There is no shortage of conspiracy theories-faking the Apollo moon landings, 9/11 was instigated by the United States government, even the death of Paul McCartney! Why is there such a hyper interest in conspiracies? Is it because we cannot possibly accept the world as it truly appears? Frankly, the truth of the world could be even more fantastical than what conspirators would have us believe and the hideous truth is the greatest conspiracy of evil runs amuck and rules this world.

 

Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.

2 Corinthians 4:4 (NLT)

 

Perhaps our willingness to believe in conspiracies is because we live in a world that is controlled by evil and sinister forces. In our hearts, we sense something is wrong, the world should not be like this. Poverty, crime, racism-is this truly what God desired when He created us? If God exists, how could He allow this to happen? The answer is simple. This is not the world that God created and we chose it over God’s perfect Creation by sinning and accepting Satan’s offer of a hurting and painful world.

 

We are embroiled in a heinous conspiracy of evil but there is hope and an answer. God intervened and sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem us of our sins. All who confess and repent of their sins and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior will gain salvation and eternal life. This the Truth that Satan desperately does not want the world to know. He is already defeated by God but he will continue this conspiracy of evil so long as we remain blinded to the Truth.

 

Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
