“Nothing can extinguish it. To the end of time it shall be there and shall always manifest itself, and men must never lose heart because of that. All [mankind’s ideas and struggles to create his own utopia] are absolutely worthless—the society in which utopianism is the great pursuit is the one that is about to commit suicide. The great guarantee that human life is always worth creating, always worth bringing into this world, always worth living is that there is built into it an indestructible awareness that life belongs to eternity and not to time. [This] shines with an incredible brightness in the one place in the world where you would not, under any circumstances, expect to find it surviving. The Catacombs.” —Malcolm Muggeridge, Firing Line #433, with W.F. Buckley, Jr., Sept. 6, 1980, PBS
We can preach politics or we can preach Jesus.
We can rage against the machine or we can love like Jesus.
We can trumpet conspiracies or we can comfort like Jesus.
People need Jesus.
Learn, live, preach, love like Jesus.
It’s what’s important—it’s what will last.
It comes at great risk and sometimes great cost, but it’s the one and only thing that can fix the world, one heart—one life at a time.
One thought on “Priorities in a Suicidal World”
January 2nd 2021
Spurgeon’s reading for today was from Colossians 4:2, “Continue in Prayer”. I saw your video on Colossae and thought it was cool. I read your blog, “This man loves Jesus” I thought. Whether you are weird or not, I do not know, but the picture above was hysterical and prompted me to write. May the Lord bless you this year.
