Out Of The Darkness
by Wayne Blank
"Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness"
In the Bible, the true Church of God is sometimes called a woman (e.g. Revelation 12:17, see also Daughter of Zion), while a great false church, and her "daughters," are called a not-so-nice woman (Revelation 17:1-6).
At the same time, the Word of God (Word of God is actually dual in meaning; for how and why, see the Fact Finder question below) is a "light unto the world" (2 Peter 1:19). Those who honestly don't fear or hate the Word of God can see their church for what it is. Others avoid the Bible, they avoid the Light, because for them (and some of them know it), the doctrines of their church look much better in the dark.
True Christians, as they study the Word of God, thrive in the Light of God's Word. They don't fear it, they aren't hostile to it, they humbly and lovingly embrace it.
"For God, Who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." (2 Corinthians 4:6 KJV)
