Dominus Illuminatio Mea
Psalm 27:1a “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?”
The above Latin phrase comes from the incipit of Psalm 27 “The LORD is my light,” and has been the motto of the famous British University of Oxford, the oldest university in the English-speaking world, for centuries. This motto appears on the university’s coat of arms and points to the recognition and conviction of the university professors for centuries that there is no real understanding and knowledge except that what is received through the LORD of the Bible.
The Bible clearly states that the LORD is the light.
The LORD Jesus testified in the same way that “I am the Light of the World.” (John 8:12)
History shows that in individual lives and in society there was only light when people have studied, learned and lived the Word of God.
Sad to say, many universities of the world – and it starts already with the kindergartens and continues on with the elementary and secondary schools – try to ignore or even ban the Word of God – including the University of Oxford. Is it surprising that the world is racing toward the deepest darkness?
Multitudes wants us still to believe that there are other possibilities for the enlightenment of humanity. All of these attempts lead us to a dead end.
We have only one message, authorized from above, for the children not to walk in darkness, and it is to confess from the bottom of our hearts: “The LORD is my light and salvation.” Indeed, “Whom shall I fear?
For Christ, Sebastian Edelmann
