Communicating in Enemy Territory


by Nick Bogardus

The Apostle Paul says that "we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places."

The Bible has many names for Satan and demons in the Bible: accuser, destroyer, Father of Lies, deceiver, adversary, and enemy. Peter gives a picture of what that enemy looks like; "a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour".

I recently asked a friend of mine who serves in the military about their communications. His response was as exact and direct as the distinction it made.

In friendly territory or enemy territory?

As a Christian, small group leader, friend, pastor, or even blogger, think for a minute about your communication. Do you communicate as though you're behind enemy lines?

Maybe it would be helpful to look at an example of what I'm talking about…
