B. THE WARFARE IN OUR TEXT IS EXTERNAL... 1. In which we are engaged in battle with OTHERS a. The context of 2 Corinthians should make this clear b. For Paul is defending his apostleship and ministry against false teachers 2. This "war" is one which involves: a. "arguments" b. "knowledge" c. "thoughts" -- Such is the "field of battle" in this war 3. This is a war that is fought whenever we try to... a. Lead a brother out of error b. Convert someone to Christ 4. The "objective" in this war as described by Paul: a. To defeat any argument or position which is "against the knowledge of God" (what He has revealed) - 2Co 10:5a b. To bring a person who has held such thoughts... 1) "into the captivity to the obedience of Christ" - 2 Co 10:5b 2) I.e., to become a "servant of Christ" [Such is the "warfare" of this passage. You might not have thought of it in this way, but every time we are trying to teach someone we are engaged in a "battle" for Christ! How are we to "fight" this war?]
