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

美國教會內一名雙性戀者的分享

As far as I can see, the only difference between my faithfulness in marriage and anyone else’s is that I may be tempted by men and women alike. I exercise the same discipline of commitment that every married person does. But this was a new idea for my colleagues, makin… 詳閱

運動激情與學術門檻:世事沒有中立?

歷史、文化、性別、文學、倫理、地理、神學等的人文學科其中一個令人著迷之處,是它承載著社會道德良知。不少人由黃毛小子的本科生成長到學貫滿車的博士學人,皆一心一意推動社會議程,整個人生彷如奉獻了做宣教士,或像看破紅塵的出家人,不顧小我,只求畢生投入大業。當事人滿腦子社會使命,身旁子弟門徒對這些師傅的一言一行則如痴如醉,歌功頌德(反睦後… 詳閱

美國《今日基督教》刊登教會強姦犯故事的手法引起爭議

I am appalled that Christianity Today first ran this piece, and secondly have yet to take it down after many in the Christian community have asked them to. Classy that a Christian magazine who first bullied World Vision into the front pages, costing thousands of kids their needed sponsorships, i… 詳閱
