The following article written by the late Bro. Carl Kitzmiller appeared in the “Locust Street Laborer” back in the early 1990’s.
You would not think it, to see some Christians, that there is much of a battle going on. There seems to be an idea abroad that when we are born again we are put in a bandbox, and labeled for Heaven, and marked, This side up, handle with care.” But the Christian experience is not a mere picnic. There is a war going on, and the world, the flesh, and the devil, and all the forces of darkness are against us when we take our stand in this world to please Him! And therefore, it is well that we should face up to this battle.
