    Ephesians 6:12 says, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

In my group one of the members was quickly persuaded by Wright i.e. “The gospel is news not advise.” As christians I think we aren't to be easily persuaded.
