One quite often hears the excuse from the aggressively minded out there, that they must put on the armour of God and basically 'attack'. These are still of the world and not of the Kingdom, as yet not being reborn into a way of thinking that does not complement the traditional ways of mankind. Rather than donning the armour to protect themselves from their old selves thus remaining unified with God and His will, they still believe they are to go out and create strife and division in the traditional ways of mankind. Jesus said we are not to be of this world but in it, but He also said to love our enemies.
Obviously many of these armoured are rebels without a focused leader, instead relying on the traditional aggressive ways of the world they have been taught since physical birth. One must ask themselves, are they proclaiming God but without His direction, or are they purposely furthering the agenda of the god of this world while pretending to serve the true God? Even if it is not intentionally the latter, the result is the same.
