The Wicked Conspire

It’s not an accident that the wicked are constantly trying to discredit “conspiracy theory”, because everything they do is an evil conspiracy against God and Man:

Christianity does not have an evil problem. To say that is to completely misunderstand Christianity. Evil is a requirement for Christianity, evil is a necessity, because our Lord came into this world to experience evil, fight against evil, and defeat evil. And he did.

Evil can conspire all it wants, but the Lord sees it, he has it pegged, and this is what his word says,

“1 Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? 2 The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed, saying, 3 “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.” 4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. 5 He rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, 6 “I have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain” (Psalm 2:1-6).

Evil can conspire all it wants. And it does. It conspired to bring down the King of kings himself, and in doing so it guaranteed its own defeat. The devil, the Pharisees and more destroyed themselves when they struck at the King. They killed him, but that was not the end of the story as we know. God was at work in this whole event making sure that his wrath against ours sins found its satisfaction on the cross of Jesus. Because of this, evil’s greatest victory was its guarantee of defeat.

And evil’s defeat can be your victory, too, if you turn from your sins and place your trust in Jesus.

Never let anyone tell you that Christianity has an evil problem. Without Christianity we would not have our definition of evil. No other religion in the world gives us the modern, western understanding of evil.

If evil did not exist, there would be no Christianity. Jesus Christ came, suffered, and died in order to free us from the chains of evil. Which is why every evil act you witness, every evil thing you do, is testament to the necessity of his sacrifice that we recognize and honor today.
