Out Of The Darkness

Various Christian-professing churches regard the Holy Bible in very different ways. Some hold the Bible as Sacred and wholeheartedly strive to live by what it, by what God, actually says. Others seemingly also hold the Bible in high regard, to a point, but then carefully avoid or deny any Scriptures that don't meet with their personal approval. Others, even though they claim to be Christian, regard the Holy Bible merely as an inspiration for the writings of the founders of "their" church. And then there are those "churches" who actually hold the Holy Bible in contempt, in word or deed.

"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).

Toward The Light 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)

"Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son: In whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins" (Colossians 1:12-14 KJV)

"Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness." (1 Thessalonians 5:5 KJV)
