The SKANDALON is a "cause for stumbling," period. EN AUTWi /does/ refer to
the light. "The one who love his brother abides in light, and there is not
a cause for stumbling in it (i.e., the light)."
In other words, if you are in the light you see where you are walking and
won't trip over anything. :-)
