Conspiracy Theory

Conspire –

from Latin conspirare: to breathe together, to agree, to act or work together (nefariously, or not), to ally, to unite, to cooperate.

Conspire also means to plot, to scheme, to connive, to collude, and to make secret plans.

Conspiracy –

from Latin conspiratio: a breathing together, singing together, being in agreement, in unison.

Today, a conspiracy is considered to be the plan or agreement between parties to conduct an illegal, unethical, and/or harmful action. This understanding is based upon the premise that, if the activity/activities in question were lawful, and were not otherwise objected to, there would be no reason to plan them secretly. Of course, this is non-sensical. Are birthday parties illegal or immoral? Planning a surprise can be perfectly lawful and yet fit all the modern definitions of a conspiracy. When a conspiracy is thought to be an agreement between parties to deceive or mislead in order to gain an unfair advantage, what would you then call a football huddle? If you define conspiracy as an agreement between people whose goal is gaining political power, or achieving some political objective, have you not also defined the careers of any and all politicians, everywhere?

Conspiracy Theory –

from an internal CIA memo dating back to the late 1960s: a disparaging term to be applied to those who disagree with the official narrative, or explanation of events, with the objective being to imply those who question the status quo (let alone those who put forth alternative explanations) are paranoid, irrational, delusional, anti-{fill-in-the-blank} people. Or worse.

If, in some attempt to circumvent submission to the Living God, you are an advocate of paying obeisance to the gods of random chance and coincidence to give solace when you are at a loss to explain an event/events, you will likely give quarter to calling those who say otherwise “conspiracy theorists.”

If, rather than acknowledge that the heart of man is desperately wicked and deceitful above all things, you are more comfortable believing that “My government would never…”, while you eagerly parrot the propaganda published by those planning and committing the atrocities, you will likely refer to any who even hint at the prospect of foreknowledge (let alone who detail evidence) as “conspiracy theorists.”

If I told you that there was an established plan to impose a worldwide authority throughout the Earth, a one-world-government, would you call me a conspiracy theorist?

Were you aware that God intends to rule the Earth? If so, would that not make you a conspiracy theorist? And, if you intend to rule with Him, would that not also make you a co-conspirator?

Stop participating in the word games of the ungodly. Let me share with you some examples of real conspiracy…

Oh that my head were waters, and my eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people! Oh that I had in the desert a travelers’ lodging place, that I might leave my people and go away from them! For they are all adulterers, a company of treacherous men. They bend their tongue like a bow; falsehood and not truth has grown strong in the land; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they do not know me, declares the LORD. 

Let everyone beware of his neighbor, and put no trust in any brother, for every brother is a deceiver, and every neighbor goes about as a slanderer. Everyone deceives his neighbor, and no one speaks the truth; they have taught their tongue to speak lies; they weary themselves committing iniquity. Heaping oppression upon oppression, and deceit upon deceit, they refuse to know me, declares the LORD.

Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts: “Behold, I will refine them and test them, for what else can I do, because of my people? Their tongue is a deadly arrow; it speaks deceitfully; with his mouth each speaks peace to his neighbor, but in his heart he plans an ambush for him. Shall I not punish them for these things? declares the LORD, and shall I not avenge myself on a nation such as this? Jeremiah 9:1-9

Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the LORD and against his anointed… Psalm 2:1-2

Deliver me from evildoers and save me from those who are after my blood. See how they lie in wait for me! Fierce men conspire against me for no offense or sin of mine, LORD. I have done no wrong, yet they are ready to attack me. Arise to help me; look on my plight! Psalm 59:2-4

O God, do not remain silent; do not turn a deaf ear, do not stand aloof, O God. See how your enemies growl, how your foes rear their heads. With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. Psalm 83:1-3

And the LORD made his people very fruitful and made them stronger than their foes. He turned their hearts to hate his people, to deal craftily with his servants. Psalm 105:24-25

The faithful have been swept from the land; not one upright person remains. Everyone lies in wait to shed blood; they hunt each other with nets. Both hands are skilled in doing evil; the ruler demands gifts, the judge accepts bribes, the powerful dictate what they desire— they all conspire together. Micah 7:2-3

Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property. With his wife’s full knowledge he kept back part of the money for himself, but brought the rest and put it at the apostles’ feet… Peter asked her, “Tell me, is this the price you and Ananias got for the land?” “Yes,” she said, “that is the price.” Peter said to her, “How could you conspire to test the Spirit of the Lord? Listen! The feet of the men who buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out also.” At that moment she fell down at his feet and died. Acts 5:1-2,8-10
