Malcolm Muggeridge “The Green Stick: A Chronicle of Wasted Years”

Quotation on truth's casualty from Malcolm Muggeridge:

"Yet even so, truth is very beautiful; more so, as I consider, than justice - today’s pursuit – which easily puts on a false face. In the nearly seven decades I have lived through, the world has overflowed with bloodshed and explosions whose dust has never had time to settle before others have erupted; all in purportedly just causes. The quest for justice continues, and the weapons and the hatred pile up; but truth was an early casualty. The lies on which our wars have been fought and our peace treaties concluded. The lies of revolution and counter-revolution! The lies of advertizing, of news, of salesmanship, of politics. The lies of the priests in the pulpit, the professor at his podium, the journalist at his typewriter! The lie stuck like a fishbone in the throat of the microphone, the hand-held lies of the prowling cameraman.

"Ignazio Salone told me once how, when he was a member of the old Comintern, some stratagem was under discussion, and a delegate, a newcomer who had never attended before, made the extraordinary observation that if such and such a statement were to be put out, it would not be true. There was a moment of dazed silence, and then everyone began to laugh. They laughed and laughed until tears ran down their cheeks and the Kremlin walls seemed to shake. The same laughter echoes in every council chamber and cabinet room, wherever two or more are gathered together to exercise authority. It is truth that has died, not God."

What "truths" are you believing that you know are not true, but you are afraid to dig deep for fear your world view may fall like a house of cards? Jesus said, if you continue in my word, you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. Not free to rape and kill, but free to love and serve one another!
