When Light Goes Dark

I try hard not be surprised or outraged by the behavior and beliefs of unbelievers. By nature and apart from grace, all of us are drawn to darkness. I shudder to think of where I would be without Jesus. What is concerning to me is when those who have affirmed and come into the light begin to go back into the dark.

When God’s people turn their back to the light, when they change what has always been true for God’s people in all places and at all times, there is a problem. We would do well to heed the warning of Isaiah about people who call what is evil good and what is dark light. May God keep all of us from going into spiritual exile.
