INTRODUCTION
The world is human society influenced by satanic philosophies and reflecting satanic ideas. The flesh is that inner compulsion toward self-centeredness, which is a heritage of Adam's fail. The flesh is intensely personal and inescapably present. By the means of the flesh, the devil attacks us through the channels of our mind, our emotions, and our activities. These constitute our makeup as men, as human beings. We learn that the devil's aim to create imbalance, over-emphasis, eccentricity, inflating some aspect of life to outrageous proportions.
The believer's life is a battlefield. There is a constant struggle, an unceasing fight, an unending war. The believer is a soldier in conflict, hard conflict, with foes within and foes without. There is a constant struggle against the corruptible lust of the flesh and temptations offered by the world and Satan. It is a struggle against corruption that follows one to the grave.
HISTORICAL CONTEXT
It is reasonable to conclude that the church at Ephesus was the destination for this epistle regardless of the fact that the words "at Ephesus" were not mentioned in Ephesians 1:1. Most theologians agree that Paul was the author of Ephesians. Although Paul was not the first to bring the Gospel to the Ephesus, his ministry had a great influence on the people. Paul's relationship with the church at Ephesus was such that it warranted a letter written by Paul himself. Although the letter was probably circulated to churches throughout Asia, the church at Ephesus was its intended recipient.
