Regarding Conspiracy Theories

FEMA Camps, Freemasons, Illuminati, Bohemian Grove, False Flag, and all their vile cousins are terms that haunt us (me). They sometimes make sleep hard to find. Some people whistle thru the graveyard; I prefer to renew my courage with God’s word and His fellowship.

Conspiracy is nothing new.

Serpent

Serpent

Ever since the expulsion from the Garden, humans have exhibited a tendency toward conspiracy. In fact, Eve’s and Adam’s original sin was a conspiracy with the serpent, intended to challenge their Creator.

In the book of Proverbs, after the prologue and call to honor the advice of parents, the first “nuts and bolts” piece of advice is to avoid entering into conspiracy!

Proverbs 1 verses 10-19
My son, if sinful men entice you,
    do not give in to them.
  If they say, “Come along with us;
    let’s lie in wait for innocent blood,
      let’s ambush some harmless soul;
  let’s swallow them alive, like the grave,
    and whole, like those who go down to the pit;
  we will get all sorts of valuable things
    and fill our houses with plunder;
   cast lots with us;
    we will all share the loot”—
my son, do not go along with them,
    do not set foot on their paths;
  for their feet rush into evil,
    they are swift to shed blood.
How useless to spread a net
    where every bird can see it!
  These men lie in wait for their own blood;
    they ambush only themselves!
  Such are the paths of all who go 
    after ill-gotten gain;
      it takes away the life 
        of those who get it.

For me, this sheds an encouraging light on those who choose to resist conspiracies.

Massacre in CO theater: 71 shot, 12 dead

UPDATE:

Police just released the identity of the suspect gunman as a “white” man, James Holmes, 24, of Aurora. Here’s his pic:

Originally from San Diego, Holmes had withdrawn from the Ph.D. program in neuroscience at the University of Colorado-Denver last month. He had his hair dyed red and referred to himself as The Joker to police. His apartment is said to be booby-trapped with a “sophisticated” maze of flammable devices. It could take hours or days for authorities to disarm it. Five nearby buildings have been evacuated. Police said Holmes had no criminal record in the state.

A midnight premier screening of the third Batman movie, “Dark Knight Rises,” in a Century 16 theater in Aurora, Colorado, became a real-life massacre when a man set off a smoke grenade and started shooting, killing 12 and injuring 58 people.

Aurora is a suburb less than 10 miles east of downtown Denver. More than 250 police officers from across the Denver metro area, as well as emergency crews from several cities are on the scene.

The killer is described by eyewitnesses as a black-clad 6-foot-tall man wearing a gas mask and bullet-proof vest, and armed with gun and rifle. The police chief said there’s no evidence of additional shooters.

The suspect was apprehended in the rear parking lot of the theater. Police said he did not resist arrest. He made a statement to police about possible explosives at his home, so an apartment building in north Aurora has been evacuated.

The Denver Post says he’s 24 years old.

Witnesses said the gunman kicked in an emergency exit door and threw a smoke bomb into the darkened Theater 8, before opening fire. The bullets pierced a nearby theater and injured movie-goers in that theater. Salina Jordan, 19, who was in Theater 8, told the Post she saw one girl struck in the cheek and others in the stomach, including a girl who looked to be around 9 years old.

A bulletin was issued to other police agencies throughout the metro area warning them of similar incidences in theaters near their jurisdictions.
