Confusion, being puzzled, even sometimes discouraged and distracted, does not necessarily signify resistance to the leadings of the indwelling Adjuster. Ignorance alone can never prevent survival; neither can confusional doubts nor fearful uncertainty.  Confusion goes before growth as well as before destruction.  Many a new religion and strange “ism” has arisen from the aborted, imperfect, misunderstood, and garbled communications of the Thought Adjusters.  Jesus permitted confusion to pass most intense point to show that holding opinions too earnestly interfere our ability to fully grasp the great truth. 
John the Baptist still had confused ideas about the coming kingdom and its king. The longer he preached the more confused he became. Sometimes he questioned everything, but not for long.  Present-day mortals would experience less of this apparent warfare between the flesh and the spirit if they would enter the spirit kingdom. 
Much, very much, of the difficulty which Urantia mortals have in understanding God is due to the far-reaching consequences of the Lucifer rebellion and the Caligastia betrayal. On worlds not segregated by sin they suffer less from confusion.  Much that seems disjointed and haphazard to the mortal mind appears orderly and constructive to my understanding.  In Paradise the directors of conduct always teach to avoid confusion. Confusion never appears in Paradise.  Religious perplexities are inevitable; there can be no growth without psychic conflict and spiritual agitation.
