Pro-Trump supporters storm the U.S. Capitol following a rally with President Donald Trump on January 6, 2021 in Washington, DC. Trump supporters gathered in the nation's capital to protest the ratification of President-elect Joe Biden's Electoral College victory over President Trump in the 2020 election. |

In the aftermath of the US. Capitol invasion on Jan. 6, Christian artists took to social media to condemn the violence and stress the reality of spiritual warfare. 

On Wednesday, dozens of people breached security perimeters at the Capitol intending to stall Congress' certification of the Electoral College votes and pressure Republican lawmakers into overturning former Vice President Joe Biden's electoral victory. The protests resulted in four casualties and dozens of arrests.

Some people who stormed the Capitol building did so with “JESUS 2020” signs, “In God We Trust” banners and a large cross, drawing condemnation from pastors and evangelical leaders across the political spectrum. 

“There are two kingdoms at war," hip-hop artist Lecrae wrote on his Instagram page. "The empires of man and the Kingdom of God."

Here's how Christian artists responded to the events of Jan. 6.
