A Conspiracy?

The Internet is a double-edged sword. It is both a source of information and disinformation, among other things. Ultimately, it provides virtually everyone the ability to pry into the world and government constructs. This is the reason governments are very wary of the Internet, because they can no longer control information through the major networks such as CNN, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and the like.  Conspiracy theories abound, but how many of those are true?

Much of what we see in today's culture, is a challenge to our worldview and how we have been "sheltered" from both foreign and domestic ideologies that seek to press their worldview or will on us. Without becoming jaded, we have to be realistic about what this world is...really. It is easy to slip into a mind set that everything is a conspiracy. I choose to believe in the Bible as being the very Word of God the Maker of Heaven and Earth, i.e., Creator of all things. What Creator God says about man and the world is that it is hopeless without Him.  Jeremiah 17:9 says, "The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?" In other words, we all have the capacity at despicable things whether they are intentional or just incidental to what we desire for ourselves.  Couple this truth with another truth in 1 John 5:19, "We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one." (emphasis mine) and we can quickly see that anything involving money and power has the capacity for misuse and abuse.  In essence, world governments, monetary institutions, and religions are prime targets for being manipulated to the peril of many.  You only have to look at history to see this proves true in every it does today.

It should be pretty evident to anyone a culture that exalts self above anything else is a culture that is heading for chaos.  Certainly, we can see the affects of this "culture of death" in our world today.  We have elected officials that vote to their advantage and our peril, without a hint remorse.  We have a non-government entity called The Federal Reserve, driving the U.S. economy into utter bankruptcy, monetizing debt, printing fiat currency, without a hint of accountability.  We have religions represented by men who, at best, are "clouds without rain" or "springs without water for whom the gloom of outer darkest is reserved" as the Bible tells us.  Or at least as bad, religions that desire to deceive and murder to conquer the masses, without a hint of mercy. 

Whether or not you believe in any conspiracy model or believe the world is suffering from what maybe the largest conspiracy every propagated on mankind, you have to sense that our current course is not sustainable.
