(Joshua 6)
We (too) have Jerichos in the world around us: structures of evil built into our modern society, widespread unbelief and rampant materialism, credulous superstition and a despairing cynicism. Such Jerichos must fall if people are to be liberated. The walls are high, the city proud and independent. But God is still God and His power is undiminished. He has called us to war not against people but against the things that offend God and destroy human beings who were made to know Him and to share His life.
(Peter Lewis)
