The saying, “what happens in the dark will come to the light.” Could potentially mean something different to what we know now.
Generally the saying implies that what you do in secret will be exposed. This is true, but I began to think about those who do get away with secret things and are yet to be exposed.
For these situations, I came to the realisation and understanding that the saying may have religious connotations.
As we know, biblically, God is light. The idea of what you do in secret will be exposed may not necessarily be that obvious. Instead, what we do on earth and believe is secret, is seen by God, who is the light. When judgement day or the day of your death occurs, you and your secret deeds will be brought to the light, which is God.
Essentially, what that teaches is, God knows the secret things we do and will judge us for it, even if we are not held accountable on earth. There is no escaping what you’ve done in the dark, as through religious implications, you’ll be exposed and Judged for it by God.
Thankfully, we have the grace of God and his mercy is always constant. So forgiveness can be asked for, and with God you know your sins will be forgotten once you’ve been forgiven.
