Exposing Darkness

October 12, 1985l

"Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them..." (Ephesians 5:11)

How can we do this without even mentioning what they do in secret?

"Sinful people do not like separation, because it leaves them exposed.  Sin hates exposure!  Therefore, sinful man has mounted a campaign to destroy exposure, and the Light (Christ) that exposes them.  To do this, they must destroy all means of 'being separate'."  (a church newsletter)

The deeds of darkness are exposed when they are left standing alone because Christians have separated from them. 

The blind are not exposed so long as they can mingle and move in a crowd with a few people who can see.  But when those who can see remove themselves from the crowd, the blind are left helpless and exposed.
