The idolatry inherent in conspiracy theories is not a conclusion people come to by reading the news through the lens of the Bible, reason, and love. It is a belief borne of fear, anxiety, and despair. Once we embrace an idolatrous conspiracy theory, we can only see the evidence that supports it. Belief blinds us to any piece of evidence that would tear from our arms the precious belief that has provided a salve to the fear, anxiety, and despair of our age. Here is what we can do: become as faithful in our discipleship of Jesus Christ as we are able.
