Fair Fight or Not, Still Gonna Fight

The Apostle Paul, under the influence of God’s Spirit wrote,

The world is unprincipled. It’s dog-eat-dog out there! 

The world doesn’t fight fair. 

But we don’t live or fight our battles that way—never have and never will.

 The tools of our trade aren’t for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demolishing that entire massively corrupt culture. 

We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ.

 Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity.
2 Corinthians 10:3‭-‬6 MSG

The world doesn’t fight fair. 

But we don’t live or fight our battles that way. We’ll fight but not the way the world fights.

 While women weep, as they do now,

I’ll fight

While little children go hungry, as they do now,

 I’ll fight

While men go to prison, in and out, in and out, as they do now, 

I’ll fight

While there is a drunkard left, While there is a poor lost girl upon the streets, While there remains one dark soul without the light of God, I’ll fight-I’ll fight to the very end! 

-William Booth

Fight Back (by D&K band): 

EXTRA- 

On May 9, 1912, going on 107 years ago, The Salvation Army’s founder, General William Booth gave his final, most distinguished address to a packed crowd of 7,000 Salvationists at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Booth’s final words sum up the heart of The Salvation Army’s mission and vision and his own 60-year ministry:

“While women weep, as they do now, I’ll fight; while children go hungry, as they do now I’ll fight; while men go to prison, in and out, in and out, as they do now, I’ll fight; while there is a poor lost girl upon the streets, while there remains one dark soul without the light of God, I’ll fight, I’ll fight to the very end!”
