The True ‘Tin Foil Hat’ Wearers :: By Candy Austin

Tinfoil Hat Brigade – slang for aluminum or tin foil makeshift hat on one’s head; a nickname for the mentally deranged; describes people who have paranoia or belief in conspiracy theories; shorthand for saying someone is paranoid or crazy.

1 Peter 4:14 “If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.”

The True Bible Believers who actually walk the walk and talk the talk are often viewed as a type of “Tin Foil Hat Brigade,” especially by those who are on the outside looking in. Oftentimes, we will be labeled, accused, and dubbed by the secular world of so many things, from being self-righteous, legalistic, to unloving, paranoid, even hypocritical, prudish, and not to mention delusional for believing in the things that the Holy Bible teaches.

Mark 5:40-42 “And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying. And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise. And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.”

Some of these accusations could be true when it comes to certain attitudes or behaviors that we may have, but the main question is, “Are we truly ‘delusional or crazy’ for believing in what the Bible teaches?” To those who are on the outside of Faith in Christ, to believe in a virgin birth, a man walking on water, people rising from the dead, the sea parting, and the sun standing still for a whole day, among many other beyond fascinating biblical reports would seem ludicrous, especially to those who do not have eyes to see or ears to hear.

Once again, my honest inquiry would be, “Is it irrational for us to believe in these things specifically when it pertains to God and the spiritual realm?” Speaking of the supernatural, I and countless others, especially the eyewitnesses to the accounts recorded in the Bible, don’t or would not think it is in any way, shape, or form delusional and/or irrational for us to believe in such at all! In fact, the unseen realm is more real than what we can see right in front of us in the here and now, if you really want to boil it all down. “Believest thou this?”

John 11:26 “And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?”

On the flip side, if we want to talk about things that are ludicrous, delusional, absurd, foolish, strange, and downright preposterous, let’s talk about the condition that our society and the world at large are in right now! How about the fact that in recent years, people have subscribed to the belief that there are now more than 2 genders! Last I looked, which was a few years ago, btw, it was at around 32 variants! Today, in doing a quick search on the internet, it shows that they were up to 72 at one point. But that, my friends, is ‘old news’…. Now it is up to 81 on their ridiculous spectrum! Seriously, who are the deranged ones now?

John 9:28-30 “Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses’ disciples. We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is. The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.”

How about the fact that our modern-day youth now believe that one can identify as anything they want on any particular day, from being a toaster to being a cat, depending on how one may feel at that moment or hour! Yes, you read that right; on any given day, one can now decide that they are no longer a 65-year-old man but can instead identify as a 5-year-old girl! (Insert long, incredulous, and mortified stare!)

Another anomaly in the last several years is that people have invited family and friends to witness themselves marrying inanimate objects like anything from a car to the ocean to life-sized dolls and even to themselves! Once again, who are the delusional really?

Just recently while shopping, we encountered a young man at a department store literally wearing a huge pearl necklace and earrings that couldn’t be any more obvious; then, as if that wasn’t enough, we came across a big burly man at another store with a full beard complete with heavy glittery eye makeup and nail polish that one couldn’t miss even if they wanted or tried to! That’s not all; we also ran into another young man at a home improvement store who wore a chunky diamond choker necklace with matching drop-down earrings all in pretty much the same day, too!

2 Corinthians 4:4 “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”

Gender confusion is truly a widespread and pervasive deviation from God’s sacred design of male and female, which is detailed in the book of Genesis, and sadly, it’s only going to get worse from here. Tin Foil Hat Brigade is a label given to a group of people who believe in so-called conspiracy theories about the government and/or are deluded and deceived about other matters as well. Basically, they are a group of “crazies,” if you will.

In our upside-down, topsy-turvy world, the ones who choose to believe in the Holy Bible and who want to live a holy lifestyle are the ones considered the ‘tin foil hat wearers.’ But the ones mentioned above who radically oppose God’s design for life, living, genders, marriage, children, morality, and truth are woefully given a ‘free pass.’ Basically, they are validated and considered brave for doing such things, but according to God’s Holy Word and righteous standards, these kinds of deeds, thoughts, and actions are actually an abomination to Him!

Does that matter to anyone anymore? Does angering Almighty Creator God of the Universe mean anything to people these days? Obviously and apparently not! Therefore, ready or not… judgment is coming, friends! #Maranatha!


I often wonder what our world will look like 20 years from now, and I’m afraid the fact of the matter is that it will not be good, much less even remotely sane! Unless more godly parents are able to steer their children away from this type of grooming through avenues such as secular cartoons, music, television, toys, and entertainment, the future generations to come will only consist of all of this gross apostasy and so much more absurdity and confusion than we are witnessing and seeing right now!

Maybe the point should be that we all were ‘true wearers of the proverbial tin foil hat’ at one point and time. Especially when we were under the ‘blinding cloak of the enemy’ before we came to the understanding of God’s Truth, which allowed His light to shine into our hearts and minds! A light and grace that was able to gently, graciously, and radically help to wake us up from all of the mess that we were lost in!

Even still, ‘Tin Foil Hat Brigade’ or not, and call us what they may, our job while we are here is to pray for those trapped in this confusion because we, too, were once blinded by the enemy as well! Once, we were blind, but now, we can see; once, we were lost, but now, we are found! Such amazing grace lavishly poured out on us from Abba Father God that saved not only a wretch like me but can save every single one of us… if only we will let Jesus in!

Amazing Grace Hymn Lyrics:

Amazing grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come,
‘Tis grace has brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun.

If you haven’t already, try Jesus! Let Him set you free from the ‘tin foil hat mind-control captivity’ that we all have been or are in right now…. I promise that you will not regret it!

Acts 16:30-34 “And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway. And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.”

Until next time… Maranatha!

Sincerely & In Christ,
