The Bible is filled with references to conspiracy, which I am going to prove to you in this article and the next. In this piece, we are going to deal with the regular usage of the term conspiracy in the Bible, and in a further piece we will look at how the Bible has a detailed theology of conspiracy overlapping with its theology of evil; the two realities are intricately interwoven. The sum of this whole argument will show that it is not those who say that we should avoid all talk of conspiracy that are wise, it is those who recognize that our world is filled with conspiracies that are wise. Because we are dealing with the world the way it is according to the Lord himself.
Those that refuse to acknowledge that our world is ruled by people making wicked decisions in the dark, decisions that are directly designed to undermine God, are walking around either naively, or willfully ignorant. Their blind trust in the power structures of our world can get them hurt, as well as those they influence. God does not put anything in His Word for no reason. Those things which He spends much time explaining in His Word are there for our profit, reproof and sanctification, so we are foolish to ignore what He says.
