Einstein and the Luminous Nazarene

img_0297.jpg“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective” (James 5:16 NIV).

Albert Einstein became passionate about the science of light, and he intuitively sensed there must be a spiritual quality locked within its nature. He explored the possibilities and recognized supernatural light in the person of Jesus, calling him “the luminous Nazarene.”

“As a child, I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene . . . . No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life. Jesus is too colossal for the pen of phrase-mongers, however artful. No man can dispose of Christianity with a bon mot.” ~Albert Einstein

As brilliant as he was, Einstein never fully embraced the light and salvation of Jesus. It is not enough to admire the Light of the World from a distance. To receive the benefits of God, we must allow His intense light to shine in the darkness of our hearts, revealing all things that are at war with Him.
