Spiritual Warfare

If you teach the Bible very long, across different audiences, you'll run into people who have lots of questions about spiritual warfare. Sometimes they're coming from fearful or painful experiences. Other times they're simply very, very curious. In many cases people are loaded up with ideas and information that simply doesn't square with Scripture.

Here's my advice:

1. Don't allow this topic to become a focus point for their faith and life. Jesus needs to be the focus.

2. Get some accurate, trustworthy information. There's considerable goofiness on the Internet and in books and magazines. Go here: Spiritual Warfare 101.

3. Teach calmly, firmly, and carefully -- work only from Scripture.
