My name is Matthew, I hope to show people (in the same way I learned) that all incidents in your life lead to the same source, God.
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 “extinguish the light.” The light I’m referring to is the false light in 2 Corinthians 11:14, it became a mantra to fight against the adversary who seeks to deceive. I would eventually realize I was too focused on fighting the devil and neglecting the fight against myself. For it’s not only spiritual warfare we fight against (Ephesians 6:12) but 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.
The name Extinguish The Light now serves as a reminder to keep our zeal for God, the Orthodox faith, and against all that opposes our path to Theosis. For those who do not believe in God, I hope this site and my instagram will change your perspective.
