Can anyone suggest what the relationship might be between the stuff that emanates, on the one hand, from my light bulb, and the sun, and a fire, and, on the other hand, the stuff referred to in Doctrine and Covenants 88: 7-13? Are they different forms of the same thing? Are they completely different things that happen to use the same word - light- to describe them? Is the word we use for the stuff coming from my light bulb simply an analogy for the light referred to in the scriptures? Or is there some other answer? We have a guy in our stake with a Ph.D in physics, with a special interest in light, and he is not aware of any LDS or scientific studies that have considered this question, but the scriptures seem to suggest that there is a connection between these two types of light.
How do I explain this scripture, "Ye are the light of the world. A city set upon a hill cannot be hid." I'm trying to explain it to my friend by summarizing its meaning and how to apply it in our lives. Are there also any other scriptures besides Matthew: 5: 14 that pertain to this one? Thanks
