沒有手提電話的一天

  當我醒來的時候,不知爲何,鬧鐘一直停留在六點三十四分。 其實起初並沒有特別留意。大概是靈魂已經甦醒約七成以後,呆呆地望着眼前的鬧鐘,才察覺鬧鐘的時針、分針、秒針像沉默的藝術品般一動也不動。鬧鐘大概是壞了。或者沒有電。 其實,我平日已經不太留意這個鬧鐘。自從幾年前正式轉投iPhone 陣營以後,睡房的鬧鐘只像儀式般被擱在一旁。所謂「調校鬧… 詳閱

抗議美國印弟安那州通過反同法例的六間公司

The passage of an Indiana law that critics warn could lead to business owners refusing service to LGBT customers has triggered protests from some of the biggest companies in the country. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act will allow individuals and corporations to use religion as a defense if they are… 詳閱

如果上帝創造宇宙,誰來創造上帝?

Many arguments claiming to prove the existence of God have been proposed throughout the centuries. A popular argument is that, since all effects come from causes, there must have been a “first cause” that is outside the material world—an “uncaused cause”. The response to many of these arguments, however, is:… 詳閱

福音派信徒對瀕死人士有關天堂的講述有兩個截然不同的看法

If nothing else the persistence of a divided evangelical mind in regards to afterlife testimonials should remind us that there is no such thing as a monolithic evangelicalism in America. More than simply a divided Protestantism (as Todd Brenneman has argued in an excellent piece), there are at least two… 詳閱

訪問離開福音派的 Rachel Held Evans

How are millennials identifying with the sacraments, when most evangelical churches don’t place much emphasis on them? Even in churches that are not highly sacramental or use that language, we do see some presence of the sacraments in pretty much every community of faith. If it’s a functioning, living, breathing… 詳閱

美國一名前警員牧師呼籲警察停止槍殺手無寸鐵的人

As a former police leader and now a pastor, I am calling for an end to the killing of unarmed people by police. I’m talking about lethal violence used to resolve standoffs and resistance involving unarmed persons. It is not right, it is destroying the important relationships police must have… 詳閱

務實的路-我的聖經原文學習之路(下)

本文為「重新上路-我的聖經原文學習之路(上)」的繼篇 前言: 已故新約希臘文權威 A. T. Robertson 博士曾提醒教牧同工,正因他們的職份,他們必須要成為聖經的專家,因而鼓勵同工們要精確地理解新約希臘文1。的確,深入了解聖經原文有助教牧同工更深入解釋聖經,幫助信徒更進深明白聖經真理。可是,作為教牧,我也曾經面對過重拾研讀聖經原文的困難:若我真的… 詳閱

褪網日後感想

雖然不完全認同明光社暨基督少年軍舉辦的褪網日,不過,實踐是驗證真理的惟一途徑,所以我也褪網了二十四小時。 二十四小時不上網對我來說是易如反掌,因為本身不擅交際,在網上本來就不多與人保持交流,所以只要預備好節目消遺便可,況且我還有很多書,很多電影未有時間看,星期六早上要去踢波,這二十四小時褪網生活無風無浪,並無出現任何吊癮徵狀。 經… 詳閱

基督不似預期:擺脫「政治彌賽亞」與「受苦(屬靈)彌賽亞」的對立二分,以理解耶穌進入耶路撒冷的任務(可十一1~11)

在教會這麼多年,筆者常常聽到類似的說法: 「耶穌並非一位政治彌賽亞,要為猶太人帶來政治解放,脫離羅馬人地上的統治。耶穌是一位屬靈的、受苦的彌賽亞,要以其受死和復活戰勝罪惡權勢,叫世人靈魂得救。」 但這真是聖經的講法嗎? 抑或,這只是我們將一些扭曲版「政教分離」,甚或一些源自希臘文化的靈肉二分思維讀入經文的結果? 我們真的沒有其他可能的… 詳閱

美國人恐懼保守基督徒的風氣

Their attitudes reflected the negativity toward Christians found in earlier research, with some particularly extreme and troubling remarks. Responding to open-ended questions, they said: “Churches and houses of religion should be designated as nuclear test zones.” “Kill them all, let their god sort them out.” “The only good Christian is… 詳閱
