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可… 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,不要盲目追捧時興… 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 … 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 accuse… 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 an… 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,包括不… 詳閱

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
