Light: Detested by the Wicked

Resource Toolbox


A sluttish housemaid when scolded for the untidiness of the chambers exclaimed, 'I'm sure the rooms would be clean enough if it were not for the nasty sun which is always showing the dirty corners.' Thus do men revile the gospel because it reveals their own sin. Thus all agitations for reforms in Church and State are opposed, and all manner of mischief attributed to them as if they created the evils which they bring to light. The lover of the right courts anything which may manifest the wrong, but those who love evil have never a good word for those disturbing beams of truth which show up the filthy corners of their hearts and lives.
