Time for Light by Donald T. Williams

Time for Light

We live in a challenging time for believing Christians, and I have heard a number of them lament this, especially those still trying to be faithful when so many of their cohorts are being seduced by the Spirit of the Age. It is discouraging indeed. But it would be a waste to have been born in a time when we were not needed. And surely we are needed now!

So what should we do? Show the love of Christ with integrity, and witness to it with intelligence.

Not enough of us are doing that? Since when was God constrained to save by many rather than by a few? Do it anyway. The darker it grows outside, the brighter even our little lights will shine.

Donald T. Williams Ph.D., is Professor Emeritus of Toccoa Falls College and the author of Deeper Magic: The Theology Behind the Writings of C. S. Lewis (Square Halo Books, 2016) and Ninety-Five Theses for a New Reformation: A Road Map for Post-­Evangelical Christianity (Semper Reformanda Publications, 2021).
