1. Other Authors Sounding the Spiritual Warfare & Deliverance Alarm
Below are some websites and ministries I have listed that focus on spiritual warfare, distinguishing between true and false spiritual warfare. They may be worth visiting for more content and writing on spiritual warfare.
Their views are what we have embraced as spiritual warfare throughout history. It was only recently, in the early 1980’s, that a few of our fellow evangelicals began to claim a new understanding to scripture. I therefore support much, if not all their content on spiritual warfare.
On the other hand, I’m unable to state any full agreement with other content they have on their websites. It was largely the spiritual warfare pages that were viewed. However, they are likely to be in line with true scriptural interpretation. They are evangelicals after all, a group many of us are part of in our various denominations.

3. Spiritual Warfare, by Clifford Denton
Denton writes that, “I am concerned that there may be a movement growing which has a very unreal view of prayer and spiritual gifts but which is, nevertheless, trying to conquer Satan with human effort. Such approaches are dangerous and, I am thinking more and more, unscriptural. There seems to be a wide gulf between the intimacy of prayer from brokenness, humility and need, expressed in the articles of this journal and the headstrong ideas of some who would take the world by forceful spiritual power…”

7. The Technology of Spiritual Warfare Evangelism, by Dr Orrel Steinkamp
“Mapping the spirit world and its internal organization is not the assignment of the church. The great commission is not, “Go into all the world and bring down principalities -- but rather "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15. Our choice is very clear! We must follow the teachings of Jesus, and the practice of the Apostles as recorded in Scripture!...”
8. Territorial Warfare - Fact or Fiction? by Jeannette Haley, Gentle Shepherd Ministries
Haley covers on the teachings and background of what has been called geographical or territorial spiritual warfare.
9. Territorial Spirits and Spiritual Warfare: A Biblical Perspective, by Eric Villanueva
About Ephesians 6, Villanueva writes, “The weapons he lists for battle are: honesty, righteousness, witnessing, assurance of salvation, belief in God, and proficiency in the Scriptures. But wait, isn’t this simply obedient Christian living? Where’s the mystical mumbo jumbo - the direct encounter with the supernatural?…”
10. Misguided Focus on the Demonic: Commentary on Spiritual Mapping and Strategic-Level Spiritual Warfare, by Rev. Kent Philpott
11. My Beliefs About Spiritual Warfare, by John Paul Jackson
In this article, Pastor Jackson summarizes and defends what he wrote on spiritual warfare in his book, Needless Casualties of War. He says, “From the testimonies that our ministry receives, I am convinced that unnecessary heartache and harm is happening to many, simply because they are practicing spiritual warfare in a dangerous way…” Needless to say we do not agree with some extra-biblical teachings on the spirit realm that Pastor Jackson shares on his website. The spirit realm is indeed a controversial area.
12. Strange Spiritual Warfare, by David W. Cloud
About binding and loosing Rev. Cloud says, “The devil can be resisted (James 4:7), but he cannot be bound today (1 Thess. 2:18 -We wanted to come to you--certainly I, Paul, did, again and again--but Satan stopped us)). Far from being bound, the devil is "walking about seeking whom he may devour" (1 Pet. 5:8). He will not be bound until he is cast into the Bottomless Pit when Jesus Christ returns to earth (Revelation 20). Ephesians 6 describes the whole armor of God against the devil, and absolutely nothing is said about binding the devil or identifying territorial spirits or any of the other practices in today’s spiritual warfare movement.

Binding and Loosing Part 1, False Spiritual Warfare Teachings (calls it "Star Wars" Theology)
"I bind you, Satan!" is uttered in thousands of prayers every day in America. "Spiritual warfare" books that teach Christian how to "bind Satan" are hot sellers. Not only is Satan himself subject to continual verbal "binding," but a whole host of demons and "principalities and authorities" of the heavenly realm are also thus assaulted. Christians who practice this form of spiritual warfare hope to forestall calamities and sickness, convert loved ones, and turn cities, states and even the nation to righteousness. If binding Satan will do all this, we should put this new spiritual technology into practice.
However, if this practice is not Biblical, it may be more harmful than helpful. Those who teach and practice "binding and loosing" as verbal warfare against evil have several Biblical passages that they claim support the practice...more at: http://cicministry.org/commentary/issue1.htm
