Invisible War for a Soul

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Ephesians 6: 10-13
By Paul Joao

The verses above is the back drop for a popular verses that deals with spiritual warfare and many teachers and pastors often use these verse however in the fields of Paranormal it can be meant for something else. In paranormal people often attempt to capture a ghost or a spirit just to claim that they can have prove an afterlife but more important they often use many methods to make themselves as trust worthily or a teacher of sorts.  Then it comes to Christianity and many people often debating on what are Christians in pursuit into the paranormal itself. From the surface why and what can Christians do is a most important factor in any thing is Christian Paranormal can preach a sermon that those who have dealt with paranormal problems can relate.  Which any one should ask how and when? In this, paper a several topics to help a person understand the statement above.

The first topic is the debate on existences of Evil, people within the Christianity often feel that it does not exist or fact that when Jesus died on the cross, Satan was beaten and Christians would not have to deal with the issue. That is what many people would say however, is it true well. If there is, Light there must be darkness and darkness needs light to be a balance in this world. In addition, the fact in Christians should live a life to please God, which is no problem but there is a world that is confused with the Jesus of their understanding. That often makes people feel like what is the truth after all, in Christian Churches people often do not speak on demons or Satan in its full context. Which recreates a problem because if people try not to speak about Spiritual warfare a person could not understand what it is a stake, for peoples knowledge of the matter?

In the paranormal field, it is a field that is base on experiments, where people demonstrate many things to prove and once they have a collection of data, they reviled it to the world.  Once the revel been release to the general audience, people with in the field or fans speak on the matter that gets people talking on the subject.  At times people in the homes feel better knowing there is a spiritual being in their dwelling or they will often ask a priest to remove the spirit at the house.  When it comes trying to speak to Christians on this aspect as they often reject the idea that this is possible, where is the blood of Jesus. Which adds to the debate on why religious people would not understand why people get themselves in involved with people who want to make a name for them.  As for the people, their lives often they want answers to the afterlife and wanting to get into the paranormal fields or follow paranormal experts. Which is not a bad thing, there is an area that Christianity that does not have a Christian paranormal Church, a place where people can come and seek the answers to the afterlife. 

Which brings this last topic a passage in the Bible in book of Matthew 28:16-20 known as the great commission, a cornerstone to the Christian faith? Over the years, Christian’s ministries that deal with the preternatural were often a subject to discuss interims of this matter. That helps people seek the answers that they are seeking in their life, however there is denomination that where people need help and a Christian Paranormal team comes and helps them. In return, ask them to come to a Christian Paranormal church of some kind, a place where people can aid many people of some kind to an area that needs to be notice within the Christian faith and outside of it.  Finally, this way people can understand the meaning of the invisible war known as Spiritual warfare, or the battle of the person soul in their lives.
