Confusions or tumults emerge when there is no order. But what really causes the confusions, disorder, and tumults in religion and politics?
Bro. Eli Soriano discussed this extensively in the continuation of his two-part blog article about the real cause of “all evil confusions that beset humanity.”
Bro. Eli posted the answer to this question on August 27 as part of the second of the two-part blog article titled, “Satan and his Influence: The Real Cause of Confusion.”
This followed “Confusion in the Absence of Order” article published on August 20, 2016.
It will be recalled the first part examined religious deceptions and non-belief in God of some people.
The latest part gave an incisive account of the confusions that occur between and within countries which are destroying nations from inside as a result.
According to Bro. Eli, the cause of these disorders is God’s ‘archenemy’ – “Satan,” citing Chapter 4 verse 4 of the Book of II Corinthians.
In the cited verse, satan was also being referred to as “god of this world”or “god of this age.”
Confusions are Caused by the devil
Confusions are not the work of God, according to the International Televangelist, then wrote the “God Almighty is not a God of confusion.”
Bro. Eli quoted Chapter 3 of the Book of James, which, in verse 16, says: “For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.”
Therefore, the god of this age, the devil, is the source why there are confusions in this age and also the one responsible in insinuating war among nations’ leaders.
“Battles or wars are caused by confusion, and in the actual battles and wars, there are confusions!,” wrote Bro. Eli, adding it is then impossible that there is no real cause or source to these things.
The Book of Revelations, in chapter 16, verse 14, reads: “For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”
Struggle for Power
Our times, described Bro. Eli, is “buried deep in confusion.”
He said that one of these worries that bewail many countries is “struggle for power,” citing that disorders often manifest itself when national elections are nearing such as the Philippines’ May elections.
In the U.S., signs of power struggle and confusions are already being felt ahead of its elections in November this year.
Bro. Eli tweaked the popular saying, “Two heads are better than one,” saying that it is biblical to believe “there is only one head that we must acknowledge and adhere to in the true church of the Bible.” He referred to our Lord Jesus Christ as the head.
He quoted Verse 18 of chapter 1 of the Book of Colossians: “And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.”
In conclusion, Bro. Eli said: “There is then wisdom in a hierarchy – more so when it leads up to one – a God-centered structure.” He then related that a God-centered government is the best way to go. Two or seven heads do not make a good administration, biblically speaking.
