Calvinists and those from the reformed religions like to use John 3:19 to support their false beliefs of total depravity. Total Depravity meaning no one can believe in God after learning of Him. John 3:19-23 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.” John 3:19 does not say all people love darkness instead of the light. John 3:19 is about those who do love darkness instead of the light. John 3:21 shows us that there are people who come into the light. I will use two fictional people to try to explain the scriptures 3:19-21. I will call the people Annette Joy and Brandon Pine. They are not Christians. They are two movie stars who are living together. They have much fame and money. They have good looks, and many fans. They do many things for charity. They feed poor people. They build homes for the homeless. They adopt orphans. They do many good things. All good things are from God, but not all people who do good say they have done good through God. They do not credit God. They will not do that, because they love darkness more than they love the light. To come to the light and let it be known that what they do right is actually through God would also mean they then would have to stop doing that which is sinful. They would also have to worship God. Therefore, this they do not do. However, there are people who live by the truth, and they come into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God. There are people who do right and want all to know they only do so through God.
