You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.
13 But [de] all things [pas] that are reproved [elegcho]
are made manifest [phaneroo] by [hupo] the light: [phos] for [gar] whatsoever [pas] doth make
manifest [phaneroo] is [esti] light. [phos] KJV-Interlinear
13 But all
things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that
becomes visible is light. NASB
All things that doctrine reproves, admonished, declared false or wrong or evil, are done so by means of truth (light).
Bad things never reveal bad things. Bad things are always revealed by truth. Truth is the substance or source of making all things visible, discernible, revealed, obvious. One cannot see in the dark.
You need light in order to see. You need perceptive abilities, whether your eyes, your mind, your hands and so forth, in order to figure something out, or to identify something, or to be able to distinguish one thing from another. And truth is the foundation and source for figuring out life, for figuring out reality.
Otherwise you walk in the dark, disoriented, under some delusion and will never get things straight.
That is why there is so much religion full of disinformation out there. People simply lack truth, so they cannot discover the lies. Unbelievers who pursue lies fool only themselves and will never be able to recognize the truth.
Believers who pursue lies fool only themselves and will never be able to recognize the truth.
It takes truth in order to discover truth. And you must study truth in order to learn truth.
Residing in lies will never reveal truth. Resisting Gods mandates, resisting your daily study leaves you in the dark.
