The Shoes of a Christian Soldier – Sermon – October 05 2008
What does this whole Armor of God thing mean in Scripture that the Apostle Paul talks about?
Are Christians Violent people? Why this discussion about Armor and Weaponry?
Why are we worried about different pieces of a soldier’s armor back during early New Testament Biblical 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 are the Shoes of a Christian Shoulder? Is this a Metaphor? What are they used for? How can the Shoes of a Christian Soldier protect us?
