Walking in Darkness

A man walked along in darkness. He was peaceful. A great light came to 
him and frightened him because he saw great dangers all around.

"I do not like the light," he cried. "I will not suffer it." So the light 
gradually faded away and he no longer saw the dangers. 

Then the darkness said, "I will be your light. I will show you good 
and pleasant things."

Then the darkness appeared light about the man and he saw pleasant 
and pretty things that delighted him and made him feel good. "It is so 
good to be free," he said. "I am not afraid. Fear is bad."

"Poor, tragic fool," said the Light. "The way of the wicked is as darkness: 
they know not at what they stumble. 
-- Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness; 
-- The wise man’s eyes are in his head; but the fool walketh in darkness: 
-- Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for 
      light, and light for darkness; 
      that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" Pr 4:19 Pr 2:13 Ec 2:14 Isa 5:20

Pr 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and 
reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

Joh 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light 
of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but 
shall have the light of life.

2 Cor. 11:14, 15 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed 
into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also 
be transformed as the ministers of righteousness.
