How Should Christians Respond To Conspiracy Theories

    • Hi Linda Lee, if you are saying that I agree with the author of this post, you would be right. There is so much damage being done in the Church, by the Church, right now, with regard to its credibility and this is but one aspect that so easily could be avoided. Blessings Linda Lee.

  1. Bruce, thanks for bringing this post to our attention. It’s regrettable that some evangelicals are so eager to buy into these groundless conspiracy theories. When I accepted Christ back in 1983, there was a publisher, Jack Chick, whose materials were quite popular in fundamentalist and conservative evangelical churches. Chick blamed every calamity in the world on a Jesuit worldwide conspiracy, including the founding of Communism, Nazism, and the Ku Klux Klan; starting the World Wars; masterminding the 1917 Russian Revolution, the Great Depression, and the assassination of John Kennedy; and creating the Mormon church as well as the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Credulous Christians soaked it up. The Jesuits had certainly been involved in some anti-Protestant skulduggery, but Chick’s accusations were totally groundless. Chick’s absurd conspiracy theories reflected poorly upon evangelicals and damaged credible Gospel outreach to Roman Catholics. I cringe when I see evangelicals being neutralized and losing their witness by becoming enmeshed in these political conspiracy theories.

  2. Thanks! It’s nice to see others who agree on this topic. I actually wrote this article and ran across your reblogging of it and was so happy to see that you agreed. I’m really sad about how many Christians are spreading these theories.

    • Hi Joy, what a pleasant surprise! There are a few others that I have run into that agree with us, but right now we do seem to be in the minority. But, not to worry, Jesus is in control and I am sure it will unfold according to His will. That was an excellent article and I thank you for taking the time to put it together. God’s blessings to you and yours Joy!
