莫特曼認為,把異性戀立場當作為信仰核心是異端行徑

原刊於此網站

J.M. Because the church is about the Gospel and not about sex. And we believe in the justification of human beings by faith alone, and not by faith and heterosexuality or whatever. You can’t add to it. This is for us, in the Protestant tradition in Germany, heresy. And homosexual or heterosexual, whatsoever believes by faith alone is saved and is certainly able to be ordained in a Christian community. I will not say that a lesbian or a homosexual partnership is equal to a marriage, because a marriage is intended to father children, while these partnerships are not intentionally directed to adopt children. But I have no problems in blessing such a partnership. Why should I not bless a partnership between human beings? And homosexuality is neither a sin nor a crime. To be short-sighted, as I am, is neither a sin nor a crime. So I don’t see the schism or the heat of the debate on it. I know how much this is destroying churches in this country, but I don’t know why this is more important than the question of war and peace, for example.

  1. […] 作為在這十多年來有跟香港教會一起關注同性戀議題的我,雖然觀點與反同教團不盡相同,但我總算頗了解被薰陶要拼命反同的信徒的想法和今天他們的傷感。因此我寫這文章來安慰一下。當然,這十多年來已有一些信徒變成了死硬反同人士,跟他們談是沒意義的,他們只會戰意極濃地不斷鑽枝節來反駁,雖然他們口裡不會承認,但他們的身體早就誠實地視反同為基督教核心教義(而神學家莫特曼認為這樣修改核心教義是異端行徑),並且不惜在教內製造紛爭,但我希望還有一些信徒感到此文令他們稍為釋懷。 […]
