When we are in darkness we believe that we have to be stronger than evil and ignorance.
We believe that superior violence wins out.
When we are in darkness we are afraid.
And our fear makes us violent.
But if we can pray in faith to God He will show us another way.
A non-violent way of light and love.
We are born into darkness.
Life is a process of learning.
We make mistakes.
We learn from our experience.
The teacher is God.
When we draw close to God through love we begin to see another way.
We do not have to beat our opponents.
We can help them (non-violently) to see - through love.
We can pray for them.
And they will be opponents no more.
