War Against Evil

Is God at war? Gregory Boyd seems to think so.  He writes:
Evil is not simply something that happens within the (otherwise pristine) cosmos; it is rather is a force that corrupts the cosmos itself!  There is something hostile to God that has affected creation to the core, and God must fight it” (Satan and the Problem of Evil; p. 48)

I want to suggest that as citizens of God’s kingdom we are to join God in this fight, which is much bigger than “soul winning”, against the evil that infects the world.  How can we start pushing back against the consequences of sin in this world?  Let’s join God in bringing restoration, healing, and redemption into the world.
