呼籲停止種族歧視,美國牧師以死相諫,引火自焚

Retired pastor saw ‘destiny’ in self-immolation A retired United Methodist pastor fatally set himself on fire in a shopping center parking lot in his hometown of Grand Saline, Texas, on June 23. His death was a final act of protest against social injustice, according to family members and the notes… 詳閱

七一後對教會生態的一點反思

七一預演佔中,據我所知,不只時代論壇所講的那幾位牧者,其實還有其他牧者在場,只是他們沒有被捕或被捕後不為人知。很多時候,人們只會看見事情的表面,就是他們被捕了,他們做了犯法的事,便以此判斷是非對錯。但其實他們在場的原因,主要是為了守護這班青年人,相信當晚在場的成年人,很多亦是因這緣故而留下來支持的。這班青年人為了香港而作出牲犧,… 詳閱

Hobby Lobby 的滑坡會停在哪裡?

The reason it’s unlikely the Supreme Court would uphold a religious exemption for vaccinations or blood transfusions is not something intrinsic to those claims; it’s simply that Alito finds them weird. Birth control is banned by the Bible? Sure. Blood transfusions are banned by the Bible? Don’t be silly. For… 詳閱

Love is concrete

I love Mankind. It’s PEOPLE I can’t stand… 十分喜愛這幅花生漫畫。「我愛人類,只是我受不了與人相處」,這句話深奧到不得了——愛一億個人,其實比愛一兩個人容易。爲什麼呢?因爲,愛,從來都是具體的。它要求你進入一個人實在的生命,明白她的性格、聆聽他的牢騷、花時間與她的相處、勇敢地敞開自己的心扉,甚至暴露自己的無助,然後深呼吸承受着風險付上… 詳閱

再論港式候派

一,引言 去年我撰寫了兩篇文章[1]回應鄧紹光以尤達/候活士觀點對佔中行動有所保留,當事人毫無學術討論誠意[2],令我本已打算不再淌這些渾水,然而,基於尤達/候活士觀點出發的言論,卻越來越流行,有用來談新聞自由、家庭價值、六四、腐敗政權等,彷如顯學,我便覺得有需要平衡一下,期望普羅信徒接觸尤達/候活士觀點時會有多些思考角度,不要盲目追捧時… 詳閱

美國阿米希教派在麻疹爆發下重新考慮疫苗

The largest outbreak of measles in recent U.S. history is underway. Ohio has the majority of the cases, with 341 confirmed and eight hospitalizations. The virus has spread quickly among the largely unvaccinated Amish communities in the state. The afternoon Fletcher arrived in the county, she collected samples, and a… 詳閱

講壇上的剽竊

Seattle megachurch pastor Mark Driscoll was accused last year of plagiarism in material he wrote with Tyndale House Publishers and InterVarsity Press. “Mistakes were made that I am grieved by and apologize for,” Driscoll said in a statement. More recently, popular Oklahoma City–based megachurch pastor Craig Groeschel has been accused… 詳閱

當代基督教音樂太自我中心?

What has struck me pretty forcibly is how much of both the music and the Christian commentary on the stations that play the music indulge in an uber-personal and sentimental interpretation of the Christian message and experience. The relevance of the Christian message is focused squarely on the individual and… 詳閱

人人都是個抗爭者

國務院發表《一國兩制在香港特別行政區的實踐》白皮書之後,單方面違背了《中英聯合聲明》(1984年12月19日)與《基本法》(1990年4月4日) 有關「一國兩制、高度自治」的承諾,引發港人極其不滿與忿怒。 原本不欲支持「和平佔中」的港人,在別無選擇下,唯有以具體的抗爭行動,就是透過參與「全民投票」來表達聲音,維護港人的自由與權益。超過七十萬人的投票,包括… 詳閱
