There are some battles you will not win

Especially battles against a faux foe!  Knowing the real enemy is of primary importance.

You need to know who your real enemy is. You need to know your enemy's strength and weakness. And you need to know your enemy's objective.

Everything else becomes a diversion and fighting a faux foe guarantees you will lose not only the battle but the war.

Your real enemy is the Devil. His strength is your sin. His weakness is the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. His objective is keep you from finding out that God loves you, Jesus paid for your sin and that you have a living Savior.

The battle is for your soul and the war will settle your eternal estate.
