The theme of the Bible is the real “Stars Wars” story. The great “war in heaven” described in Revelation 12 is the great ‘Mother of all Wars.’ Emphasis of this warfare motif goes by various names such as “The Great Controversy”, “The Larger View”, “Cosmic Conflict Theology”, “Christus Victor” and others. Although this thread runs through the entire Bible, these three letters of Paul, all written from prison, are a good place to explore this very important subject. Why is there so much suffering? How can a loving God allow children to starve and allow for events like 9/11? The only satisfactory explanation must involve an enemy and a cosmic conflict.
