Scientists have said that light consists of two primary colours. Red and Blue.
As we know, plants need sunlight to grow. So some scientists decided to conduct an experiment called photosynthesis to see how well a plant would
grow if natural light was separated. Blue from red.
they put the plant under blue light for a time then changed it to red light. They found that the plant did not grow very well under either of these
lights. But when they combined the lights together to get natural light the plant grew at the normal rate.
So, to compare this with christianity.
Some christians preach purely on the God of love. The God of mercy, all forgiving, kind, helpful, humble, meek, faithful, always ready to listen and
answers all prayers, and so on.
Lets say that this concept represents the Red light.
Other christians preach purely on the lord terror. A God who takes vengeance upon all disobedience, the God who does not aquit the wicked, and does
not tolerate sin, the God who always says to repent or you'll go to hell, the God of great wrath and anger, and so on.
Lets also say that this concept represents the Blue light
Both of these concepts about God are true. We could say that they are both lights of the Gospel, because it is all written in the Bible.
But both these concepts are far from being the natural light if they are used on their own.
Many christians in the world take only one of the concepts and preach on that only. that Is why they fail. this is why people ignore what they say and
do not believe them. Also this is why there seems to be so many christian hypocrites in the world. This is why so many people find so many faults,
inconsistencies and contradictions with all these biased doctrines.
The plant could not grow in either the blue or red lights. But it grew in the combining of these lights together.
The same is for a christian. If they adopt either the God of love or the God of wrath concept, people will easily find fault with them and in what
they say. Also that christian will not grow in faith, knowledge or wisdom in christ. It is only in the combining of both of these concepts that a
christian persons life will peak to others. They will also grow in christ.
So to conclude.
To all christians out there. Do not use biased methods to put forth Gods word. For ot os clearly written all throughout the Bible that God is a God
of great love. His mercies are higher than the heavens. To those who repent he forgives and abundantly pardons and remembers their sin no more. But
also God is a God of great wrath. A lord of terror. He WILL take vegeance on the children of disobedience. He is a God of Judgement and justice, and
in his day he WILL not spare.
We are meant to be the light of the world, but if we try to separate that light (i.e. blue from red). Then we will not be the light that christ meant
us to be at all. So the reason why the many people of this world are not understanding the message of christ is because of us separating that
