"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh,
for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh,
but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses."
2 Corinthians 10:3-4
The world may scorn our spiritual weapons, but it only does so because it doesn't understand the battle that rages around all of us daily. A battle not of earthly hands, but of the hands of Satan and his demons. It sounds so odd and dramatic to unbelievers to say such things, and that's just the way the enemy wants to keep it. As long as he can convince the world that he doesn't exist and that Christians are foolish to think he does, he keeps his strongholds intact. We who belong to the Lord don't fight spiritual battles with earthly weapons. We fight with the spiritual weapons Paul listed in Ephesians 6: the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of the gospel, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit. Against these divinely powerful weapons no fortress of evil can stand.
