    What is the difference, subtle or obvious between spiritual and psychological warfare?

    Both of them war against the mind; but they differ.A neighbour who wants an individual to move plays loud music or does things 'to test the faith'. Even prayers, calling the police &going to court do not work because of the purpose.Evil triumphs over good.

    Then,what a Christian sees as a test, an unbeliever may reject outright because he/she does not want the 'test' experience .One atheist has made it clear that he/she does not want to be bothered by God and uses powerful  expletives to express this viewpoint.

    What are your thoughts on this topic and why do you feel that way?

    Psychological warfare-
    can be conducted upon anyone by anyone regardless of their religious leanings (if any). There are ways to tear someone down to suicide without ever touching them. Ways to extract information using guilt/control mind techniques. The more intel you have against your target and the skill you have at using it against them shall dictate the outcome once you've understood and realized what your objective is. What do you want to see happen as a result of what your PsyOp?
    Spiritual Warfare-
    A battle between Satan and God wherein your spirit and your faith are the trophies/objectives. Look at Job. Caught in the middle of Satan trying to disprove Job's faith and God's position that Job would remain faithful. We become involved in it when a situation arises wherein we must make a choice. The difference is, by the way, that if you have made the decision to follow one or the other no matter what, you see the other as a non-entity. People who straddle the spiritual fence are far more likely to be used as pawns in spiritual warfare as you haven't really made the decision (Whatever it may be). Read Joshua 24:15. That may help.

    Whether psychological or spiritual it all brings a source of weight on the mind as a yoke which is not light.  Unfortunately, some are born with psychological disorders in the mind in which i call irritations.  Looking at pscyhological disordes from a biblical perspective can be promising.  For i believe that the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous availeth much. It all starts in mind and is all considered warfare, some are stronger than others to overcome, on the other hand some need assistance from those who understand and are willing to help them through.  the renewing of the mind is what we need.  The enemy comes to everyone mind, being able to discern the voice is another topic.  I have seen those in mental institute get set free from psycholgoical mental illnesses.  good question.

    according to what i believe there isnt any difference.spiritual things, including spiritual warfare, have to do in general with the unseen part of man as a whole or unseen being or activity e.g your spirit,your mind,your soul,your emotions,your thoughts.what i am saying is that spiritual warfare aginst your mind is the same as psycological warfare aginst your mind.if someone said they were gonna wage war aginst your body and proceeded to hit you with thier fist then obviously this would not be spiritual warfare.it would be physical warfare.

    Spiritual warfare is on self. Psychological warfare is against a targeted victim. Spiritual warfare is for the uplift of the self. Psychological warfare is for the conquering of the targeted.Spiritual warfare is Godly. Psychological warfare is evil.

    When someone is traumatising us it's psychological and it's up to us if we allow it to become spiritual also. It's how we deal with it that will affect how our spirit is. I have a neighbour whose noise puts me in a horrible mood sometimes and the way I try and deal with it is to remind myself of his likeable points. That way it doesn't make me spiritually sick. I hope that makes sense.

    Having a reason to do good or bad can always be blamed on their god above. Doing bad or evil can be a choice a person has without feeling any regret ,purley for power,gain or recognition.Neither one is right as the reason to think and stand alone is fear and rejection in their group. People have a fear of the unknown, Evil is inflicting fear in people. It is powerful only for the day its done, but good will always triumph over evil because peace of mind and body  triumphs over all evil.

    These days, it is both a psychic and psychological jungle.  If you know that a scenario will be used on you to un-hinge your mind - just detach yourself and passively observe.  Negative thoughts or "synthetic sin" can be directly implanted into each of our minds with microwave-based technology via OUR EARS.  You can take the high-pitched syllables (ee-ee-ee!) and STRETCH THEM OUT (eeeeeeeeeeee,eeeeeeeeeeee,eeeeeeeeeee) until you hear what sounds like a Chorus of Operatic voices. This shuts out these disturbing thoughts and preserves the mind.  This is the BEST way to defend yourself.  For other methods of psychic/psychological survival, check out my other articles.
