Life Is the Light of Men

[Original article in German]

Every thoughtful reader of the Bible finds in the first chapter of John's Gospel a convincing statement as to the appearing of Christ, Truth, and the spiritual origin of man. There he reads: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. ... All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. ... That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world."

Christ Jesus established proof of this fact in every direction. To him there was but one divine Life in all its perfection and completeness. He never acknowledged as real so-called inherited traits or diseases. Beyond material appearances he saw the child of God, who draws upon God's abundance fully and completely by reason of his sonship. How keenly and authoritatively, for instance, he enlightened his disciples when they asked him about the cause of the congenital blindness of a certain man! "Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him," he declared.
