Obfuscation – the spiritual gift you can do without

Don’t be this guy:

ObfuscationObfuscation can’t be a real spiritual gift? It depends on which spirit you are talking about. As C.S. Lewis pointed out in Perelandra, “There are spirits and spirits you know.” Some spirits mislead people into rebellion.

For there are many rebellious people, full of meaningless talk and deception … . (Titus 1:10.)

But the Holy Spirit does not obfuscate and deceive, but brings clarity:

God is not a God of confusion but of peace. (1 Corinthians 14:33.)

Peace, not confusion. There is a true gift of the Spirit.
