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 believe that Satan is real.
When we are in darkness we believe lies.
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 can pray for our oppressors to see the light.
The light of freedom from fear.
The light of love.
We are born into darkness.
Life is a process of learning.
We make mistakes.
We learn from our experience.
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.
