One Response to Winsome Warriors

  1. John Musgrave says:

    The war of the Church is for souls, not to transform culture. In the war for souls–gathering the elect/adding citizens of heaven–we’ll be victorious. There is no command in Scripture to transform unbelieving culture, nor any expectation that it will be transformed (Matthew 24:37; Revelation). Christ’s command, rather, is for us to fight with the sword of His Spirit, the gospel, to gather the people for whom He’s died. It is to make disciples who are then baptized (Matthew 28:19-20), not to make unbelieving societies act like believing societies. The Bible and our theology do not support the idea that nonbelievers can or will act like believers. Again, God in Scripture does not command us to transform unregenerate societies.
