Jn. 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men..... 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. What is the "light of men"? "the life was the light of men" When is this light given men? "which ligheth every man that COMETH INTO THE WORLD" - upon entrance into this world - the light of life. Unless you believe that Christ gives ETERNAL life to "every man that cometh into the world" then what is given is PHYSICAL LIFE as PHYSICAL LIFE "was the light of men."
