God’s weapons to pull down strongholds in people’s minds are: Jesus’ name, his blood and his Word. 

“These weapons can break down every proud argument against God and every wall that can be built to keep men from finding him. With these weapons I can capture rebels and bring them back to God, and change them into men whose heart’s desire is obedience to Christ.”
