Don't You Just Love a Good Conspiracy Theory?

Once in a while I watch one of those "documentaries" that tell you how the Rosicrucians, the Illuminati, the shadow government, the Freemasons or the New World Order really run everything. These films confidently proclaim that these evil conspiracies would kill anyone who told the "truth" about them.

So they did a movie about the secret shadow government and told the truth about these secret societies.

And the filmmakers aren't dead!


Don't get me wrong. There is a conspiracy to control the world and yes lots of powerful people are participating in that conspiracy.
But as one of the filmmakers prefaced his movie, "It's not who you think."

Here's a hint.  Name starts with "L". And he doesn't wear red long johns and carry a pitchfork.  Jesus told us long ago who we fight against. It's principalities and powers led by the devil our adversary who walks about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.  So before you get all wrapped up in paranoia about secret societies and plots by evil corporations to murder us all for profit, realize that all this is a smoke screen for what's really going on. We are being given the Joshua challenge here in the last days of Earth. Choose this day whom you will serve.

The choice is easy - God first or yourself first. Good or evil, for make no mistake, if you put yourself above  everyone else, if you embrace the idea that it's survival of the fittest and determine in your heart to be one of the "fittest", then, you have chosen an evil path and you will make of yourself little more than a tool of anyone stronger who comes along and promises you some trinket you think you must have in exchange for your obedience.

As for me and my house, well you know what our choice is.

So should we  be afraid of conspiracies and shadow governments. Jesus said, the truth shall set you free. He boiled that truth down to two principles (Love God with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself) and ten commandments which is all the law you really need to run a world.

If you have that truth in your heart, you don't have to be afraid of anything.  Certainly not secret societies and evil capitalist or socialist cabals. Those guys are motivated by greed. They're not terribly well organized, will stab each other in the back at the drop of a hat and only work toward similar goals because of shared greed.

They should be laughed at, not feared. Scorned not glorified. What a bunch of tools!
