Christians are always at war but it’s not carnal warfare. Rather it is a battle for the minds and hearts of men.   Paul put it this way: “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds.” (2 Corinthians 10:4) While there have been those who have waged war in the name of Christ, there is no jihad in pure Christianity. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal.

Paul names two things that we are to seek to accomplish in this spiritual war. First, he writes, “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God.”   That is, we expose and defeat all false teachings of men. Second, Paul adds, “And bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” That is, capture the minds and hearts of men with the truth of God so that they will become obedient to Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:5)

How are we to accomplish this? As we have opportunity, speak to others about the truth. Use tracts. Enroll friends in our Bible Correspondence Course. Not everyone will do the same thing, but each of us should have his own plan for reaching others.
