Bad Theology, False Flags, and The Church
First, what is a “false flag?” Wikipedia says:
The contemporary term false flag describes covert operations that are designed to deceive in such a way that activities appear as though they are being carried out by individual entities, groups, or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them.Let’s boil it down further to suggest that it a deception that leads to the conviction a person not responsible. It’s not the same as framing someone for a crime. It’s more like creating the scenario that allows one person to blame the other person for such a wrong.
That wasn’t so hard. Sure, it might be difficult to ferret out, but it’s easy to see how it might work, especially as a political intrigue. But could it happen in our daily lives? Might we ever fall into such a trap? I don’t think it’s very difficult to do. Not that it happens a lot, but we are a deceptive bunch of people, we humans.
