will find God faithful and just, and He will forgive us and cleanse us from unrighteousness.
If we say that we have not sinned, that is much different than saying that we have no sin. This is denying we have ever really sinned at all! This makes God to be a liar, and His word is not in us.
There is no darkness in God what so ever, only pure light and righteousness is in Him! So walk in the light and walk with God!
All glory to God
