Seeing people as the enemy – He wants people to see one another as the enemy and attack or reject each other.
(NIV) 12 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.
