I was once hugely into manmade or conspiracy theories, until one Sunday I woke up and the ‘fight back’ didn’t matter anymore. I would spend hundreds of pounds every few months on notary publics, swearing on the bible, denying that I had to pay anything, sending accepted for value back for payment of bills, and even printing out my own promissory notes. I was fuelled by anger. I issued commercial liens to banks, the local council against council tax, the water board. I was a rebel who attended all of these freeman on the land events. One Sunday, however, the fight and frustration was gone. Instead I came back into reality and fell into a deep depression that has never gone away.
There are many manmade or conspiracy theories out there, and the social media sites have done much to fuel anger and hate amongst humans, causing divide and blame. Don’t forget that the enemy is Satan. He cares to take souls to hell, just like Jesus Christ became sin for us, who knew no sin, so that we could receive the righteousness of God through simple faith in His finished redemptive work at the cross. Souls are very important to God.
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him – 2 Corinthians 5:21
Souls are very important to God. He wants no one to perish, but all to come to a change of mind about trying to save themselves through human works and goodness, and instead trust in Christ’s finished work.
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance – 2 Peter 3:9
Manmade or conspiracy theories can ruin people’s lives. They can ruin relationships that were once solid. Instead of trying to talk sense and love into those who are being fuelled by manmade or conspiracy theories, we are told that we are enemy or the brainwashed one. It is deeply saddening to be at the receiving end of such tripe. I remember telling my sister that in 2012 the world was going to become new and I could see the sadness and the tears in her eyes, but I didn’t realise that they were tears of care and love.
What is even sadder is that many Christians, who should know better than to follow such garbage, actually encourage others through these movements on websites like 4Chan and the Q conspiracy. Two Christians got my partner into the Q conspiracy and now he won’t have a bad word said against Donald Trump. It’s such a dangerous place to be to hold a human being to such high regard. Trump is not God and he never will be. Manmade or conspiracy theories are damaging and ruin relationships. My partner is a Christian too, and believes that these movements are leading him toward God and that Donald Trump is being used by God similar to King Cyrus in the Bible. Donald Trump was taught by Norman Vincent Peele, a dangerous prosperity preacher.
I can no longer communicate with my partner. When I express my concern, he immediately goes on the defence and instead of listening, it turns into a screaming war of words. I can’t force him to listen. If he wants to believe that thousands of celebrities have abused children and are being indicted and imprisoned, I don’t see how this is helping the world. God sees all. God will have His judgement too. No one gets away with sin. That’s why we need the blood of Christ to wash away all our sin. We all need a saviour in Jesus Christ.
