Does a Warrior of Christ really do battle against the enemy?

How does a warrior of Christ truly know who he is fighting? Is Science the great evil here, or is it truly something different in a spiritual sense?

Warrior ofChrist is an interesting term, I wonder where you picked it up and what you think it means. Pure science is not evil, and in fact, can not be either good or evil. How that science is applied can be good or evil, but the science itself is neutral. However, there is a lot that parades under the name of science that is NOT pure science, but a cleverly disguised religious system. This system is evil insofar as it is deceptive and discourages individuals from seeking the Truth. The "Warrior of Christ" is fighting for one cause only, and that is to overcome evil with good, and to overcome deception with truth (ok, you could say that those are two causes, but they are basically one in the same).

ok, basically, a warrior for Christ, is defending the word of Christ, at least that is what I learned in Sunday school. you take up your armor, and prepare yourself for the day! The reason why I add science, is because, why are Christians defending the bible as if science is attacking it? I guess I didn't know how else to word it. I am trying to be very generalistic here, very basic, because I am building a foundation of sorts. a perfect example, would be my brother. He is Mormon, and believes that the world is only 7,000years old, and even though the pyramids are 10,000 plus, he refuses to believe that. I mean, I don't get it. and then, the dinosaur bones. I can not tell you how many people have told me that those were planted here by Satan! (rolling eyes) I think Science would beg to differ. So, arming yourself with the word, and fighting this stuff? I think that is the biggest question! what else would you be fighting?

The Bible does not clearly teach the world is 7000 years old. Dinosaur bones were probably not planted by Satan. The pyramids are not ten thousand years old, at least not according to science. And therein lies the difficulty. You want to stand with a scientific worldview, but that same scientific worldview embraces the version of history that we were taught in schools. There is evidence that the sphinx may be nearly 10,000 years old, but mainstream science rejects that evidence and analysis. The thing is, we are not allowed to rationally question the science, because We's all ignant hillbillies, seein' as we's don'ts believe in no EVIL-lution. Do you realize that less than 100 years ago science declared firmly that the universe was eternal, without beginning and without end. This led to a concept of nature known as the steady state theory. Basically, it said that the natural processess were grounded in an eternal, steady state (read unchanging) universe. Christians and other religionists were laughed to scorn because they maintained belief in a Universe that had a definate point of origin, that everything came from somewhere. Guess what? The Big Bang theory eventually overturned the steady state theory, and this was hailed as a monumental victory by scientific christians, a validation of the Genesis account of creation. The fact is that our world is cyclical, and these cycles can last thousands or even millions of years. And we have records from roughly 300 years of scientific observation. That means that what we know is only truly applicable to cycles and systems less than 300 years in duration AT MOST. Evolution doesn't occur that quickly. Neither does global warming. Or the Big Bang, or the decompostion of carbon 14 (which we actually have less than 70 years of observation.) What we know about what happened in the past is only what we assume was the same as the present. And what we know about the present is next to nothing. Real science is no threat to religion, but religion posing as science, be it christian, muslim, or "modern scientific knowledge" is a threat to all who earnestly seek the truth.

Not only are the pyramids 10,500 years old, as accurately presented by Edgar Cayce,and later affirmed by scientists but also the lion's head with body is said to have existed first, at 40,000 years old. thus, the bible does not accurately date the first existence of man.

I wonder where did you get the term "Warrior of Christ" from. Many people nowadays link Christ with retribution, something which is totally wrong in my opinion. Jesus never talked about violence, and never justified violence in any case, not even to defend what you believe. He let the romans crucify him and he obviously could have stopped them, but he did not. Believers should pay more attention to the real intentions of jesus, which never were related to the use of violence of any kind in any case.

If you were a Christian, then you would be familiar with arming yourself with righteousness, and the word. It is a Pentecostal thing I suppose. So, I guess all Christians are not aware of it.

NO sadly all Christians are not aware of it. Most protestant Christians do know abou it. I know the Catholic church never taught anything about putting on the armor of God.

Religion is about faith and what you believe. Science is about facts and truths in life. if there is evil in the two, it's the person who use these things for evil purposes

yeah, well, science has been ignored when there has been blatant facts, the first thing that comes to my mind, was how long it took Christians to realize the earth was round not flat. The fact that most christians don't care how old the planet is, also comes to mind. I remember my geologist teacher saying that the earth could possibly be 4 billion years old. However, in the bible, through teachings states that the planet is only 7,000 years old. newest one being stem cell research...that is another ball of wax here.

A warrior of Christ teaches to fight the evil within us and follow the path of righteousness... Science is not the evil, if it is used for the well being and progress of every living being on earth...

The true evil here is the devil himself who has done everything he could so as to make the antichrist the one embraced by the people rather than God. In no way could people be misled by science. Science can in no way be compared with God. The antichrist is different, very much different from science. It shall assume the perspective by which people perceive God the Father and Jesus Christ. He is doing this to bring, if possible, all the peoples of the world to his fold. He performs miracles and teaches religion. Their mark is described in the Bible as the dogs who never gets full no matter how much he eats. He continuously hungers for more souls to victimize and more money to fill his pockets. He never is content with what he's got. He sees that there is so much more in the world that he doesn't own yet. The true warrior of Christ then fights this evil. His only arm in the fight is the Word of God. The Word of God springs forth from only one source, The Bible. So God's warrior will not use any other tool to bring God's people to God's fold - it will only be the Bible and nothing more.
