Spiritual Warfare Part 2

Good evening Alamo Stone! In case you weren’t here, last week we kicked off a two-part teaching on Spiritual Warfare under our series Alamo Stone @ the Movies. We connected with the movie Wonder Woman, and I chose that one because the movie features a group of highly trained and equipped warriors (the Amazons) who live in isolation, ignoring the fact that a world war is raging beyond the boundaries of their little island paradise. But when war comes to their island, Diana takes on the role of Wonder Woman on a mission to stop the war by finding and defeating Ares, the god of war. From this movie, I want to relate that we as believers have to be careful not to fall into that trap of thinking that it’s okay for us to live in ignorance or isolation from the spiritual war that is going on in the world around us. I also like the fact that Wonder Woman immediately recognized that the true enemy in this war is not the Germans, it is this spiritual enemy who is behind the scenes influencing the mere mortals to destroy each other in war.
