Conspiracy Theorist No More

The following is a guest post.

Brook Louis Conner is a mystic at heart, a scholar in the mind and a writer by nature. He is searching for truth, justice, love, equality, and to be forever in the present, and is contemplating renouncing everything, becoming a 'pilgrim to the world'.

"Peace and Love bring forth happiness; however, so does a pen, paper and a good conversation."

To my beloved anarchists and peace builders,

After many years of pursuing the truth behind the Illuminati/New World Order, I have finally liberated my mind of such childish acts. “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things” 1 Corinthians 13:11. I bought into the thought that there is a secret society running the world in a Satanic manner. I was in opposition to the bringing together of nations for peace, just because I felt as if the apocalyptic texts in the bible were speaking about today’s times. After my involvement of studying these eschatological books at an academic level rather than searching my own interpretation, I have come to realize that those books were written in a different time and place, and they were not talking about the year 2012. Why in the world would a prophet over 2000 years ago worry about Obama, UN, Gun Laws, Iran, Oil, etc.? Those stories are of a totally different era and served their purpose for totally different people. Throughout history there has been an apocalypse fever that has struck the world. Everyone thinks that they are living in the end times. Well I’m pretty sure that their predictions were wrong; seeing as we all are still alive. Should one then discount every apocalyptic text in the bible or any other religion? We most certainly shall not! Speaking from a biblical sense, there are truths at the heart of the eschatological books. Mostly that truth is justice for the poor, widows, and orphans. So we shouldn’t discredit the biblical accounts; however we shouldn’t assume that they are speaking of the present times.

 Regardless of the biblical accounts, one can still question the corruption and unnecessary suffering that is happening all over the world today. Because of all of these atrocities, people have found a way to blame someone/something for its presence, and for many it is the Illuminati. From a New World Order to the Free Masons, they are in control of the world’s financing, politicking, and new technology (ie. facial recognition or RFID chips). Conspiracy theorists have concluded that these satanic elitist men are in control of our lives. Well, I’m finally selling my shares of this uneducated stock and buying into reality. In Uganda I have seen people who have risen out of suffering to achieve great things. I have also met with people who are still struggling to rise to their full potential. Is it the Illuminati, who apparently control the world, causing this? I cannot say so! The fact is that there are corrupt people in high places. The evil lies with the politicians who have homosexuality illegal. The evil lies within the politicians who allow the suffering of millions of people in order to receive billions of dollars for aid and divert the funds into their own pockets. Here, I have seen a force connected with global politicians that are playing chess with their own citizens’ lives. It goes beyond a conspiracy theory! It is a theory of suffering. A theory of pain for profit; not only within Uganda but every other country. So why are Christians, who claim to love and cherish every form of life, so against peace? If a world government is formed to implement peace throughout the world and give every single one of God’s children food to eat and a place to sleep, then Hallelujah! Must we wait/cause the apocalypse to happen in order for a few of God’s chosen to be sent to heaven? Or can man do as the most holy texts say and to live in peace with one another. To love your neighbor, is that so hard? We live in a individualistic society in the US. I have realized that people are controlled not by the illuminati, but by internet, games, phones, and even religion. The Ugandans have implemented a sense of community that has changed my life forever. A community that is impossible in the US because of our individualistic idols.

So I challenge you conspiracy theorists, especially the Christian ones who desperately want the world to end (which if in biblical terms would cause the suffering of billions). Why are you foolishly concerned with how the world is controlled by a society that has not been proven to exist by scholars? The conspiracy is your idol and your worship is the demonizing the already suffering. Instead of yearning for the end times and researching other uneducated BS, move your body and soul with what the prophets and Jesus were talking about. Don’t be concerned about the Apocalypse. Be concerned about your neighbor that will get the nodding disease, go hungry, or sleep without shelter. Pray for the poor, widowed, and orphans. There is a bigger world out there and it doesn't revolve around a satanic controlled secret society.
