Light Versus Darkness

11 Do not have fellowship with [people who practice] worthless deeds of darkness [i.e., sinful living], but expose them instead. 12 For it is shameful even to talk about the things they do in private. 13 But when all [such] things are exposed by the light [i.e., the truth], they become [clearly] visible [i.e., their true nature is revealed], for everything so revealed becomes illuminated. [Note: Possibly this means "it is light that clearly reveals everything"].
