How Should Christians Respond To Conspiracy Theories

11 comments

  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.
