Paul: The things we see are temporal; the things not seen are eternal

2 Corinthians 4:18:

18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal [proskairos]; but the things which are not seen are eternal.


We wrestle against principalities, power and rulers of darkness; and our weapons are not carnal
