Resisting the Easy Road to Glory

July 20, 2017

“Curiously enough, just at the right moment to begin filming, when the shadows were long enough and the light not too weak, I happened to notice near by a whole expanse of stones, all identical and looking uncommonly like loaves well baked and brown. How easy for Jesus to have turned these stone loaves into edible ones, as later, He would turn water into wine at a wedding feast! And, after all, why not? The Roman authorities distributed free bread to promote Caesar’s kingdom, and Jesus could do the same to promote His…

Jesus had but to give a nod of agreement and He could have constructed Christendom, not on four shaky Gospels and a defeated man nailed on a Cross, but on a basis of sound socio-economic planning and principles… Every utopia could have been brought to pass, every hope have been realized and every dream been made to come true. What a benefactor, then, Jesus would have been. Acclaimed, equally, in the London School of Economics and the Harvard Business School; a statue in Parliament Square, and an even bigger one on Capitol Hill and in the Red Square… Instead, He turned the offer down on the ground that only God should be worshipped.”

– Malcolm Muggeridge, while filming a documentary in Israel

“After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry.The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”

Matthew 4:2-4
