Destroying Lofty Opinions (2Cor 10)

For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ,

We have to live in the world and deal with the attacks and insults of those who would seek to denigrate us because of our belief in Jesus. It’s our job to take the “high road” and not fight back in the same way they attack us. They will malign our integrity or impugn our intelligence, but we should not respond with such ad hominem attacks. No, we attack their arguments. We break down their worldview, because it doesn’t include Jesus, it can’t be true. We break down their strongholds without breaking down the person. He take every thought captive and we don’t let our minds run amuck, we obey Christ. He is the way, the truth, and the life… trust in His truth.
