Shooting at scarecrows

It seems, in my observation, that many Christian men are starting to wake up to the fact that they are under attack. As they awaken, they realize this attack is everywhere. Their wives and children are rebellious. Their churches encourage and laud the rebellion in their homes, and attack them for their faith, calling them bigots for opposing the new openly lesbian pastor, and heretics for taking their family out of that toxic environment and into a “hateful, backwards, non-accepting church.”

The government teaches their children to disrespect and disobey them, and so do the expensive private Christian schools. It forbids them from buying and selling if they are true to their Christian beliefs. It offers their wives cash and prizes as the temptation to blow up the marriage.

Realizing this, many Christian men are beginning to try to fight back.

They’re taking their shots as they appear.

Wife is rebellious? Fire a shot back. Kid is rebellious? Fire a shot back. Pastor encourages rebellion? Fire a shot. Christian school is teaching the children that be “accepting” of gays is a Christian value? Fire a shot.

Scarecrows and human shields are being riddled with bullets, while the enemy remains untouched and laughing.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. —Ephesians 6:12 (KJV)

Remember who the enemy is.

Remember that spiritual battles are fought in the spiritual realm.

If you aren’t viewing your enemy as a spiritual force, and fighting in the spiritual plane, you are seeing only a sliver of what is actually occurring.

When you see an attack, look for the spiritual force behind it.

You are a Christian man. You believe in demons and the devil. Take them seriously. Be prepared to cast them out. This is where the battle lies.

  1. While we must remember that we have spiritual enemies, this does not lessen the fact that we have flesh and blood enemies as well. Many look at the passage from Ephesians and think that our only enemies are those spiritual ones.

    There are enemies of the cross of Christ in the church. There are enemies of the cross of Christ outside the church. They serve a different God and walk in darkness. They are deceived, yes, but they LOVE the darkness.

    So wrestle against the powers of the air, but prepare for battle on the ground as well. They are warring against the Lamb and, by extension, us.

    We must never lose sight of the fact that we are at war.
