Virtually every Christian, whether (s)he realizes it or not, is in a spiritual battle; too often the church has left it up to the ministers and foreign missionaries to do battle with the unseen forces of evil. Yet, the church as a whole is enlisted in God's army as soldiers to do battle with these forces. While it is prudent when confronted with the demon possessed, to leave it up to those that are mature and anointed to handle the possessed; that does not exclude the "rank and file" Christians from being involved in this spiritual battle on a personal level. This conflict with the unseen forces of evil and the church is known as Spiritual Warfare .Spiritual Warfare is the battle for the mind of the Christian. The Christians however, are responsible to renew their minds by the Word of God, thus, focusing on God. From the introduction.
