西方國家能否對伊斯蘭温和派施以援手,協助鞏固其力量嗎

國際基督教消息
Thomas Friedman describes for us the political implications of our clash with Muslim countries. As only he can, Friedman identifies the complicated geopolitical issues that make our fight against the Islamic State and Al Qaeda so difficult. He notes three major obstacles to the development of a reformed Islam tha… 詳閱

天主教教會對帕洛馬爾(Glyzelle Palomar)的苦難所需承擔的責任

For years, I have written in the pages of NCR about the Philippines. (See here and here.) The country, I believe, epitomizes the need for all Catholics to continue the fight against the Roman Catholic church’s ban on contraception. The pope’s visit to the Philippines last week seems to hav… 詳閱

教會不能參與政治?兼論《約拿書》

拜讀周保松教授「自由與宗教」一文1,說自由主義是人類經歷無數的宗教衝突而發展出來的成就,其中之一就是秉持政教分離的原則,意思是政府政策更不應偏袒任何教派;而掌權者更不可以某教派自居而剝奪別人的信仰自由。然而,這些政教分離思想一直被教會忽視而未有深化,剩下的只是信仰和政權機械二分區隔的粗淺思維2。無怪乎一場雨傘運動來臨,有些教會領袖只… 詳閱

馬丁路德金博士對今天溫和派有甚麼挑戰?

美國白人信徒究竟懼怕甚麼?

White friends in America’s Southland, we are living in a scary world. In any given month it seems there are fresh stories of black people marching in protest, Muslim terrorists attacking, non-English speakers crossing our borders. Anyone overhearing us can tell we are afraid – of being attacked, of bein… 詳閱

辯論醫助自殺

Although the station representatives weren’t initially aware of it, both I and the gentleman taking the opposing view were widowers who lost our wives to cancer. They were surprised and supportive when this turned out to be the case, and it helped balance the discussion since we both had ver… 詳閱

解放神學與香港教會

解放神學,一向在本港難以立足,楊牧谷於其著作《復和神學與教會更新》指出香港土壤根本容不下拉丁美洲解放神學與其衍生的亞洲本色神學在其中開花結果。(156–178頁)。即或本港某些教會與機構圈子流行的神學意識形態,於其社會分析、釋經取向與事工哲學等範疇接近解放神學,然而限於本港的歷史處境與港人文化的兼容性,帶有濃烈革命色彩的解放神學於教會現實… 詳閱

杜克大學與葛福臨(Franklin Graham)的爭議:哪些基督徒享有的空間應禁止回教徒涉足?

Duke University’s reversal of today’s plan to broadcast the Muslim call to prayer from its historic chapel tower has reinvigorated a debate over shared worship space. The Durham, North Carolina-based school had authorized Muslim students to recite the three-minute chant from Duke Chapel on Friday, the weekly day of assembl… 詳閱

山下之城 –基督徒與世俗政治

住在美國的人或許對這次大選中的互相攻奸,以及國會中黨派鬥爭的激烈感到十分厭煩。許多基督徒不禁懷疑,是否參與(多數是烏煙瘴氣的)政治活動是在浪費時間?縱然如此,讓我們也不要因噎廢食吧。在一個多元化的世俗社會裡,基督徒如何看待政治參與?更進一步地,如何更有效地在政治、文化和社會的議題上發揮更大的影響力?我們期望利用這篇短文,針對這些嚴… 詳閱

耶穌愛我?我愛你個頭!

不知為何,基督徒十分喜歡要與別人有分別,在筆者的教會生活中,有些導師經常問:「如果小組分享不談及信仰,與社區中心的分享有何分別呢?」當筆者與其他基督徒合作時,總會有人問「如果在合作當中没有互相支持,又與其他不信主的群體有何分別呢?」甚至當筆者舉辦社關活動時,也有基督徒問筆者:「如果活動不能傳福音,又與其他慈善團體有何分別呢?」 令筆… 詳閱
