Dazed and Confused
The certainty we all seek in life is fleeting. As time goes by, the things we thought were sure are not. The truths we held to in the past are being rocked by a new truth. This new truth is challenging the very foundation of life as we know it.
Men are no longer men. Women are no longer women. Children are being driven to choose their gender. We are being told masculinity is toxic and femininity is powerful. One race has privilege while others are oppressed. Animals are protected because they have a right to life while a baby in the womb does not. Our history is being revised, while our books are being censored. Even our thoughts are being deemed unacceptable unless we think a certain way.
I am “dazed and confused” by the very notion of the things I have just written.
For me, certainty has given way to an uncertainty I have never experienced. The very fabric of everything I have known to be true is being torn asunder and replaced with a fabric I do not recognize.
We are being told this new paradigm is the best way forward. In fact, unless we accept this new normal, we are backwards and hateful.
Why? When did it become a requirement to believe everything we are being told? When did being an individual become discouraged and disallowed.
I am not sure of the answer, but I am sure the willingness to accept these things without question will be our undoing. You see being “dazed and confused” makes us vulnerable to those who would presume to control us.
This is nothing new. In fact, it happened in the Garden of Eden when the serpent invited Eve to question what God had told Adam regarding eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Her willingness to accept this invitation was prompted by her desire to be enlightened.
Enlightenment is the guise being used to push this new agenda forward.
The question we must ask is what prompts us to give into all the things we are being told we must accept and believe?
Perhaps if we take a moment to really open our eyes, we will see it is our desire to be more like God that leads us to being “dazed and confused” which opens the door for a life we were never meant to live.
The choices we make from here are ours. The consequences of those choices will be the mark we carry with us as we go forward.
My question is, if the cost of being “dazed and confused” in the Garden brought death and separation from God, what will the cost be for us? I don’t have the answer, but I know it is not going to be good.
Genesis 2: 16-17, And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”
