The Helmet of Salvation

Ephesians 6:17—“And receive the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which Spirit is the word of God.” Note 1 on helmet says: “Receiving the helmet of salvation is for covering our mind, our mentality, against the negative thoughts shot in by the evil one.

He is like an immense magnet...
