The People in the Dark Room

    If you are sitting in a dark room with no windows, you can't see the objects in the room.  Even though the objects are there, you aren't aware of them because you're in darkness.  However, if someone turns on the light switch, the things previously hidden from your eyes are now obvious. 
    Don't get angry at people in spiritual darkness for not being able to see what's obvious to you.  Instead, bring them some spiritual light. (Matt. 5:14-16) --Kent Crockett
