A visiting liberal theologian was talking with a master and said, "We have
found a way of interpreting the whole Bible that is in accordance with our
progressive and liberated beliefs."

At that moment, the power went out, and the room was plunged into darkness.

"Just a minute," the master said, and returned with a candle and some matches.
He lit the candle, and they talked for a while longer.

After a time, the theologian wanted to get off to bed, and the master said,
"Here, take this candle; it will light your way so that you will not stumble."

As the visitor received the candle, the master blew it out.
