In a spiritual world of quick fixes and vague emotion, is it crazy to believe there is still a place for insights based on simple, basic, theological understanding. I believe it is worth exploring.

We must understand that we need the armor of God because we have enemies (Ephesians 6:11,12; 1 Peter 5:8,9; 2 Corinthians 11:3). Note, these are not human enemies, but wicked spiritual powers. This is important to remember, because we need to know we are in a battle. We cannot be complacent and feel things will just naturally go our way; we have someone working against us. We should not feel we can neglect God's armor; if we do, we leave ourselves vulnerable to attack. We must realize that if we are trusting in ourselves rather than Christ, someone is waiting to trip us up. We should not think that all that matters is what makes sense from a purely material perspective. There is a whole other dimension to our life. And we ignore it at our peril.
