The Word of God teaches us to put on the whole armor of God, which is our defense against the attacks of our Enemies, who threatens our spiritual lives on a daily basis. Among our impenetrable amour is the sword, which is symbolic of the Word of God. But in order for us to take up and wield our sword in a manner that honors the severity of the battle, we must first understand the fundamentals of Scripture.
After becoming a believer at the age of thirty-eight, Robert L. Carroll became filled with the need to leave what he has learned of the Word’s truth for those around him once he’s joined the Father in Heaven. His work, Sharpen Your Sword, was written with both the new and seasoned believer in mind. As a newborn baby knows nothing of the world immediately, Carroll begins this journey of faith with readers as if they are just being born into truth of God’s Word. Carroll walks readers through the requirements of being a believer of the Word of God. He does so by establishing the validity of the Scriptures, who we are as a people and how we got here, Who God is, our relationship with Him, and many other key topics relevant to the Christian walk.
Of the many gospels being preached worldwide, only one is true, and it is revealed in the Word of God, the message of Jesus Christ as read in Scripture. New and old believers alike are being deceived by false preaching, leading many to wrongly believe that they have been saved. However, the only true path to salvation is laid out in the Word, and Carroll hopes to help all who desire it to correct their course.
