June 09 – Darkness and Light

tfh sunriseNothing, it seems, really takes place in the dark anymore. Police in Buffalo New York are being investigated after being caught on camera beating a handcuffed man. The cruel act which took place in the dark, was filmed by a passerby and uploaded to You Tube. Someone has said that the idea of an all-seeing conscience is no less troubling now than it was when most people believed in a God Who is ever present, all powerful and and all-knowing. John, in his gospel wrote on the subject with the words, Bible where the whole verse says, “ men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.” How good to know that John also says, “God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” Our kind Heavenly Father is “ not willing that any should perish.” He sent His Son so that need not happen to any.
