“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”- Ephesians 6:12
Conservatism and Liberalism are merely worldly, political ideologies. Neither are born of faith. Neither are intended to bring anyone to faith. Thus, both are subject to spiritual wickedness and both are used by the god of this world.
I am not focused, therefore, on fighting “liberalism”. I am focused on fighting against spiritual wickedness.
That cannot be done via political activism. It is done through spiritual warfare and with spiritual weapons.
Ephesians 6:13-17 goes on to highlight what our weapons are:
“Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
Satan and his angels have no fear of the Tea Party or Republican Party. Neither Republicans, Conservatives, Libertarians or Democrats provoke fear from the rulers of darkness.
Only the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the Word of God can cause the rulers of darkness to tremble and flee from us.
That is why the Word of God says “the just shall live by faith”.
That is our salvation. Faith is our only hope. Not our political ideologies.
