"The armour of light"

Light seems altogether too insubstantial to be referred to as armor. Yet Paul writes in his Epistle to the Romans, "Let us put on the armour of light." Rom. 13:12. Can the protection of spiritual light be sufficient protection, not only against temptation but against disease and crime? The answer is an emphatic "Yes!" The Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, tells us, "'Let there be light,' is the perpetual demand of Truth and Love, changing chaos into order and discord into the music of the spheres." Science and Health, p. 255.

Sunlight is what makes the sun evident. Not only does this light reveal—enable us to see—but it is a force in its own right. It will change things, as anyone knows who has seen curtains fade. Sunlight also supplies plants with energy, which, through photosynthesis, changes air and water into a chemical form that enables the plants to grow.
