What They Said: Malcolm Muggeridge


“Jesus himself, even in his obscurity, dreaded the gathering of crowds, and where possible avoided them. Everything in Christianity that matters is from individual to individual; collectivities belong to the Devil, and so easily respond to his persuasion. The Devil is a demagogue and sloganeer; Jesus was, and is, concerned with individual souls, with the Living Word. What he gives us is truth carried on the wings of love, not slogans carried on the thrust of power.”

  1. Matthew 4:25
    Large crowds followed Him from Galilee and the Decapolis and Jerusalem and Judea and from beyond the Jordan.

    Mark 10:1
    Getting up, He went from there to the region of Judea and beyond the Jordan; crowds gathered around Him again, and, according to His custom, He once more began to teach them.

  2. “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them”. Jesus of Nazareth. .
    Isn’t he the one they named the religion after?

  3. Isn’t it self-contradicting and schizophrenic, to advocate, extol and promote, on one hand, Muggeridge’s mercy-delivering, peace-administering hero of “truth carried on the wings of love”, while on the other hand, to advocate, extol and promote an ill-willed sociopath’s malignant, depraved, unmerciful, hate-oozing​/hate-mongering lies and condemnations against the loving content and the loving participants in a Pepsi commercial?

    Which of those two opposite and conflicting paths is the one opened with “the keys to the kingdom”?

    Which is “the way, the truth, and the life”?

    They aren’t both derived from and facilitated and accessed by “the holy spirit”, are they?

    I humbly suggest that some very deep, very painful, very honest “soul searching” is needed. NEEDED.

    You might recall one concerned individual’s precautionary advisory, saying that “you cannot serve two masters” and still be the recipient of his blessings.

    “If You Choose Not To Decide, You Still Have Made A Choice.”

    1. In my opinion there was nothing loving about the pepsi commercial. Running a clip of something controversial is not promoting it, but brought forth for discussion.

      I believe Celia is going through serious “soul searching”.

    2. I agree with John Powell wholeheartedly. And he has added a critical dimension to this discussion.
