In mostly any discussion in between Christians about the Crusades, somebody usually objects that the Crusades were unbiblical because of Ephesians 6:12:
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places
Well I have done a video dealing with this very issue, showing that Ephesians 6:12 does not in any refute the concept of Christian holy war, but in fact, supports it:
It must be remembered that all of the Church’s battles are spiritual, even if they do involve physical fighting. And the purposes of these wars are not to kill, but to advance God over evil.

#ACSN2014 – Oh those Golden Days of Wine and Roses 🙂
Sweet red wine
A Poem by Coyote Poetry
Youth is the best days in a life. Days are long. Love is possible.
It was early fall. The sweet new wines of Germany came out.
They are cheap and tasty.
It was a beautiful late summer day.
The youth of the city of Boeblingen surrounded the lake drinking the wine and listening to music.
I was with my Scottish beauty.
She was so beautiful.
She held me so tightly.
We found a peace in a sweet love only
two innocent in heart can understand.
We drank the sweet red wine.
I asked her to marry me.
We sealed our two lives together,
with sweet and tender kisses.
Her sweet lips tasted of sweet red wine.
We traveled to Scotland together.
Made promises of forever to the Ivory Cliffs of Dover.
I could kiss and love my lady…
