Show Notes

This episode is not an attempt to discredit or demean anyone nor is it an attempt to debunk any specific so called “conspiracy theory”. Outside of scripture, I’m not here to tell you how to think or what you should believe. 

With so many conspiracy theories spreading throughout our world, my desire is to help equip you, so you can respond in a biblical and balanced manner. 

In this episode, we’ll define what a conspiracy theory is. We will also cover such topics as: what kind of people believe in conspiracies, how do conspiracy theories get started and spread, the algorithm trap, the danger of developing a conspiratorial identity and how scripture teaches us to respond. 

Thankfully, scripture does provide clear instructions as to how we should respond to conspiracy theories when we hear them.

Isaiah 8:11-12 says, For the LORD spoke thus to me with his strong hand upon me, and warned me not to walk in the way of this people, saying: “Do not call conspiracy all that this people call a conspiracy, and do not fear what they fear, nor be in dread. 

Those who follow the Lord are not to get caught up in the prevailing conspiracies of their age. God commanded Isaiah to avoid walking in the ways of people who promote conspiracy theories. 

Thanks for listening.

Let’s keep building!
