2 Corinthians 6 - IVP New Testament Commentaries
Light and darkness as descriptive of the way of the righteous and the wicked, respectively, are common imagery in the wisdom literature of the Old Testament (for example, "The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness...
In Paul's writings, light is christological in orientation. The lot of all is darkness until God shines the light of the glorious gospel about Christ in our hearts (4:4, 6). This light makes ethical demands on its recipients in the form of fruit that is "good and right and true" (Eph 5:9; Hahn 1976:494-95).
To my way of thinking, if one FEELS that WAR is the most evil thing in the world, THAT person has been overcome by evil...
Leftists on blogs and forums are always quoting John Stuart Mill. Well, I looked up quotes on War. Mill's was the very best one I found, even better than Winston Churchill's;
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
John Stuart Mill (1806 - 1873)
You God haters, hate us Believers, and...You do it RELIGIOUSLY! The only thing I do religiously, is pray.
To shorten my thoughts on ALL OF THIS...ATHEISTS HAVE SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL... Thank you, Mick Jagger.
