My name is Theophan. I started this account originally solely on conspiracies, when I first came to believe in God and the Bible years ago. I changed my account to reflect the name “extinguish the light.” The light I was referring to was the false light of Satan in 2 Corinthians 11:14, it became my mantra to fight against the adversary who seeks to deceive.
This is indeed a spiritual warfare we fight against (Ephesians 6:12) and a fight against our own passions/flesh (Galatians 5:24). But first and foremost, we need to keep our eyes fixed upon knowing God before anything else. Everything without Him is a fruitless pursuit. The zeal against evil is necessary, but if we use our zeal for communion with God we will naturally oppose evil. So loving God and following Christ’s commandments in of itself fights evil.
This page now reflects “The Uncreated Light” of God, of which the entire point of all our lives is to reunite with (2 Peter 1:4). “Do not fight to expel the darkness from the chambers of your soul. Open a tiny aperture for light to enter, and the darkness will disappear.” Let us strive to live in the light of Jesus Christ and for the light of Jesus Christ to live in us. He who is the uncreated light, how we marvel at Thee!
