confusion


i don't understand confusion (smile). the webster definition is "to make mentally unclear or uncertain; to disturb the composure of; to mix up: jumble". but where does it come from? why are things so unclear sometimes? isn't there just a right & a wrong? why is it so hard sometimes to know what is the right & what is the wrong?
wikipedia tells me that confusion "interferes with ones ability to make decisions clearly and correctly" & "although it is not an actual cure, time, a walk in the park, or meditation can alleviate the symptoms of confusion". so maybe that's my answer. i am trying to figure out if confusion is biblical or not. i have heard that it is not, but i'm not sure i have any verses to support that thesis. so if any of you have any doctrinal theories on confusion, i would love to hear them :-)
what, you may be asking am i so confused about?...well, i'll leave
that unknown for you to play with ;-)
hearing theories on that might be fun too...

here is my confused face:

I really like your confused face. It's not that I like the fact that you are confused, but it makes me laugh. If you solve this mystery of confusion you'll have to let me know because I myself am confused on occasion, but you probably already knew that. I don't usually hide it very well. :)

I have a theory about the source of your confusion. It goes like this.
Meg is confused. Meg is a girl. What is central to being a girl?
The brushing of the hair.
What's confusing about hair brushing? Well, lots of things, I suppose: the choice of brushes, perhaps which technique is appropriate, number of strokes, etc. It is a labyrinth of choices and decisions. I sympathize.
Meg, it is both wise and important that you are bringing theology to bear on this issue. 1 Corinthians 14:33 says,
"For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints."

SOOO.. we can know with certainty that the fog which has been spewn forth from these vicious hair brushes about the delicate flower of your mind is NOT of the Lord. Nor should it trouble you ANY longer.
Therefore I shall advise thee so:
1. Brush down
2. 1000 strokes/day
3. use the pink one
Good Luck!

love your confused face...I think I have seen it before, and I shall see it again-soon! Shaffer has an interesting theory, and he brings in scripture as well. I am impressed! I think your confusion about confusion is possibly hereditary? I am confused, and I am going to bed now...love,love, love

I was not confused until I read Meg's blog about confusion. Now I am confused. Maybe thinking about confusion just adds to the problem... or maybe Shaffer is right. All I know is that thinking about confusion is giving me a headache.
