Young Knights and Maids are girded with the armor of truth, the breastplate of justice, and the readiness of the gospel of peace, in all things taking up the shield of faith, with which they may be able to quench all the fiery darts of the most wicked one. And taking the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit, that is, the word of God, they fear nothing but sin.
"Put on the whole armour of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
"Therefore take up the whole armour of God, so that you may be able to withstand on that evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand therefore, and fasten the belt of truth around your waist, and put on the breastplate of righteousness. As shoes for your feet put on whatever will make you ready to proclaim the gospel of peace. With all of these, take the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication."(Ephesians 6: 11-18)
Put on the whole armor of God . . .
