The Breastplate of Righteousness – Sermon – September 28 2008
What does this whole Armor of God thing mean in Scripture? Are Christians Violent people?
Why are we worried about Armor, and the different pieces of a soldiers armor back during Bible times, like during the Apostle Paul’s day? Why does Paul bring Armor up in the New Testament?
Who are we supposed to be fighting or prepared to fight? Where does Paul get this idea about the different pieces of Armor? Where was Apostle Paul, when he wrote down his message about the Armor of God? For this Sermon, what is a Breastplate? What is it used for? How does the Breastplate of Righteousness protect us, and from what does it protect us from?
