新約導賞(二):ART讀經法初探

上文提到,讀經本身便是詮釋,exegesis與eisegesis互相交錯,不存在絕對客觀的釋經。但是,這並不代表任意解經是可以接納的,因為如果盲目追求客觀釋經是只看見文本而忽視處境,那任意釋經就是只看見處境而忽視文本,問題沒有得到解決,卻只是倒置了。在文本與處境兩者之間,我們很難避免有優次輕重,可以從文本到處境,也可採用相反的進路,但不能顧此失彼。至於… 詳閱

教牧於政治爭議中的立論與角色 (上)

近日聖公會鄺保羅大主教於堂會內的講道,言談觸及對七一遊行與「佔中」等見解,引發社會與教會內熱烈的迴響。筆者嘗試在此探討教牧面對爭議性課題時,宜有三個基本立論,與因應職分而有四個不同角色。 1. 三個基本立論 首先,筆者不認為任何教牧或教會領袖對政治爭議的觀點與立場 (包括本人在內),等同上主啟示或絕對真理。正因如此,我們對七一遊行、支持與反… 詳閱

教宗向性侵犯受害者道歉

Pope Francis on Monday used his first meeting with victims of clerical sex abuse to offer his strongest condemnation of a crisis that has shaken the Roman Catholic Church, comparing priests who abuse minors to “a sacrilegious cult,” while begging forgiveness from victims and pledging to crack down on bishop… 詳閱

為沉默的主教發聲講句公道話

“別人笑我太維穩,我笑他人看不穿” 鄺保羅主教一篇講道引來教內教外人仕狂插,有說他解錯經,有說他高傲涼薄,連鄺主教本人也自嘲,預知這講道會成眾矢之的,但主教仍不以自己的名聲為念,向弟兄姊妹分享他的生命之道. 鄺主教勸戒我們要效法主耶穌,像以賽亞書53章講,”像羊在剪羊毛的手下無聲,他也是這樣的不開口”. 主耶穌的沉默,鄺主教可說… 詳閱

決賽在即,牧者們請盡快沉默!

世盃決賽將至,不少弟兄姊妹熱捧的球隊也先後出局,大家不要灰心,希望在明天,你們所付出的勞苦主是知道的!作為牧者,相比英超、歐洲國家盃,四年一度的世盃叫筆者最為擔心,見不少牧者於社交平台、講壇也提到世盃的資訊,筆者認為有必要勸勉各主內同道:「決賽在即,牧者們請盡快沉默!」 世盃只是屬世的事 今屆世盃於巴西舉行,因著時差問題,本港播映的… 詳閱

如何思考合一的呼籲?

在今年六月香港教會圈子裡有一份《關懷香港牧函》面世,由三十三名教牧聯署,不久,教報《時代論壇》訪問聯署者之一的中神院長李思敬。該三十三名聯署者大致上認為,面對香港政制爭議熾烈和社會撕裂,他們須強調基督徒要合一,要坦誠對話,即使他們之間的政治立場有很大分歧,例如有些支持佔中(例如朱耀明、戴耀廷等),有些卻質疑或反對佔中(例如吳宗文、… 詳閱
