“…adoption is contested, both in its cosmic and missional aspects.  The Scriptures tell us there are unseen beings in the air around us who would rather we not think about what it means to be who we are in Christ.  These rulers of this age would rather we ignore both the eternal identity, our inheritance, and our mission according to what we can see and verify as ours-according to what the Bible calls “the flesh”-rather than according to the veiled rhythms of the Spirit of life.  That’s why adoption isn’t charity- it’s war.”
