Satan and his Influence: The Real Cause of Confusion
While God Almighty is not a God of confusion, there is a god called the "god of this world" or "the god of this age" who is the cause of all evil confusions that besets humanity. This god is satan, God's archenemy.
(Note that the word translated "world" in 2 Corinthians 4:4 is the word aiōn" in the original Greek language of the Scriptures.)
Confusions in this age are caused by satan, the devil!
He insinuates war among leaders of nations.
Battles or wars are caused by confusion and in the actual battles and wars, there are confusions!
Where there is strife, there is confusion.
Apparently, the world now in this age is buried deep in confusion. Before an election, there is strife - a contest of mud-slinging, defamation, self-glorification, and lies. After election, there are protests about its results, turncoatism, opportunism, and influence-peddling. All these may result in loss of lives, money, honor and love between friends! These things have happened in the Philippines before and after the May Elections, and are now happening in the United States of America.
What is worse is struggle for power and pre-eminence.
The Bible describes a beast with seven heads. Seven that have to have their say.
The saying, "two heads are better than one," is neither biblical nor wise! The true church in the Bible has for its head, the Lord Jesus Christ.
A church with seven heads will be struggling with confusions. There is only one head that we must acknowledge and adhere to in the true church of the Bible.
There is "one head" that is better than two or seven - that have to have their say.
Similarly, a government with three heads will be struggling with confusion! How scary can it be to see even a statue or a picture of a body with three heads trying to devour each other! There is then wisdom in a hierarchy – more so when it leads up to one - a God-centered structure.
A piece of (unsolicited) advice: Someone who knows his or her rightful place in the human society is a man. Anyone striving to be what he or she must not be is not a man!
