Robert W. Gore

The American engineer and scientist Robert W. Gore died a week ago today aged 83. He applied for various patents but his best known was for Gore-tex a waterproof/breathable fabric for use in sporting and outdoor gear. I personally have been thankful for this material in my hill-walking days.

Do we have a spiritual Gore-tex to protect us from the ‘darts of the devil? Are we prepared again the attacks of this world?

Yes, the Bible tells us ‘Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground and after you have done everything to stand. Stand firm with the belt of truth buckled round your waist, with the breastplate of righteous in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace ‘ Ephesians 6:13-15
