為甚麼水喉匠也應該讀哲學?

Why shouldn’t educational institutions predominately offer classes like Business Calculus and Algebra for Nurses? Why should anyone but hobbyists and the occasional specialist take courses in astronomy, human evolution, or economic history? So, what good, if any, is the study of the liberal arts, particularly subjects like philosophy?  Why, i… 詳閱

如何陶造成一位牧者?

As a young pastor myself, one theme that caught my attention was the formative influence of mentors and friends. In what follows I’d like to highlight three lessons on mentorship for both younger and older pastors drawn from Calvin’s early years. First, choose your mentors wisely, with an eye to their weaknesses and strengths… 詳閱

「不合一,又如何?」 — 對《關懷香港牧函》的一點回應

iQuest於6月13日在其網站上刊登了一篇由三十多位基督教教會領袖及信徒聯署的《關懷香港牧函》(以下簡稱《牧函》)。 筆者同意牧函中取自以弗所書四:3的「竭力持守聖靈所賜合而為一的心」一句。我們可以做和能夠做的僅此而已。參約翰福音十七:20-23,因為「合一」是神的工作,從來都不是信徒要做的。在神的合一工作之下,信徒可以做的只是持守聖靈所賜合而為一的心,… 詳閱

Pope Francis: persecution against Christians is now greater than the early church

He added: A fundamentalist group, although it may not kill anyone, although it may not strike anyone, is violent. The mental structure of fundamentalists is violence in the name of God… 詳閱

你的信仰未必是我的信仰 ── 回應薛孔奇「這就是我的信仰」一文

看罷薛孔奇弟兄(下稱“薛生”)刊登在時代論壇的「這就是我的信仰」一文,發覺當中轉折太快、落差頗大。一時大數自己的信主歷程、之後說只是一名普通信徒;先說做任何事都應考慮到後果、及後又說「是否按真理而活乃是最大的考慮,後果並不重要」。到底薛生想表達甚麼?這些轉折引發筆者數點暇想。 一、「普通信徒」? 以薛生過往的信仰生活(薛生自己說的「… 詳閱

Why Christians are under pressure to exit Iraq

If ISIS can hold Mosul and consolidate its presence there, it will have taken a giant step towards its goal of creating an Islamist region, controlled by insurgents, that connects Iraq and Syria… 詳閱

美國循道衛理教會考慮容許在同性戀立場上有地區性分歧

On June 5, the Rev. Adam Hamilton and others offered “A Way Forward,” a proposal to let churches vote to depart from the Book of Discipline by hosting same-sex unions and welcoming gay pastors. The proposal also calls for letting annual conferences decide to depart from the Discipline by ordainin… 詳閱

美國:在基要基督教學校裡的生涯

For 29-year-old Jonny Scaramanga, who attended Victory Christian School in Bath until he was 14, the experience was “horrendous”. “At 8:15 I would arrive at my ‘office’ – a desk 2ft wide, with dividers 18 ins tall, designed to remove ‘distractions’,” he said. “Every morning we had an opening exercise… 詳閱

互聯網時代的罪

On the site, the leftmost column instructs us: “Choose A Sin.” The seven Deadlies are listed below. They structure a grab bag of testimonial content. Some bits are quiet and meditative, others satirically hilarious. (Gary Shteyngart’s video, filed under “Pride,” is a particularly biting treat.) Under “Envy,” Mary Walsh––equally thoughtfu… 詳閱

急需的氣候危機反思

It is time for us, past time, to end this foolish and incorrect notion that it is our world. It is, and always has been, God’s world. How dare we claim to be made in the image of this God and act as if God had and has nothing t… 詳閱
