Publisher's Summary

This audiobook offers a critique of common spiritual warfare practices including binding Satan, renouncing curses, spiritual mapping, and exorcisms. Using scripture, and scripture alone, Pastor Jim Osman shows that true spiritual warfare is not a battle over territory, but a battle for the truth.

The audiobook is divided into four sections:

  • Establishing Biblical Principles
  • Exposing Unbiblical Practices
  • Explaining Biblical Perspectives
  • Examining a Biblical Passage

A biblical approach to spiritual warfare recognizes the Bible as the sole authority, rejects unbiblical and man-made methods, and rests in Christ and his finished work for victory. Many in the modern spiritual warfare movement teach a methodology of spiritual warfare that is more akin to something you would find in a Harry Potter novel (renouncing curses and using prayer mantras to seize territory) than anything described in scripture. Many of these practices reflect a theology built on anecdotes, experience, and interviews with demons rather than a sound exegesis of scripture. Footnoted quotations of authors like Mark Bubeck, Neil T. Anderson, and others are compared against scripture to show that modern spiritual warfare "experts" have abandoned the authority of scripture and opted for man-made methods to wage spiritual battle. 

The sections include a study of the three enemies that every Christian faces: The world, the flesh, and the devil. Pastor Osman (kootenaichurch.org) answers from scripture the questions:

  • Can a Christian be demon-possessed?
  • Is Christ's authority ours?
  • What about exorcisms?

One section includes a helpful discussion of the link between spiritual warfare and a believer's sanctification.
