Shall Christians do as Muslims do and resort to violence to create the kind of world that we want? No, for the Holy Spirit says,
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).
Yes, we want to pull down strongholds, but the ones we want to conquer live in people’s minds, and we bring those strongholds down by casting down the arguments they offer for their sinful lives.
Do you know how to persuade people to give up their arguments and bring their thoughts into captivity to the obedience of Christ?
