Our Weapons are Spiritual

J.C. Ryle descibes the Christian's battles in Holiness:

"Unlike the battles of the world, true Christianity fights in a realm that does not depend upon physical strength, the strong arm, the quick eye or the swift foot. Conventional weaponry does not come into play. Rather, its weapons are spiritual, and faith is the axis upon which the battle turns."

A good reminder that our battle is not ultimately political, but spiritual, just as Paul challenged us in 2 Corinthians 10:3-4:

…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…
