But I’ve always wondered what this means exactly and how does this relate to our everyday lives? Therefore, in my previous Bible study, I brought up the question, “Is Satan the author of confusion?”
According to the Bible, as implied in 1 Corinthians 14:33, and theological studies, Satan is the author of Confusion. The concept of Satan as a deceiver and tempter who confuses is a recurring theme throughout the Bible and is reinforced in Christian theology. Additionally, according to the Bible, Satan is often described as the ruler of this world and is believed to use his power to sow Confusion and chaos to lead people away from God.

If God is not the author of Confusion, why did he use the spirit of Confusion in Deuteronomy 28:20-68?
It’s important to note that God didn’t cause Confusion but rather allowed it as a consequence of the Israelites’ disobedience. The curse of Confusion was a natural result of the Israelites turning away from God and following their desires. Understanding the context of the passage in Deuteronomy 28:20-68 is crucial. The Israelites had made a covenant with God, promising to obey His commandments and follow Him, and in return, God promised to bless them and protect them from their enemies. However, the Israelites repeatedly disobeyed God and turned to other gods, breaking their covenant with Him, therefore, as a result, God allowed them to experience the consequences of their disobedience, which included Confusion, as outlined in Deuteronomy 28. As suggested in Isaiah 45:7, God is in control of everything, including both good and bad situations. However, this doesn’t mean that God is the author of evil or Confusion. Rather, He allows evil and Confusion to exist as a consequence of sin and disobedience.
What does it mean that Satan is the author of Confusion?
The phrase “Satan is the author of confusion” means that he’s responsible for creating or initiating Confusion and disorder in the world, as suggested in 1 Corinthians 14:33. This verse implies that disorder, chaos, and Confusion don’t come from God, but rather from opposing forces. Additionally, James 3:16 implies the same suggesting that Confusion and disorder are linked to negative, sinful behaviors orchestrated by Satan. Furthermore, the Bible portrays Satan as a deceiver and tempter who seeks to lead people astray from God, as suggested in John 8:44 and John 12:31. Also, Christian theologians suggest that Satan is actively working to oppose God and His followers and uses tactics such as deception, Confusion, and temptations to achieve his goals.
Where in the Bible does it say Satan is the author of Confusion?
Besides the Bible verses mentioned earlier, other scriptures that imply that Satan is the author of Confusion include 2 Corinthians 11:14.This verse suggests that Satan is a deceiver who masquerades as something he is not, creating Confusion, which can lead people to make decisions based on false information, resulting in Confusion and disorder. Additionally, Ephesians 6:12 implies the same suggesting that there’s a spiritual battle occurring between the forces of good and evil, and the “spiritual forces of evil” led by Satan seek to oppose God and lead people away from Him. This opposition can manifest in Confusion and disorder in the world.
Why is Satan considered the author of Confusion?
Satan is considered the author of Confusion because, according to the Bible, he’s the source of deception and lies in the world. 2 Corinthians 11:3, where Paul warns the Corinthians about false teachers who are leading them astray, also implies this. This verse highlights the fact that Satan can use his cunning and deceit to lead people away from God, and this deception can cause Confusion, both in our understanding of God and in our lives. 2 Corinthians 4:4 also suggests that Satan is the author of Confusion.
How do you fight against Confusion from Satan?
One way of fighting against Confusion from Satan is to seek God’s wisdom, as implied in James 1:5. Resisting the devil, as suggested in James 4:7, is also another way. When we’re facing Confusion from Satan, we can actively resist his attacks by standing firm in our faith, using Scripture to combat his lies, and refusing to give in to temptation. Additionally, staying grounded in God’s truth is a powerful way of fighting Satan’s Confusion. Lastly, praying for clarity and God’s guidance can is crucial when dealing with Confusion.
