    This is a old house and the wiring that is coming from the light is that BX-cable and the new wiring that I am trying to use is Romex Simpull 14/2

    Here's a link with photos describing how to wire a light fixture with a wall switch for your type of configuration :

    It describes how to use the 14/2 romex for the switch loop.
