Hebrews 13:13

My initial reaction to this was to shake my head in disbelief. It is this "brand" of Christian activism that promotes and spreads the stereotypes of what an Evangelical is. But sadly there are those within the evangelical camp that have fallen prey to this militant aberration of the Christian faith. Paul specifically warns us that while we are indeed engaged in a war - that our weapons are not those of this world.

"For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ."
(2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
