I read a super good explanation of what “outer darkness”
One title was about “outer darkness & grace” the 2nd title was about Matthew 22 and the Wedding Celebration.
Their view was that the people/man in the wedding banquet was a saved forgiven believer in heaven/millineum but had not lived for Christ very well and that is why he did not have the right wedding clothes. The wedding banquet was a “party” celebration of faithful believers who lived for Christ and will be greatly rewarded for their sacrifices and will rule and reign with Christ in His Kingdom. The believers who are forgiven and declared righteous, so Entered the kingdom, but lived selfish lives for themselves and not for Christ, will be thrown out of the “Rewards & Honors Banquet” because they were not worthy of any Rewards, and will NOT rule and reign with Christ. So the outer darkness is still in heaven or millineum but those people or man are not going to be rewarded greatly and will be the “poor” of the kingdom so to speak. The man thrown out of the banquet into outer darkness was a saved forgiven believer who has eternal life, but the darkness is the night life since jewish weddings were usually done at night time. Outer darkness is not loss of salvation and hell because how did the man get into the banquet in the kingdom if he was not saved with eternal life? Would he not have already been thrown into hell before the Kingdom started as the Bible says? Not all believers will be rewarded and not all will rule with Christ in His eternal government. And those rewards, honors, privileges, and extra special closer relationship and fellowship time with the Lord will be super super great and desirable, so those who lived for the temporary pleasures, rewards, and fame and glory on earth instead of seeking God’s fame and glory to be given to faithful believers will be weeping and gnashing their teeth at how stupid and foolish they were and now they will have less pleasures, honors, fame, and rewards for eternity. Of course it will still be good for them, just not as good as it could have been.

Epistles of John our brother says “IF” we walk in the light as He is in the light. God no doubt is light and there is no darkness in Him. However, as believers our being in the light as He is and is in the light or being in darkness are conditional. We have the provision to return to the light by the blood of Jesus Christ. Light exposes our condition so if we confess we are short of God’s glory and our fallen nature, as well as, our trespasses when enlightened we are cleansed and forgiven so we can continue to enjoy fellowship with God, The apostles, and all believers!
So even after we are saved IF we walk in darkness, separated from God’s presence, and not in the light we obviously do not lose our salvation, a believer/child of God cannot be unborn, there must be some type of discipline for those believers, i.e. outer darkness (more severe form of darkness being left out of the marriage feast of the Lamb, due to habitually living in darkness after initial salvation.).
