Michael Flynn was raised Catholic. But in recent years his spiritual identity has shifted – or expanded. He talks often about spiritual warfare and the need for any army of God’s warriors to do battle. It is one thing to hear pastors or even worship leaders talk about spiritual warfare and “expanding spiritual territory,” but this language of warfare and prayer weapons systems and spiritual adversaries sure has a different resonance coming out of the mouth of a literal general.
How did this language and this logic of spiritual warfare enter into and become ingrained in American politics? What role did spiritual warfare paradigms play in the Capitol Riot? And what does it have to do with the New Apostolic Reformation?
