Walter H. Steinke was inspired to write his new book, “Vanishing Light: The Separation of the Christian Church . . . From the World” (published by Trafford Publishing) when he noticed the general apathy of churches and the public toward the truth of the Bible’s Scriptures. “I wanted to address the misinformation that is prevalent about the Christian Church as a result of this apathy,” he explains.

Vanishing Light” is a thought-provoking, controversial discussion on the Christian church and the “world” of non-Christians. “In these last days, Steinke says, the relationship of the Christian Church and the World have become blurred to the point of being scarcely distinguishable.”

Steinke explains how Christians have a twofold mission: to edify one another in love and also to be a light in this world, giving evidence of their faith to benefit others.

An excerpt from “Vanishing Light”:

“Here the World is spoken of as the fullness of the Earth. This constitutes the dominion of Man over all living creatures and all of Man’s works in assuming this dominion, as well as in populating the Earth. All political divisions usually bounded by borders between nations with their own forms of government, are of Man and their differences. Another form of divisions among men, which does not recognize national borders, are religious in nature and known as World religions. These have varying concepts of God or a higher power than that of Man; some even exalting Man as the highest being in existence, and thus the authority. It is this chaotic condition among men that is meant by the term, the ‘World’ in Scripture. This is outside of the Kingdom of God where Jesus Christ is King.”

“Vanishing Light” looks into the attempts to expose how this light is vanishing from today’s world, and the consequences that it is creating.
