Conspiracy Theories

Many people who claim to be Christians believe in various conspiracy theories and other hoaxes.

That's right, while they worship Jesus — who said he is the way, the truth, and the life — they prefer myths over truth.

Some conspiracy theories are relatively harmless. But others are downright dangerous.

Youth With A Mission (YWAM)

[Updated and expanded]

Youth With A Mission is an international, Christian missions "movement." It's "family of ministries" operates around the world. Yet YWAM has no headquarters, no Board of Directors, and no central leadership. It's missions are said to be "independent."

As MinistryWatch recently reported, YWAM's unique non-structured structure lacks the standard management, governance, and accountability functions that most ministries rely on to assess and address problems.

And problems there are. While YWAM does a lot of good work, there are ongoing reports of spiritual abuse. Not only that, but the 'movement' also has a troublesome theology.


Discernment is the act or process of exhibiting keen insight and good judgment.

The Bible teaches that Christians ought to grow in discernment, the ability to distinguish truth from error.
