  • Spiritual Warfare

    By Jonathan Carl

    Guest Columnist

    Satan is real. Demons are real. There is a real battle, a conflict that is largely unseen. Satan and his demons are at war with the followers of Christ and are constantly seeking avenues to attack God’s children, sometimes directly, but oftentimes through the world and our fleshly desires. We cannot ignore the reality of the unseen world and unseen beings.

    “The real war is inward of which the outer action is but the echo and reverberation.” Harry Emerson Fosdick
