That's good, Bob. I was going to quote John 12:31, too.

Paul tells us that the battle is not physical but spiritual and the forces we fight against are not flesh and blood. Therefore the "prince of this world", must be a spiritual being.
Here again, if you have been following the "Demons" thread, this is discounted, too.
So, this thread may end up like the "Demons" thread.... going nowhere fast.
All the best,
There is no other book like the Bible in the world where you have to know the Author to understand the book. If Christianity were the religion of the Book then it would be no different than any other religion in the world. But, Christianity is Christ! It is the dynamic, personal Spirit of God functioning in man.
