Coming out of the Assemblies of God, Marin wrote the best-selling Love Is an Orientation (2009) and has been a regular on the evangelical speaking circuit. He has consciously avoided taking a side on gay marriage or gay ordination, however, preferrin… 詳閱

教牧於政治爭議中的立論與角色 (下)

筆者於上文指出教牧於當前紛擾的時局中,宜有三個基本立論(非絕對、非超然、非一律),並因應各人職份有所不同,至少有四個不同角色可供扮演。沒有一位教牧可扮演全部四重角色,他/她只能選取其一至二,或遊走於兩個角色之間,或予人印象某個角色較為鮮明。 一、祭司的角色 他們就說:「來吧!我們可以設計謀害耶利米;因為我們有祭司講律法,智慧人設謀… 詳閱

光明的生命(約壹1:6-7)

Tony Wong 黃嘉漢
作為傳道人,我常常幫助及教導那些接受耶穌基督成為個人救主的人如何活出基督徒的新生命。許多時候,這些初信主或對信仰有興趣的朋友都會問我:「一個接受了耶穌基督成為個人救主的人之生活中應有什麽表現呢?」我相信在約翰一書一章六至七節這兩節經文中,我們發現一個接受了耶穌基督成為個人救主的人有三種生活表現1: 第一種的生活表現是他們必須離開罪惡… 詳閱

What Rowan Williams really said about Buddhism

Sensationalist headlines insist that the former Archbishop of Canterbury has turned to Buddhism – but has he really exchanged his mitre for an alms bowl? In an article for this week’s New Statesman, Lord Rowan Williams highlights the importance of ritual within his prayer life, sharing that he begins eac… 詳閱

天主教會與多個基督教宗派互認洗禮

Leaders of U.S. Roman Catholic and some Protestant churches will sign a historic agreement Tuesday in Austin by which the two traditions will formally recognize each other’s liturgical rites of baptism. The product of seven years of talks among five denominations, the agreement will be signed at 7:15 p.m. Tuesda… 詳閱

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
