Often we know when we're confused. On a country road stretching for miles without landmarks or signs, or in the crowded downtown section of a strange city, even if we have bundles of maps, our state of uncertainty may be obvious. Or perhaps we are facing a major decision with no clear-cut direction.
At other times confusion isn't so apparent. For example, some people may sail along, at least for a while, outside the discipline— and protection—of the moral guidance provided in the Ten Commandments and Christ Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. Except perhaps for a vague uneasiness, they may be largely unaware of any moral confusion.
A better grasp of God as immortal Soul will sharpen and refine our clarity of consciousness when confusion arises—when we need to more clearly define our way (whether around town or in life itself). Much of popular religion teaches that we have a soul within our body. Christian Science explains that we have our being within Soul. God is Soul; He is infinite, sinless consciousness, the divine source of all identity. Soul is the source of man's spiritual sense, his capacity to clearly discern, perceive, know.
