從基督信仰看Brittany Maynard 結束生命的決定

face on this week’s People magazine cover is Brittany Maynard, a 29-year-old, recently married woman who went public with her plan to take a fatal prescription on November 1, rather than live with her terminal brain cancer until its deadly end. Her reasons include not merely avoiding the suffering she expects to experience, but als… 詳閱

在殯儀工作裡事奉神

Caleb Wilde is that rare breed of death writer who doesn’t write about death from the perspective of someone dying or someone having buried a loved one. A sixth generation funeral director in small-town Pennsylvania, Wilde’s popular blog, Confessions of a Funeral Director, has earned him a wide following an… 詳閱

“太初有道,道與神同在,道就是神”, 此“道”與道家的“道”有多少相通意義?

近期聽了多次有関莊子道家思想的講座。 (請參看 34.17 片段) 按講者闡述, 道家所描述的’道’很接近基督信仰中的’上帝’.,使我聯想到約翰福音第一章第1及2節,不期然認為兩者要表達的對象其實是一致的. 在網上找到對這問題的一些討論,有反對亦有同意。  http://hermeneutics.stackexchange.com/questions/2307/why-do-many-chinese-bibles-translate-logos-in-john-11-as-%E9%81%93-dao. 看後我仍然… 詳閱

為何福音派山頭主義戕害基督福音?

The reaction to my analysis of the God TV debacle has been interesting, to say the least. Many people were appreciative and thankful that someone articulated what they were thinking. Others were horrified at what they perceived as an attack on Christian brothers and sisters. While I expected that, what intrigue… 詳閱

教宗在家庭議會裡贏了、輸了、抑或平手?

How you view the no-consensus outcome of the just-concluded Extraordinary Synod on the Family very much depends on whether or not you are rooting for Pope Francis to change the Catholic Church. The unexpectedly warm welcome given to gay Catholics in the mid-synod report raised hopes that a major chang… 詳閱

The University of Notre Dame is holding a two-day conference to explore appropriate pastoral strategies for parishioners who regard themselves as non-heterosexual but accept Catholic Church teaching on marriage and sexuality… 詳閱

咒詛詩文化

「此時不讀咒詛詩,更待何時?」 面對香港此情此景,不少信徒都心如火燒;目睹一次又一次的不公義,有信徒提議要宣讀咒詛詩來咀咒仇敵。其中詩篇裡就有許多可供參考的例子,例如詩109篇,內容是詛咒仇敵家破人亡、絕子絕孫、遺臭萬年等等,內容無不狠毒。 早前在一個分享會上,友人問道:「為何基督教沒有為有需要者提供咒詛祈禱的服務?」大家聽後都感到很新… 詳閱

拜金、佔領香港與路加福音十八 18-30:一個不方便的公義

Occupy HK has occupied much of my Facebook news feed. Many organizations have paid attention besides just the newspaper. The blatant human rights violation of the police crackdown even has Amnesty International on alert. During this time, I’m also in dialogue with people with all different opinions. One consistent argumen… 詳閱

福音派過份強調婚姻令單身人士難受

It seems to me that the evangelical church places marriage on something of a pedestal, describing it in elevated terms, and investing enormous amounts of time and resources into strengthening that institution. I wasn’t born in the evangelical movement and so don’t know if it was always this way, bu… 詳閱

「得救」的四個層面

出埃及記六章6-7節:所以你要對以色列人說:我是耶和華,我要把你們從埃及人的重擔底下救出來;我要拯救你們脫離他們的奴役;我要用伸出來的膀臂,並藉著嚴厲的審判來救贖你們。我要以你們作我的人民,我也要作你們的神… 領出來–Munk拉比說,按照這段經文,神救百姓出埃及有四個字描述。首先是領出來(go out),接著有解救(deliver)和救贖(redeem),還有取得… 詳閱
