Our Attitude Toward Those Who Oppose

Israel’s warfare is with flesh and blood on the earth. Ours is with wicked spirits in the celestial realms. We should always remember that those who oppose us are merely the intermediaries used by the spiritual forces and treat them accordingly. It is not our place to wrestle with blood and flesh but to look beyond the human instrument to the real adversary in the spirit world. Material weapons are worse than useless. Our attitude toward men should be one of purest conciliation, not strife.

Concordant Commentary, (Ephesians 6:10), page 294

Forming Associations

A brother writes – “I am preaching the doctrine of restitution and God is blessing my labors; now if I should wish to form an association of those who believe as we do, what course will I pursue?”

I would answer – Don’t do it; don’t form any association. If “the love of the truth” will not hold you together, nothing will. If you possess “the unity of the spirit” (Ephesians 4:3), you do not need outward organization; if you have not that unity, organization is worse than useless, it is positively harmful, because it fosters the sectarian spirit. Do not form a sect, but cultivate the pilgrim spirit; we are not of this world; our citizenship is in heaven (Philippians 3:20).
