Profound words from a man of great wisdom who lived that reality through greater hostility than I can imagine:
Through violence you may murder a murderer, but you can’t murder murder. Through violence you may murder a liar, but you can’t establish truth. Through violence you may murder a hater, but you can’t murder hate through violence.
Darkness cannot put out darkness; only light can do that.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
Come, let us live in the light as he is in the light and put darkness to flight.
