The War of Ideas – Teaching them to observe
Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ are called to fight a war and that war is the Ideological War aka The War of Ideas.
War! The word brings to the mind images of physical conflict and weapons but as Jesus told us in Matthew 26:52 “Put away your sword,” Jesus told him. “Those who use the sword will die by the sword.
The Son of God taught his followers to fight words with other words, to fight ideas with better ideas and that truth is the antidote for false ideas and deception:

Joh 8:31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.
Joh 8:32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” – John 8:30-32
