For Narnia fans, let’s take a look at the magnitude of the battle of good and evil as best depicted in human dimension in the movie, Chronicles of Narnia.

Spiritual Warfare 2: Victory in the Lord

The preceding post, “Know Your Enemy” looks into the war that you and I are thrust in without having enlisted. It is a spiritual warfare ongoing.

Spiritual Warfare 1: Know Your Enemy

Do you feel like you have an enemy? Who do you think it is? Is it a family member? Neighbor? A (former) friend? One of the most important principles in a war is “know your enemy”. How do we win a war when the enemy is unknown and unlocated? Whether we know, like, believe it…
