While reading Seven Pillars of Wisdom by TE Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia), I was fascinated with his mastery of asymmetric warfare. He and his Arab cohorts did not attack the Turks in their theater of the WW I drama. They analyzed their own weaknesses, and they marked the Turks' strengths, and they attacked the Turks in their weakest point.
This was the supply railroad from Damascus to south Arabia. Lawrence and his Arab tribal pack of rascals blew up bridges and cut rails endlessly. The result was to force the Turks to spend all their time repairing their railroad. Thus, the Turks totally lost control of everything south of Damascus but the rail right of way.
It occurred to me that we Christians often attack head on into the most strong holds of Satan. Would we do better, at least some of the time, to attack the weakest points of Satan? Lawrence also mastered the use of propaganda by sending innocent looking Arabs into the Turkish camps with stories of Lawrence and his men that were pure fiction but designed to send the Turks off in the wrong direction.
This blog, and a series of companion articles in Blessed Quietness Journal, will be a place to discuss the tactics of you and other Christians as you pull down strongholds of Satan by stealth.
So, keep in touch. I will hopefully soon be posting tactics others have used in the battle for the Truth of Jesus Christ which resulted in victory. We will also be examining the tactics of some Christians and pastors which went very much bad, and we will try to learn why.
Our object is not to degrade one another, but we need to learn from our blunders, and we need to share our victories, as Paul told us:
1 Timothy 1:18 This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;
