spiritual warfare

Dale Cresap's picture

Is it proper for one faith to go to war against another, even if they hold irreconcilable doctrines? This has been tried before. Can you find anyone today who thinks the Crusades were a good idea? Do not repeat a mistake. You have a battle to fight, but the weapons of your warfare are not carnal, and neither are your enemies. For I have called you to contend with dark spiritual principalities and powers. Prosecute these attacks with vigor and determination, yet in this world be as wise as serpents and as innocent as doves. Not only are you not to perpetrate evil, but you are to turn the other cheek to those who would harm you, that you may be the children of your Father in heaven who will defend you.
