Tim speaks from Romans 12:1-2. The process of spiritual transformation has an enemy and a lot of us do not embrace this or live that way. If you believe in Jesus Christ for salvation then you are hated.
"There is no neutral ground in the universe; every square inch, every split second, is claimed by God and counterclaimed by Satan." C.S. Lewis
We have a very real enemy, but the enemy wants us to live like we don't have an enemy. We have to learn to manage ourselves and take every thought captive. We have got to learn to hear the voice of our Shepherd and follow him. Confusion is not from God. Peace is from God.
