Why All the Confusion?

“How is it possible that Trump had the most minority votes of ANY Republican since 1960, but Joe Biden received 8,000,000 more votes than Obama 2008?

“How is it possible that Trump picked up almost 250,000 Democrat cross over voters in Florida alone?

“How is it possible that Biden/Dem turnout was DOWN in every urban area except for four (Atlanta, Milwaukee, Detroit, Philadelphia)?

“How is it possible that all the swing states knew to stop counting at almost the exact same time on election night?”So begins a recent Unconstrained Analytics article, “2020 Questions”. It continues with many similar questions/facts and ends with a simple one word answer—“FRAUD!”

I would add to these questions: How is it that common sense, in light of the above facts, doesn’t move a good many Leftists to question our alleged election results? How is it that despite the overwhelming accumulation of evidence of election and voter fraud being uncovered by people like Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani, Kevin Freeman, along with a host of affidavits, there are still masses who blindly follow the media’s “nothing to see here” narrative or accept the Left’s claim that these are just the last futile, flailing attempts of a sitting president refusing to accept defeat, as they continue to harden the hearts and minds of this nation with their lies? Why, after four years of the Democrat Party’s lying, cheating, and violence aimed at removing a duly elected president of the United States, shouldn’t people demand truth and fairness before moving forward in unity?

It’s been said that “Truth has been slain to provide a feast for unity.” Instead, we must demand to be united around Truth and feast at the banquet that Liberty provides; for, to be united in deception, leads only to destruction. What causes such blindness and lack of objectivity? What makes people so willing to just accept what they’ve been told instead of searching for the Truth? Why do so many swallow the media’s propaganda, Facebook’s false “fact checkers,” and the Left’s so-called science?

Pride could be one answer; Mark Twain said, “It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” Adolf Hitler offers human nature’s lack of moral/intestinal fortitude at clinging to that which is true for a reason; as he claimed, “If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.” Alexander Solzhenitsyn, however, posits a shifting degradation of politics within a society, “In our country, the lie has become not just a moral category but a pillar of the State.” Such a pillar eventually crumbles under the weight of Truth, but not until many are crushed under the weight of the State’s deception.

The Apostle Paul’s answer is found in Romans chapter 1. We “hold the truth in unrighteousness,” and have “changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator.” In other words, sin; it’s sin that blinds the eyes, ears, and mind to truth, making us reprobate. It’s neglecting to hold to the most basic of truths—“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth”—that leads to further sin, further rejecting truth, and eventually, the inability to distinguish truth from falsehood and the difference between the holy and the profane.

In the Old Testament it’s given a different name. Jeremiah, Ezra, and Daniel speak of their nation having a “confusion of face(s);” that’s where we are today. We have known the truth and the righteous commands of Jehovah, but are unsure of which God/god to follow. Our sin brings this confusion, this inability to wholly believe and commit to the Truth.

Like the children of Israel, America has allowed sin to infect its heart and mind, believing the lie for so long that we are near unable to hold the truth in righteousness. Daniel 9:7-8 “O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; … because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee.  O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.”

Such confusion of face doesn’t initiate the fall of a nation; it describes the fallen state of that nation. It’s a nation that no longer teaches its children the difference between the holy and the profane; nor does it live as though there is a difference. It’s a nation that calls good evil and evil good, perpetuating the “confusion of face” that Daniel confesses to.

Now that we know the problem, what’s the answer?

Alexander Solzhenitsyn says that “The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world.” That’s a good start but it isn’t the solution.

God’s Word brings clarity to confusion. The solution is to get right with God; confess our sin, repent, and throw ourselves on His everlasting to everlasting mercy.We can’t do that for the whole nation; but, after we are right with Him individually, we can pray rightly for our nation as Daniel did in chapter 9 of the book that bears his name. It is a prayer of national and personal repentance and I urge you to sit down and prayerfully read it over this Thanksgiving season. It “is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” When applied personally, we have all the more to be thankful for.


We are grateful to God that He has moved on the hearts and minds of our friends, showing us a little of what is inside them. Your notes of encouragement, prayers, and financial support mean so much to us; without them, we wouldn’t be able to do the important work that God has laid upon us. 

Won’t you prayerfully seek the Lord’s will to come alongside us again, supporting us in whatever manner you feel led? Thank you.
