The way of victory

“Whenever the devil opposes the continued work of Calvary by carnal weaponry in the hands of evil men, the church must respond to those men as Christ did—not resisting them, but rather loving them and praying for their forgiveness. In that response, the wisdom of God is always at work to transform the attack of men to the ultimate defeat of spiritual forces. This was demonstrated not only at Calvary but also in the early church. Nonresistant under the attack of evil men, the church multiplied.”—Love and Nonresistance, page 83
