The reality of demonic influence

Kirk Wellum has written a brief, clear, spot-on essay about Eph. 6:12 and spiritual warfare:
When we think of demonic powers we tend to think of them corrupting us in strange and mysterious ways. But in fact, their approach is often more basic and less spooky than we expect. While we are looking for the paranormal, they work by stirring up sin. More harm is done by walking in sins that Paul tells us are incompatible with the Christian life, than anything else Satan might hurl our way. This is why the armor of the Lord that we are to wear involves things like truth, righteousness, peace, faith, salvation and the word of God.
