2 Corinthians 10:3-6 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
The Apostle Paul and his ministry were under constant attack by those who disagreed with the gospel’s message. He shows us that physical violence is not necessary. His obedience and reliance on Christ were sufficient to fuel his aggressive defense of the gospel. Paul fought to save people, not to destroy them.
