THE BIBLE IS LIGHT... SO, TURN IT ON AND YOU WILL NOT GET LOST IN THE DARKNESS !!!

There can be no color unless there is light. Colors are just the reflection of certain wave lengths of light and all other wave lengths are absorbed by the object. If there is no light to reflect, then we get black. Black is not a color, it is the absence of color. The intensity of the color is also governed by the intensity of light. The brighter the light, the more intense the color becomes… We must also keep in mind that every individual sees the same color differently and it is unique to the person. This is because each of our brains is different and interprets what we are seeing slightly differently. This is not to say that one person may see something blue and another person sees that same object as green, but there will be small differences, and each of us sees it slightly different…

The Bible and Christianity are very similar to light and color. The Bible is the light and the individual reflects the doctrine in the Bible just as light reflects from an object. Some reflect very little and their color is very dull and muted. Others reflect the doctrine with great enthusiasm and their colors are bright and glorious. And then there are those who are just plain black… The intensity to the biblical doctrine determines how brightly we will shine both to the world and to God…

Different types of light can alter the appearance of colors and not give us an accurate tone of that color. Artificial light makes colors look differently than sunlight and again this is true with Christians. Depending upon from which bible a person receives their doctrine will determine the accuracy of the lesson in that bible and unfortunately, most people have very little color or accuracy of the lessons because they choose to use an alter version of the bible. God gave us His translation and there is no greater color or light than God, and so the doctrine from His Bible will give the student the brightest and most true light as they study the lessons that have been given to us…

We are told in the Bible that we are the light of the world, but some of us give off so little light that we get lost on our way. Just like understanding how we see and get colors, the Bible increases our light the more we study and learn those teachings. The more we know, the brighter we get and can find our way without any problems, and perhaps give off enough light to help others find their way also…

And, just like light, each of us will see and receive the doctrine of the Bible in slightly different ways. We must remember that the Bible was written for each one of us individually and God will show us what we need individually as we need it. Others will read the same passage and get a slightly different lesson that was meant only for them, but the overall meaning of the particular lesson will have the same impact on all who read it, it just will have a little something special in it that was meant just for each of us. If we are supposed to light the world, then let us do it with the brightest light and let our light be followed by others who only walk in darkness !!!
