Resisting Evil Together - Scott TjernagelAugust 11, 2012 River City Vineyard
A Roman soldier did not fight alone. He put on full battle armor and joined other soldiers in a variety of formations when facing an enemy. One formation in particular, the "testudo", seems to provide a rich metaphor for Paul in his final word for us as we "put on the full armor of God" and together resist "the fiery arrows of the evil one."
