What we talked about

More about MG Fuller.

Is spiritual warfare real? What is it?

Where do we see spiritual warfare mentioned in Scripture?

Are all believers involved in spiritual warfare, or only the really “good Christians”?

Is it possible to be a pacifist when it comes to spiritual warfare? Can we just ignore spiritual warfare and refuse to participate in it?

What are some other common misconceptions about spiritual warfare?

When it comes to being a soldier in this spiritual war that we face, how do we fight a spiritual battle as beings in physical bodies?

A question from Cadet Joshua Fonseca at West Point: How can we prepare ourselves to be fighting both a kinetic battle and spiritual warfare?

One more question from Cadet Fonseca: What are the ways that you see spiritual warfare occurring or manifesting day to day when leading soldiers, both inside and outside of a combat environment?

Books that MG Fuller recommends that offer a good, foundational study of spiritual warfare (no affiliate links).

Final thoughts about spiritual warfare—one big thing that MG Fuller says he has learned in his years of study:

“When Satan (or one of his subordinates) realizes that his attack has not pulled you away from God, but instead pushed you toward him, he will withdraw. God tolerates Satan (right now) for only one main reason—the warfare thrusts us into being more like Christ.”

    Terrific episode, Josh! Well done. Great guest speaker on a very important and relevant topic. MG Fuller speaks with authority on the topic and his emphasis on the Bible and Jesus are critical lessons to learn. I continue to learn from these podcasts and glad that OCF makes them available.
