“We are philosophers all, theologians all, warriors all” by me.

“We are philosophers all, theologians all, warriors all” by me.
We are philosophers all, theologians all, warriors all. But some are good only at being one of those and terrible at being the any of other.
Being philosophers all we must ask the questions and find the answers, slackers and idle minds won’t achieve much at all; anti-intellectuality is not a virtue.
Being theologians all it is our responsibility to find the truth about the Creator, to study all about Him, to acquaint ourselves with Him, to surrender our whole being to Him, to guard the truth He has revealed about Himself in His Holy Word; all counterfeits must be rejected, all idols must be destroyed. All that God says is true must be held to be true by us too lest we make God a liar. Study God and not a counterfeit; study not an idol made to fit natural man’s preferences, study the real God, all other gods are worthless and none of them are worth anyone’s time.
Being warriors all we are all on one side or the other in the very real war that shall not end for us until we die and won’t end for the world and indeed until Christ returns as He said; true, the war has already been won by God but we must still fight, there are still many battles for us to fight, we all have things God calls us to do, people to fight for, lost souls to pray for, so much to do, so little time, too much distraction vying for our attention; idleness the easiest road but a harmful one to be on. There is no middle ground to lie and wait for the war to end and then side with whom we will; there’s no fence to sit on, there’s no neutral place where we are free from choosing, from responsibility, from taking part in the unseen war that’s going on even now. We all have our duties, tasks, assignments, callings, missions, battles, and ignoring those things won’t get us anything good, that’s for sure.
If we want to pretend we’re not in this war, we’re just blindfolded warriors, self-deceived soldiers on the battlefield, we makes ourselves easy prey for the enemy, we basically say we don’t care about fighting for the good and right, fighting on the winning side. Such folly won’t be excused, nor will our playing ignorant of the reality of the spiritual, unseen war.
Just my thoughts shared; I hope it may benefit some who read it.
