Confusion Confusion is the human nature. No matter what we do, it cannot be overcome. Too many people have different views of things, different opinions about them. If we argued about them, we would be arguing for eternity. Nothing is more useless than that. Why donât we just let people have their own opinions without trying to force them into ours? Sometimes we donât even force, we just kind of prod, like poking a bug with a stick to make it move. But the truth is, if theyâre found somewhere, they believe in something, what are we doing taking it away from them. Itâs their own ideas and beliefs and fault that theyâre on the wrong path, if they are indeed. And if we try helping them, whatâs the point? Many a time have I seen people be converted into a new religion, and all youâre doing to them when you do that is confuse them even more. We are all already confused, so why add more to someone elseâs life to make you feel like you made a difference? They become completely lost and start at the beginning again once you put doubt into their minds about who they are. If you confuse them like that, their journey, already taken, to find out who they are and why theyâre here has just gone to waste. They have to start again and wander the road like a baby, but this time, without anyone to take care of them. There is no follow-up that can take away that helpless feeling they feel when theyâre on their way to growing up again. You canât be their parent and devote all of your time to them and their well being as a new Christian, unless that is all you do in all your life. Itâs like taking care of a growing child; you could never do it more than once in your life. So, the gist of it all is, youâre making their life more confusing, to add to the confusion already there, youâre making your own life harder, and you can only do it once. Plus, whoâs to say that once theyâre âgrown up,â they wonât just get ârecruitedâ by another of a different belief system. Their faith will have to be strong on their own, itâs not something you can teach, and you have already made it weaker from the beginning. Once you fool them into believing what you believe, then you take a bit of their faith with you, and a bit of their strength. From the beginning, you are taking them out of the safe womb of only believing one thing all their lives and showing them there are big, bad things out there, and different things than they are accustomed to. So once you have shown them that from the beginning of the process, they will know it forever. When you finally let them go, like a child graduating, they will know there are other things out there that could be possible. You have shaken them. The only way they will stay in the belief system you have set them into is if they are strong enough on their own to believe what you have essentially taught them. Itâs all very confusing to you, what Iâm saying now, but isnât everything in life that way. As I have said, itâs the human nature. When someone tries to make sense of it all and tells it to someone else, itâs only confusing them more, because they donât understand. We can only count on ourselves to be true. We can count on our own definition of life, and how it works, and nothing else. Donât let anyone shake you; take you out of your womb. Itâs where you belong, where you will strive most, its no adventure out here, on the outside. It may seem like it because you havenât experienced it yet, but some things are better left inexperienced. Tweet
