"But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death." Revelation 21:8
all conspiracy theories are false, and all conspiracy theorists are liars. The above verse tells about what will happen to unrepentant liars.
It's several things wrong with conspiracy theories. And if you not careful you might find yourself a partaker in the wrong.
what i mean by a conspiracy theory? "explains an event as being the result of an alleged plot by a covert group or organization or, more broadly, the idea that important political, social or economic events are the products of secret plots that are largely unknown to the general public."
“a falsified version of history or current events that redirects an audience’s anger toward another group. The theory seeks to lay blame for a legitimate issue on a perceived common enemy.”
the blame is placed, but no real solution is offered.
The theories play on people fear of the unknown and their mistrust of those in authority over them. Most people have a tendency to doubt the intentions of those above them. It's easy to imagine our bosses and higher-ups plot against us. What the Bible says about bosses and masters:
"Servants, be in subjection to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward. 19For this is acceptable, if for conscience toward God a man endureth griefs, suffering wrongfully. 1 Peter 2:18-19"
take a look here too:
"Let as many as are servants under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, that the name of God and the doctrine be not blasphemed. And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren; but let them serve them the rather, because they that partake of the benefit are believing and beloved. These things teach and exhort." Timothy 6:1-2
^and if someone disagrees with this?^ Then this: "If any man teacheth a different doctrine, and consenteth not to sound words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; he is puffed up, knowing nothing, but doting about questionings and disputes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, wranglings of men corrupted in mind and bereft of the truth, supposing that godliness is a way of gain. But godliness with contentment is great gain:Timothy 6:3-6
when it comes to government the same applies. Would you prefer Anarchy???
God says the purpose of our governments are for our own good. If you accept that police must exist to help enforce laws, then is it so hard to see that is part of the reason why governments exist?? "Be subject to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether to the king, as supreme; or unto governors, as sent by him for vengeance on evil-doers and for praise to them that do well. For so is the will of God, that by well-doing ye should put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: as free, and not using your freedom for a cloak of wickedness, but as bondservants of God. 1 Peter 2:13-16"
Of course there's a few bad apples in every bunch. We're dealing with men. But for the most part, people in governments are moral. Paul says pray for them - "I exhort therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings, be made for all men; for kings and all that are in high place; that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and gravity. This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;" I Timothy 2:1-3. Leave the rest to God that He may guide the hearts and minds of our leaders in a way that is in accordance with His will.
all the above is just the tip of the umbrella. shall we expand further?
