Is the vision of a Roman-style armor erroneous as a way to see the Armor of God?



You can practically hear the trumpets of war blaring in your mind when you read Ephesians 6:10-18, but is the vision of our promised protection built on false assumptions?

The concept itself is sound and there is nothing that can take away the words or the implications of the Letter to the Ephesians. We are powerless to battle the forces against us in the world without the full Armor of God protecting us from the powers that would destroy our souls otherwise. That is not in question.

An interesting point that Mark Biltz made in a discussion a few years ago points to the idea that what we picture as a visualization of the Armor of God might not be the case. When you cross-reference Ephesians, Revelation, and other books of the Bible, it appears that Biltz may be right. It doesn’t matter much; the metaphor itself stands regardless of how you picture the actual armor, but it’s interesting to consider what Biltz is saying.
