Eeneh keh Saint Paul dar yeki az namehash migeh:
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Yani eenkeh fekr nakon keh een doshmaneh ma masalan dolateh romeh (keh oon zaman maseeheeha ro mikoshtand) ya emperatooreh. Va masalan ageh dolateh rome az been bereh moshkelateman hal misheh, ya bereem folan keshvar hal misheh, na kheir. Doshmaneh ma spiritual hast, dar donya gahi beh shekl yeh hokoomateh, gahi beh shekleh yeh ideology ast, gahi yeh fardeh (anti-christ behesh migim), va gheireh. Vali ageh emrooz eeneh, farda cheezeh deegar ast, chon kingdom ma dar een donya neest. Dar vagheh moshkalat ma ba Utopia hal nemisheh, chon utopia dar een donya emkan nadareh.
Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world...my kingdom is from another place."
Eeneh keh maseehiha midoonand keh donbaleh panacea (masalan eediology rooz) naravand. Midoonand keh manbaeh evil dar donya dar vojood khodema ensanhast va ham az shayateene.
Va neez midooneem keh Maseeh ba margesh bar sheytoon pirooz shod va komak ma dar een spiritual warfare Jesus Christ ast. Faghat chon Jesus barayeh ma joonesh ra fada kard mara az chang sheytoon nejat dad, va ma az tareegheh oon mitooneem dar moghabel sheytoon vaysteem. Chon Jesus Maseeh is " 'the stone you builders rejected, which has become the capstone. Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."
Yek spiritual battle mohem barayeh maseeheeha alaheh "culture of death" mibasheh. Culture of death keh shameleh men jomleh abortion, euthanasia, va embrionic stem cell research. Va barayeh hameeneh keh maseeheeha kheili be ghodrateh doa (power of prayer) agheedeh daran. Va barayeh masael donya ba ghodrateh doa mijangand. Barayeh mesal yek doayeh kheili ghavi keh sai mikonam hafteii aghalan yek bar bekhoonam, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy nam darad.
Pas ma chetoori mitooneem khodaman va azeezanemoon ra mohafezat koneem? Bah eeman va ehteka beh khoda, bah doa va niayesh ziad, az tareegheh Maseeh keh raheman ra baz kard. Ba komakeh taghva va gonah nakardan (ta haddeh emkan) va ziad va fooran tobeh kardan. Bah estefadeh kardan az suffering in expiation of sins, "offering it up". Bah komak az fereshteh nejateman, khoobeh keh ba oon ziad harf bezaneem (aya midoonesti keh mitooneh esmesh ra beporsi? Baleh bahash harf bezan, esmesho bepors behet migeh). Va mitooneem az fereshtehayeh digeh ham komak bigireem, masalan Saint Michael.
Saint Michael the Archangel,
- defend us in battle.
- Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
- May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
- and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host —
- by the Divine Power of God —
- cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
- who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
