What does it mean to "Put On The Whole Armor of God"?

• arclein

Many people correlate the full armor of God with Roman armor, and this is not the case. The concept of the full armor of God does not originate from Paul seeing Roman soldiers, but he refers to the ancient Hebrew armor as described in the book of Isaiah. The four fixed items that are fixed (belt, breastplate, shoes, helmet) come from the book of Isaiah, and two that are mobile (shield, sword) came from King Solomon's writings.
