Dear Lighthouse Trails:
My name is ____________. I’m a former Hindu, metal head, New Age believer who denied my Savior back in my days until about five to six years ago when on a night of watching Youtube videos on all kinds of darkness, He showed me where my soul could end up. I’ve been a changed man ever since longing to know Him better each passing day until my physical time will expire here on Earth.
My wife belongs to a small group of people who still participate in their Catholic traditions though not full-blown as that in the Catholic Church. On this particular morning, I overheard one of the participants talking about how God comes to us disguised as light. This was learned from reading some book from [Catholic mystic] Richard Rohr. When I tried to confront my wife on the book, chapter and verse that speaks of an entity that comes disguised as light, she told me she does not take the Bible word for word or literally. Am I wrong for confronting her on that matter? I went to open my Bible to 2 Corinthians 11:14 to show her who actually comes disguised as an angel of light. She did not want to even look at the Bible where I was going to show her the literal words.
It is my understanding that Jesus Christ is the Light of the world and Almighty GOD is a consuming fire. To me, it makes absolutely no sense why Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father would have to disguise themselves as light for us to see them. I see them in the words of the Bible, and I need no other way to know who they are.
Sadly, my wife is being led astray by the group she belongs to and practicing Yoga. I still can’t get her to stop doing Yoga even though I have books and booklets on the subject. She refuses to read anything that contradicts her belief.
I now know that I am walking the lonely path that leads to our Lord and Savior. I will keep believing the Bible literally because the words written within that precious book are the inspired words of GOD and His Son, Lord Jesus Christ.
Please pray for my wife so she may have time to escape the broad road that she and her friends are on.
