教會可如何重建婚姻上的分野?

The one bit of good news in all this is that marriage is comparatively strong among college-educated Americans. For this group, divorce has come down since the height of the divorce revolution in the late 1970s and early.. But the bad news, as I noted in a report calledWhen Marriag… 詳閱

拒絕的理由(二)

承上文:拒絕的理由(一) 4. 破壞合一 合一並非空洞的概念,或不吵架,或將不同意見消弭融和。我會引用之前寫過有關合一的舊文:「講合一不外乎幾段經文,第一,耶穌命令門徒彼此相愛,重點在於洗腳,即彼此服事,而非復和或和諧唔鬧交(當然唔鬧交更好)。 第二,是耶穌為門徒的合一祈禱,這裡的重點在於,這種合一是與父與子的合一,門徒與父合一,門徒與子… 詳閱

拒絕的理由(一)

近日政治議題日趨激烈,不但社會,甚至教會中的關係亦因而面對極大的衝激。因此,才有所謂的《關懷香港牧函》,當中的內容主要是「好來好去」。事實上,華人很重視關係,而基督教也很講包容和愛,簡直是天生一對。因此,相信面對近來的社會問題,必定令很多人感覺不舒服。甚至有些人當提及這些問題,就被人勸退、教導或警告,甚至有牧者曾提出「逐出教會」的… 詳閱

Christianity is being ‘airbrushed out’ of Scotland, says Free Church

The draft interim constitution falsely marks Scotland as  “bland Godless state,” A statement released today says the Free Church is “disappointed” that the proposed constitution offers “no recognition of the public place of Christianity, or even the national Church,” and notes that religious freedom for the Church has not been guaranteed… 詳閱

Women in ministry: why equality is still a long way off

Having ordained women to the priesthood in 1994 after a fiercely-fought campaign by traditionalists determined to keep them out, when would it nerve itself for the next logical step, the consecration of bishops? According to statistics published on the Church of England’s website, there has been a sharp rise in th… 詳閱

保羅隨想曲 — 醒了

Pastor Paul Mok
在上有權柄的,人人當順服他.因為沒有權柄不是出於 神的.凡掌權的都是 神所命的。 (羅 13:1) 我一向就被教導要遵照以上的經文而行,自己也深信不異. 及至近年的香港政治發生了很大的變化,再看這經文,才發現自己對上帝話語的無知. 其實只要以”閱讀理解”的知識去看,就很易發現到這段經文最少要從第1節看到第7節才是一個段絡. 上帝在這段經文裏要我們順服的… 詳閱

美國長老教會議決認定同性婚姻為合符基督教

The amendment approved Thursday by the Presbyterian General Assembly requires approval from a majority of the 172 regional presbyteries, which will vote on the change over the next year. But in a separate policy change that takes effect at the end of this week’s meeting, delegates voted to allow minister… 詳閱

我如何從佛教家庭裡成為基督徒

Each morning, I would wake up to the smell of incense burning. Oranges and pineapple cake were offered in front of Buddha statues in a room designated for meditation. Our home was like a temple. On each wall hung a Buddha portrait, totaling more than 30 deities throughout the house… 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
