"The armour of light"

In these days of modern warfare, darkness has come to be thought of as a means of safety. Big cities, and indeed whole countrysides, are blacked out by night, in order that people may be kept safe from enemy attacks; and so, to many, complete darkness spells protection. But this kind of security is not that of which Paul writes when he says, "Let us put on the armour of light."

According to a dictionary, "armor" means an offensive or defensive weapon, any clothing or covering worn to protect one's person in battle. The same dictionary defines "light" as the opposite of darkness, as mental or spiritual illumination or enlightenment.
