    Jeremy,

    Often it is those we take pot shots at (within our own team) who are in fact not on our side but are wolves dressed like little lambs.

    It breaks my heart.

    How quick we are to forget all the warnings in Scripture to “be not deceived” and “take heed”.

    As one Christ follower who has just walked away from yet another institution of Clergy worshippers (as opposed to Christ followers) , I agree that this war is indeed a Spiritual One.

    We need to return to the word of God and get our heads out of books plural and off Youtube watching sermons and heaping up teachers.

    I write this in Love.

    Good post. It’s easy to judge people who have a different role. Fighters can look down on medics and medics on fighters. But both are necessary.

    Liz has raised the difficulty when it comes to “friendly fire.” It’d be nice if everyone wore the correct uniform, but they don’t sometimes. Makes it very, very tricky. Like being stuck in a paintball firefight and losing track of who’s on who’s team because the colours are too similar or the glasses are fogged up.

    Liz,

    There is a ditch on both sides of the road. We need to respect that not everyone will do ministry in the same way we do. However, the answer is not to say ‘whatever goes’ – particularly when it comes to doctrine.

    I totally agree that not everyone on ‘our side of the battle-lines’ are saved. We do have wolves who infiltrate. We need discernment to be able to see those who have impure motives around us.

    I can’t go into much detail at the moment, but I have a situation I am dealing with at the moment where I am standing for truth. To the outsider it may look like a bit of ‘friendly-fire’ going on. I would appreciate your prayer for both the outcome and the manner in which this is carried out.

    Jeremy
