The weapons of spiritual warfare

Ephesians 6:10-20 contains the most detailed set of instructions on a Christian’s engagement in spiritual warfare. Some verses in Scripture are difficult to interpret at first, but if you first go to clear passages like this one, then all the other passages become more clear too. The main point is “stand strong”, not “cast” or […]

Good spiritual warfare

Spiritual warfare is a good warfare. It is not some extraordinary exercise for the exorcists, or some unusual experience of the evil. Spiritual warfare is a good warfare.
