What do you call a gangster without a weapon during a gang fight? Dead.
Gangsters not only need weapens, they need the boeke. Its their story. Its about Pomobasa, Kilikijan, Nongaloza and the origins of the Number. If you have the boeke then you are wise. The boeke is power. One time Paul meets some guys and they listen to him talk about Jesus. But they don’t believe him. Instead they check in the Bible to see if what Paul was saying was true. Guess what Paul says to them? He says that they are wise (Acts 17:11)! Why? Because he knows importance of the boeke. Why do Christians need “armour”? (vs 12) Because this is a battle. We have defensive armour (there are 5 listed in vs 14-17) but only one offensive armour (vs 17). The Bible. All Christians face a day of evil against the Devil and his demons or only some Christians (vs 13). So, spend some time memorizing your favourite verses now. You never know when you will need it.
