Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

  1. King sure knew what he was talking about, Chris, thanks for sharing that quote. The two sentences in it are great takes on 1 John 4:18 (“perfect love drives out fear”) and John 1:4-5 (“In him [Jesus] was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”).


  2. John1:4-5 was my grandma’s favourite verse and I just read this and remembered sitting on her lap playing with her beaded necklace and reading her scrapbook of collected poems and verses.
