We have an enemy. We must be prepared to fight and do battle against him. Christianity is not for softies. Wimps need not apply. We are commanded to “put on the full armor of God” (Ephesians 6.11) and... GET READY TO RUMBLE! Our battle is not “against flesh and blood, but against… the spiritual forces of evil in heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6.12). The best way to keep a “good conscience” is to remember people aren’t the enemy. “The spiritual forces of evil” is our ultimate enemy.
When we “promote controversies rather than God’s work”, we lose sight of the goal which, of course, is love (1st Timothy 1.4-5). Jesus said, “Love your enemies” (Matthew 5.44). Paul, quoting Solomon, said, “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink” (Romans 12.20; Proverbs 25.21-22). This response takes the focus of the attack (and counter-attack) off people engaged in conflict and places it on the devil, where it belongs.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but... against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of
evil in heavenly realms.”
"Let's get ready to rumble!" is a trademarked catchphrase notably used by Michael Buffer, American Boxing and Professional Wrestling announcer.
