This series is focused on 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 which says which says: ‘the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty in God ,for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ‘ (NKJV)
Together, we’ll study the powerful nature of that scripture. While thoughts are important indicators of our direction in life, in some cases, mental health concerns can cause a problem with taking thoughts captive. We hope to strike a balance between what you can (and should) do through the power of Jesus Christ in you, and when it’s time to seek additional help.

Here are the broadcasts in this series:
Part One (8/13/2016):
We start a new series called “Captive” that focuses on 2 Corinthians 10:4-5, and each week we’ll unpack a small segment of that scripture. Today we are looking at ‘the weapons of our warfare.’
Part Two (8/20/2016):
Last week we talked about the weapons and focused on Ephesians 6 to support that conversation. This week we are having some heartfelt conversations about the ‘warfare’ We are praying for you, right now, if you are struggling with mental and emotional warfare. We sincerely hope this Bible study can help you with that.
Part Three (8/27/2016):
Continuing the 2 Cor 10:4-5 ‘warfare’ conversation…
Part Four (9/3/2016):
In the last few weeks we have been dealing with the first part of which talks about ‘the weapons of our warfare’ Today we continue with the second section of 2 Cor 10:4-5 ‘are not carnal but mighty in God’ Take comfort. You have the power to overcome the carnal nature of this world and your own thought life.
Part Five (9/10/2016):
Today we are focusing on the root nature of thoughts. All the actions I do, all the words I say…start as a thought. Take comfort. You have the power to manage your thought life. Let God’s Word teach you how.
Part Six (9/17/2016):
This week we are looking at ‘strongholds, arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God’ There are so many things in my life that fall under this category. What comforts me the most is that God is promising to grow me into someone who can break those strongholds, through His mighty power living in me. Let’s study together.
Part Seven (9/24/2016) :
This week continue with the segment ‘strongholds, arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.’ Arguments and High Things can come in many forms. Arguments are things that disagree with God’s provision for me. Sometimes I make arguments like ‘I know, but…’ and other times I make an argument that starts ‘what if.’ And High Things can be self driven or can come from people and circumstances around us. Any thing that causes me to forget that God is the MOST HIGH. Theres so much to talk about today! Let’s get started…
Part Eight (10/1/2016):
This week we take other bible verses and marry them to the core scripture of 2 Cor 10:4. When we look at it, the entire counsel of the Bible shows us how to control our thought life and let God be in charge.
