創世記四章26節:那時候,人才求告耶和華的名。 為甚麼亞當夫婦生了塞特,塞特又生了兒子,人才開始求告耶和華的名呢?在英文、希臘文、或其它一些語言中,名就是代表某人某物的一個發音記號而已。隨便甚麼聲音都可以作名字,這聲音和這人或物的屬性不必有甚麼連繫。在這些語言裡,稱呼張三或李四就是為了說話方便。 Moen博士在他的一篇原文默想網誌1上介紹說,… 詳閱

  2014年7月13日 | 循道衛理聯合教會香港堂青少年主日中堂講道 今天看太13章經典撒種比喻。內容講農夫耕田播種,種子落不同地方,落得對有好收成;落點不對就難搞,有被荊棘擋住,有飛鳥吃掉,也有泥土不深生唔到根。比喻重點正如耶穌解釋,天國道理像種子撒在不同土壤,有否成果在乎土壤本身,即人的態度。好土壤(接受道理)會開花結果,但更多情況是有問題:有… 詳閱
