3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
What a blessing to see the practical advice provided over the last two days as we considered challenges to Bible Study. We now switch our attention to the Discipline of Spiritual Warfare, and Carolina has a question. As a reminder, you are being asked to play the part of Libby and share your thoughts on the challenges people are having. Please share your thoughts and check the comments throughout the day to see what others are saying to Sarah.
I actually feel a bit awkward writing to you about the topic of Spiritual Warfare. I know that evil exists and I know the Bible says a lot about evil powers, but talk of spiritual warfare evokes childish thoughts of boogie men and monsters in my closet. I certainly wouldn’t be comfortable discussing this topic with my work colleagues. What I am trying to say Libby is that of all the Disciplines this is probably the one that I keep most on the “low down”. I don’t want to get all weird about spiritual warfare but I also don’t want to be naïve about my adversary. Libby, how do you relate to spiritual warfare?
