It seems our culture has become increasingly less adept at determining what is true and what is not. In a culture of 24-hour news feed and online opinions masquerading as fact, it should be no surprise that many Americans believe ideas that are nothing more than conspiracy theories. In fact, half of Americans believe at least one conspiracy theory.
• 40 percent believe the FDA is withholding natural cures for cancer.
• 27 percent believe America is hiding aliens in Area 51.
• 23 percent believe 9/11 was an inside job.
• 19 percent believe the government is using chemicals to control the population.
Typically, conspiracy theories start with some fringe group and then are picked up by some credible source. It’s hard to know what to believe. The struggle for truth is real. However, there is good news! Absolute truth does exist, and it is found in Jesus Christ.
