USA - Conspiracy Theories Exposed

Arno Froese

The post, from Nov. 10, includes a photo of a person holding up the front page of the June 2011 edition of The Sovereign Independent, a newspaper consisting of opinion pieces about well-known conspiracy theories. It has since folded.

On the front of the June 2011 edition, there is a teaser for a four-page spread about 9/11, which promises it will be “exposing the explosive [World Trade Center] evidence.” Below this, is an anti-vaccination headline: “Depopulation through forced vaccination: The zero carbon solution!” A picture of Bill Gates sits alongside, with his quote: “The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about nine billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by, perhaps, 10 or 15 percent.” The paper then refers to the billionaire businessman as “Billy ‘the kid killer’ Gates.”

Meanwhile, the quote from Bill Gates alongside the headline about depopulating the earth is one that has been repeatedly taken out of context. Gates made the comment during a TED talk in 2010 about reducing the world’s carbon emissions to zero and was not suggesting the global population should be killed off using vaccines. In fact, his stance is the opposite., 17 November 2020

Arno's Commentary

The news agency Reuters employs reliable journalists, editors, and fact-checkers to establish their reputation. Interestingly, the newspaper The Sovereign Independent, proclaiming these sensational claims, no longer exists.

Here is our reason for publishing such warnings: increasingly, well-respected ministries and ministers of the Gospel have been caught in the web of illogical claims. We, the Church of Jesus Christ, consisting of born-again believers, must fulfill our task to be lights in this dark world. Light always exposes darkness; truth will always expose lies. Furthermore, we Christians—while subject to our respective governments the world over—in reality constitute a spiritual nation, not established by weapons of war; not having borders, walls, gates, and fences. We are a spiritual entity described by the apostle Peter: “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9). That is who we are; that is our calling, nothing more, nothing less.
