Have you noticed how mainstream Christianity has stepped away from any form of militancy? When is the last time you sang Onward Christian Soldiers or Fight the Good Fight With All Your Might?
Those hymns have been quietly removed from the hymnbooks by the woke editors. Maybe they are worried folks might become Christian jihadists and resort to terrorism. I doubt it. Christianity’s problem today is not too much fighting spirit, but not enough.
But at the same time–this lack of proper militancy means books and courses on Spiritual Warfare are burgeoning. The pendulum always swings back.
