民主苦路卅年-不畏崎嶇,逾越黑暗

民主苦路卅年 不畏崎嶇,逾越黑暗 由1984年中英聯合聲明的頒布,到去年2014全民覺醒,波瀾壯闊的雨傘運動,卅多年來,這條爭取民主的路,實在崎嶇難行。到了今天,我們即將面對表決政改假普選方案的時刻,更必須堅守爭取真普選的初衷,拒絕「袋住先」求主幫助我們不畏崎嶇,逾越黑暗,與祂一起共同揹負十字架在民主的路上邁步前行。 在這個混亂的時代中,我們繼… 詳閱

印度基督徒關注對宗教少數族群的攻擊

NEW DELHI (RNS) Each day, children on their way to Mount Carmel School pass through gates under the watch of armed security guards, and now city police officers who stop there on government orders after a nearby Catholic convent and school were broken into. The vandals stole money, tampered with securit… 詳閱

拒絕為LGBT族群製作蛋糕的餅店不算是被逼迫的基督徒

Every seminary student learns early on that, when it comes to the Bible, a bad interpretation leads to a bad application. But a second truth is often not emphasized: sometimes you can make a bad application from a good interpretation. I was reminded of this often-overlooked principle when I read a recen… 詳閱

美國宗教調查的真正重點不是數字,而是宗教失去社會影響力

“Religion plays a less important role in American life.” Or maybe, “Religion declines as powerful source of American public authority.” I doubt those headlines would have garnered the attention the Pew Center recently received with its subtitle “Christians Decline Sharply as Share of Population.” This is no criticism of Pew… 詳閱

與路加同讀舊約-馬歇爾教授

四福音書的作者雖然都引用舊約,但各師其法。比較路加跟其他三卷福音書引用舊約的方法,以及他在使徒行傳中表達最早期的傳道者和教師如何跟隨福音書中耶穌的典範和榜樣,能帶領參加者更深入理解和領會耶穌與他的跟隨者如何重視並善用舊約經文。 講員:馬歇爾教授 Prof. I. Howard Marshall (英國蘇格蘭亞伯丁大學新約釋經榮休教授暨榮譽研究教授) 日期:12/6/2013(週五… 詳閱

教內消息:「反對假普選 堅拒政治謊言」-一群香港基督徒聯署聲明

「反對假普選 堅拒政治謊言」 一群香港基督徒聯署聲明 我們是一群深愛香港,以這片土地為家的基督徒。面對政改爭議,香港社會陷入空前危機,我們不能置身事外;而身為基督徒,我們更理應「是就說是,不是就說不是」,本於事實,拒絕謊言。 雖然世上的確沒有所謂最完美或最民主的選舉制度,基督徒可選擇不同的政改方案,但任何具體的「真普選」方案,都不可以… 詳閱

「夾縫裡開花」-思考澳門教會的未來

最近對澳門教會的感受特別多,有一種思念與惋惜的感觸。剛好訪問了一位朋友他離開教會的原因,也談起現今教會的景況,又聽聞中國內地對宗教自由打壓得很厲害。種種思緒,令我不斷思考澳門教會的未來會是怎樣? 人們常說,基督教來澳已逾二百年,也是基督教在華發展的根源地,但不少信徒總在婉惜為何這麼長時間基督教也沒甚麼大進展?有趣的是,大部分澳門人其… 詳閱

牧者墮落的模式

During my time in seminary I took a leadership course taught by the late, great Howard Hendricks. As we studied the life of David, Hendricks shared a study he conducted with a group of men in full-time ministry who had fallen into a morally disqualifying sin. At the time, … 詳閱

啟示錄猜程尋(02) 問問我是誰 (c1:5-8)

作主門徒不需要像見工般自我介紹,卻需要介紹你主人係邊個. 打從福音書開始,耶穌給門徒既”考試”題目,就有”我係邊個?” 往後的使徒行傳,保羅書信,大公書信都不斷介紹”主係邊個?”   早前網上有人話耶穌係個卅歲一事無成,尋人滋事既死廢青. 在你認識中,主耶穌到底係乜水?佢又係你貴親呢? 你會點同人介紹佢呢?   回到啟示錄,… 詳閱
