Depravity of Man June 20, 2019 by Staff

British journalist and author Malcolm Muggeridge once said, "The depravity of man is at once the most empirically verifiable reality but at the same time the most intellectually resisted fact." If you don't believe in the depravity of man—which simply means that our nature is inherently sinful, then just read your local newspaper. There's a steady stream of crime, corruption, and depravity reported on daily. Yet, the idea that we're all sinners is strongly resisted. We've been told that we're basically good, with maybe a few bad apples in the mix. However, if you're tempted to think that you're basically good ask yourself if you'd be comfortable with any of your thoughts from the last 24-hours being projected on a movie screen for all to see. If you answered no, then you agree with Muggeridge.
