Our battle is not with the people who do evil deeds; our battle is with the evil that drives the evil deeds. So, if you ever hear the question, "Why?" you can answer with the truth of the gospel of the Lord. The spiritual battle is real, and it's here. Don't ignore it, and don't brush it aside. Fight it with the armor of God!
