Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 10:4


10:4 For the weapons of our warfare - Those we use in this war. Are not carnal - But spiritual, and therefore mighty to the throwing down of strong holds - Of all the difficulties which men or devils can raise in our way. Though faith and prayer belong also to the Christian armour, #Eph 6:15|, &c., yet the word of God seems to be here chiefly intended.
