“And that I am the true light that lighteth every man that cometh into the world.” —Doctrine & Covenants 93:2
“Light dispels darkness. When light is present, darkness is vanquished and must depart. More importantly, darkness cannot conquer light unless the light is diminished or departs. When the spiritual light of the Holy Ghost is present, the darkness of Satan departs.” —Robert D. Hales
