Unfortunately, many in Christendom have been deceived into believing in the wrong Jesus. They were sold a false Gospel of prosperity. “God will take away all your troubles, give you all the monies you want and make your life cozy and as comfortable as an old shoe!” What a big-fat-lumpy-blatant lie!
It is sometimes quite sad and heart-wrenching to watch and hear horrible stories of what is happening in the Church these days. With so many fake miracles, false prophecies, dubious fund-raising methods, worldly methods to attract people to the church, power-tussle activities, terrible interpretation of Scriptures, psycho-tactical measures to keep people loyal, sugar-coated teachings with no spiritual value, and so on.
Jesus is the altogether lovely One. When He walked this earth in human form He was altogether unlike anyone who had ever lived before. He was quite different in so many ways - many that perhaps you have never thought about. For example: Did you ever notice that Jesus never withdrew a word or modified a statement in His life?

This is a follow up. However, by reading the Bible you will see how rich the Bible is in the different victorious strategies God has equipped us for. What many are calling spiritual warfare is quite elementary in the practicalities of life.
This is a conversation I had with a self-proclaimed atheist on FaceBook in December, 2010. Please bear with a lot of typos on both sides of the conversation and after reading through the chat, I also discovered that there were times when we missed questions or answers or words were jumped.

I will be giving short answers to the 40 questions from Revelation 12. The questions are meant to provoke you into studying the Bible and knowing the Truth (John 8:32).
