Synopsis

Don't let that dark, undefeated sin defeat you. Call it by its name, kill it, and take no prisoners! The essence of a stagnant lifestyle is walking in undefeated sin. We as believers in Christ are to destroy sin and evict the enemy from our lives and the lives of our brothers and sisters along the way. So many believers call themselves soldiers of the light, and yet they have lived far too long on the battlefield. Putting on the armor of God daily means very little if we will not strike a blow at the heart of hell.
In Undefeated Allen Griffin will reveal to you the ominous obstacle to your divine purpose--undefeated sin. Maybe it isn't your sin that has you all bound up. Maybe your mother or father lived a life that made you more susceptible to certain negative behaviors. Maybe you can't see your sin because on Facebook you're cool, at church you're godly, at work you're diligent, but at home you're impossible--and no one is holding you accountable to anything because you've done a masterful job of keeping it all "separate." It is time to walk in unity and peace with God, be a soldier of light in your world, and become UNDEFEATED.
