What's Done in the Dark Will Come to Light

What we do in the dark shall come to light is a condensed, interpretative verse of Luke 12:2-3. This verse explains how our deep, dark secrets or sins can rise to the surface despite our efforts to bury or keep them hidden. This blog post discusses the allegations, denial, and confessed abuse of Sean P. Diddy Combs against Cassandra 'Cassie' Ventura. In November 2023, Ms. Ventura settled a lawsuit against Mr. Combs for his alleged sex trafficking and sexual assault during their relationship; however, Mr. Combs vehemently denied the allegations, and his attorneys called the lawsuits and accusations as money grabs, baseless, or sickening.

Surveillance footage obtained by CNN on May 17, 2023, shows Mr. Combs's actions corroborating with Ms. Ventura's originally filed complaint - Mr. Combs chasing Ms. Ventura down the hallway of the InterContinental Hotel in Century City, Los Angeles, forcibly grabbing her by the back of her sweater, throwing her to the ground, and kicking her. While Ms. Ventura lies on the floor in a fetal position, Combs picks up her bags, kicks her again, and drags her back toward the hotel room. Allegedly, Mr. Combs paid the hotel $50,000 to obtain the video footage of his violent behavior.

On May 19, Mr. Combs posted an Instagram video apologizing for his actions displayed in the 2006 video. Some social media viewers and fans do not believe he's sincere because his apology came after a video surfaced showing his horrific actions toward Ms. Ventura.

Luke 12:2-3 states, For there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Therefore, whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. There is nothing we can do "secretly" on Earth that will not be known to God! We should confess our wrongdoings to Him because He knows all and sees all!

If Sean P. Diddy Combs wants a fresh start from his actions caught on camera, he can ask God for forgiveness and healing from the pain he may have experienced that caused him to inflict pain on others. Women abused by Mr. Combs or men, in general, should not cover up their wounds (i.e., emotional or physical) but seek healing from God and help from friends, family, or organizations that serve domestic violence victims.

Dr. Myles Munroe stated, When purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable.  God created us to bring glory and honor to Him by being fruitful and replenishing the Earth with people of His likeness. He did not create us to diminish the character or esteem of each other, but to love and treat one another with honor, respect, and unconditional love.
