Subject: A failed experiament:
I took it upon myself to test if there were actually people other than me that were willing to fight this present darkness and actually take a stand in society to say, "Yeah, I am a warrior of God and I will fight against anything that stands in between me and my fellowship with the Lord." I guess I was wrong. Yes, it may seem like a minute test with not that great of a formulated conclution based on the only evidence I obtained in a small amout of time... but I mean serisoulsly, what do people usually do on Myspace? They look at their profile constantly, they look at other's profiles constantly, they read the bullitents people foolishly put up, and they think of how to optimize the look of their Myspace. That's about the extent of time spent on that sight... and yet all the people that accepted my invite into the CHQ community only looked at the bullitens and topics I posted up once, if that, when they could easily be more involved due to the lack of productivity on I don't know what to do anymore.
I'll pray for all of you, and my everyone be blessed by God himself. Take care all of you.

Myspace is a relativly bad environment to pick out strong christians. And I think the idea of an experiment might be a bit brash. Live your part, and try to get others to follow in your wake by showing them how you reap personal benefit from the war you wage. Subtlety is key. Listen far more than you speak, and speak only when necissary.

Remember also that not all people, even amongst christians, are cut out to be warriors. There are many different jobs to be done within the kingdom, and using the devices of christianity and the power of God to kick the crap out of demons is only one of them. You and I have a tendency towards being unreasonably stubborn, haphazardly impulsive, and uncontrolably passionate. These are some of the prime characteristics God endowed us with so that we can do the job he set aside for us. And while they may seem potentially negative, when used by God under the right circumstance (the war) they can be invaluable assets.

remember also that a fighter can't last forever in the ring. And while your personal battles will never end, the ones you fight outside of yourself are (to some degree) optional. Choose your fights carefully and give yourself a break from time to time. If you push yourself to far, things will go badly for you. There is a subtle self-induced temptation to become so engrossed in what we're fighting that we forget what we're fighting for. Our propensity to make mistakes is already high considering our task, and forgetting our goal isn't going to help any. Make sure you spend more time with your God than you do with your demons.

Anyway, I've rambled long enough. God's right beside you, and so am I. So hang in there.
