In Dean Sherman’s book, “Spiritual warfare”, he teaches that part of spiritual warfare is living in the opposite spirit. In a culture of greedily wanting more, for example, you fight that spirit by being a giver. In a culture of depression, living a life full of praise is part of your spiritual warfare.
I wonder if that is part of the reason why Christianity is not making major inroads into Islam? Part of the spirit of Islam is the suppression of women, placing them below men in a hierarchy. And much of traditional and current Christianity places women below men in a hierarchy. Are we living in the same spirit?
