舊約裡的敘事把暴力說成一種美善?

約伯最終明白了,我們呢?

As I have repeatedly said, I have spent a huge portion of my scholarly life wrestling with the book of Job. It began forty-five years ago in a year-long seminary class, using the Hebrew language, reading the entire book. It was an exhilarating, if at times frustrating, experience. I wa… 詳閱

美國逾九成性罪犯認為他們是信徒,亦愛在教會群體裡犯事

In one study, 93 percent of convicted sex offenders described themselves as “religious.” Perhaps surprisingly, many sexual predators consider churches as “safe havens,” Vieth said, with trusting, forgiving adults and easy access to children.

真假福音:誰之過?

最近讀了一本書《真假福音》(泰文維克斯著,袁偉、王偉成譯,台北:華訓,2015),書中主要論及福音的三個重要元素:故事、宣告、社群。這三個元素,就像一張三腳凳一樣,缺一不可。作者認為福音故事應涵蓋創造、墮落、贖回及復和四個層面,由創造到新創造,以至基督再來。而福音宣告則集中於耶穌基督的生、死、復活與主權,強調耶穌基督的道成肉身和救贖工作… 詳閱
