Togethers of Battle
We need one another in fighting many manifestations of evil.
48. Contend for the Faith Together
Take a stand with others against the deceptions of Satan. Together test questionable ideas against sound doctrine. Check lifestyles against doctrine. Argue the faith with opponents.
**Phil 1:27-29**; Phil 4:3; Jude 3
49. Arm Yourselves
Take up spiritual weapons together, making sure that many offensive instruments of war are available. And put on the armor of God together.
Matt 16:18; Rom 13:12-14; 2 Cor 6:7; 2 Cor 10:4 **Eph 6:10-18**; 1 Peter 4:1
50. Warn and Admonish One Another
Watch each other for the Evil One’s attacks, especially from the blind side. Warn others of danger, even from themselves. Admonish one another toward diligent and stubborn resistance to evil.
Acts 20:30-31; Col 1:28; **Col 3:16**; 1 Thess 5:12-14; 2 Thess 3:15; Titus 3:10-11
51. Battle Temptation Together
Using the church (two or more Christians standing together) fight off temptations before they become sins.

Go against Satan with at least one other Christian by your side; the more soldiers you have, the merrier the rout.

53. Test the Spirits Together
Together test doctrines, revelations, spirits and ideologies with other Christians. Ferret out those thoughts and emotions that come from the dark angelic world.
2 Cor 11:3-4; 1 Tim 4:1-2; **1 John 4:1-6**; Jude :17-19
54. Together Hate Evil and Defeat It
Search for and destroy wickedness. Fight at the gates of hell, not merely at the drawbridge of your own castle. Receive holy scars in battle.
Ps 97:10; Amos 5:15; **Rom 12:9**; 1 Peter 1:14; 1 Peter 2:1
55. Die for One Another
Lay your life on the line for other Christians. Risk reputation, financial security and anything necessary to help another Christian. Let go the idols of safety, comfort and pleasure.
