Christ’s Victory over Evil: Part I
Understanding the Battle
Cherry Hills Community Church, 7-9 pm in Fireside Room
The Bible tells us all we need to know about Christ’s Victory over evil and what demons can and cannot do. But often believers are ignorant of the devil’s schemes and get into trouble. We tend to reduce the power of God and exaggerate the devil’s claims—or deny supernatural influences altogether. In Part 1, we discuss the nature of spiritual warfare and its battles, and how the church has dealt with the demons through the ages. We examine modern cultural influences such as the alternative healing practices and entertainment Industry.
