Conspiracy Theories

What do you think about conspiracy theories, such as those concerning the Illuminati, Freemasons, and Satanism behind world governments, and the New World Order? How can we advance the Kingdom of God when secret societies might be in control of the masses?

The conspiracy theories are irrelevant, because all non-Christians conspire against God in one way or another. It is a waste of time to investigate those pertaining to secret societies and organizations. John wrote long ago that “the whole world lies in the power of the evil one” (1 John 5:19). What difference does it make if any particular conspiracy theory is true? Some of these theories could be true, some could be false. They could all be true, or all be false. It makes no difference to the Christian approach to the world. It is the devil’s red herring. In studying them and spending energy on them, people are already ensnared and defeated. Do not allow the devil to set the agenda for the church.
