Holding Every Thought Captive

Stand Your Ground. Three simple words anyone in grade school can read. But the complexity of what this means and how to actually do just that is difficult. If we look at the Bible its chalked full of men and women who stood their ground despite facing persecution. Western Christians have been marginalized and corralled into giving ground and not arguing. We feel that conflict is “not Christ-like.” This couldn’t be further from the truth.

In 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 (AMP) the Apostle Paul tells us,

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.
