我們是否傳講一個關於缺乏的福音?

“Inadequacy stories encourage immature emotions like greed, vanity, and insecurity by telling us that we are somehow incomplete. These stories then offer to remove the discomfort of those emotions with a simple purchase or association with a brand.… 詳閱

非尼哈信徒與他們的福音聯盟

When Enns refers to Phinehas, he’s talking about an important standard-bearer for holiness in the Old Testament. Numbers 25 says that when the Israelites were partaking in idolatry because of intermingling with Moabite women, Phinehas, a priest and grandson of Aaron, the brother of Moses, saw an Israelite man tak… 詳閱

勇敢做正當的事 (寫於六四25周年)

上星期,我身在波蘭華沙,當地正準備慶祝25年前6月4日發生的一件事。波蘭總統科莫羅夫斯基在展覽板上寫: 1989年6月4日,這國家的聲音以投票決定波蘭將再次成為自由。由智慧和勇敢的人民推動了像雪崩的改變。這25年的自由,波蘭向更好的改變。 這是一次甚麼的決定?簡單來說,1988年5月至8月期間,波蘭工人舉行大型示威,導致當時共產黨政府願意承認團結工會的合法… 詳閱

曾思瀚教授批評五一八和賴特論爭為世俗權力遊戲

 Who gives these people the right to speak?…   When voices attempt to drown out other voices, the process becomes a power struggle and church political game rather than dialogue.  As such, these voices whether debating the family value issue or NPP issue are playing a dangerous secularized power game… 詳閱

新文化、科技及經濟下的青少年事工

Let me define what I mean with these terms. By defense, I mean that parents and churches must attempt to protect children from damaging content. Adults have a responsibility to establish boundaries that guard kids from harmful material in movies and television before they are mature enough to wisely navigat… 詳閱

神學教授Stackhouse: 上帝不是我的一切,也不能滿足我一切需要

Actually, No, You Are NOT “My Everything” Robert Louis Wilken’s magisterial study of The Spirit of Early Christian Thought concludes, as it ought, with the highest of concerns among the Fathers: love of God. Gregory of Nyssa, Augustine of Hippo, Maximus the Confessor—they all tell us to “transfer our whole longing t… 詳閱

不怕死的故事

在這世界,其實很多人都怕死,原因有許多,有些人就害怕落到地獄被牛頭馬面嚇暈;一些就是聽聞地獄裡有油鑊,驚惶失措;有些人驚被勾脷根,試問誰人沒講過大話?甚至,有些人驚下世投胎為人類寵物,或許,是因著對自家寵物的愧疚吧!總之,對他們而言,死後的世界真是非常恐怖。 但另一方面,偏偏又有一些人是不怕死的,原因可能是人不想面對現實,而萌生的自… 詳閱

從崇拜中的「常用法」,反思我們的崇拜觀

昨天晚上是崇拜主席訓練第一班的第二課,我們在開始前也稍稍的討論過我上一篇文章所帶來的一些迴響,我們都同意一些主席的用語實在要留心,作思想。當中我們討論過「我們預備好迎見主面」的這句話,大家都覺得這句話對我們並沒有十分大的問題,因為我們教會的崇拜主席並沒有說這句話的傳統,反而另一句相似的話就常用在我們的禱告中:那就是「求主來到我們中… 詳閱
