The Bible says we are at war.
Our wars are spiritual and doctrinal, not flesh and blood. We fight for power over mens souls and minds.
We fight against every thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God (2 Cor 10:3-5).
Our weapon is the word of God (Eph 6:17). Words can strike the heart of our target: souls and minds.
To shoot we must speak the words. To be accurate we must speak the right words. When the Bible is used without training or discernment harm can be done and the battle lost.
When we learn to rightly divide the word of God we become sharpshooters.
Christianity has a lot of big guns and stockpiles of ammunition that miss the mark. Often we shoot ourselves in the foot.
We don’t need bigger guns, we need more sharpshooters.
For His glory,
