說說為總統禱告

我們都相信上帝能夠做一切的事–甚至我們自己甚麼也不必做!近年來我開始對此有些懷疑。最早一次發現問題是我自己七、八年前的經歷: 那一次我聽見某人評論關於我的一件事,很不正確–至少我記得事情根本不像他說的那樣。我對這人說,不是那樣的,我們要不要問問在場的其他人啊?他堅決不要。但他說要為我禱告,請上帝指示我。我很不以為然,如果我記錯… 詳閱

同性「婚姻」和信仰自由

基督徒對於同性「結婚」大不以為然。我個人覺得,只要是一對一的關係,讓他們享受與婚姻同等的法律權利是應該的。至於非要稱那為「婚姻」,或許我們只好接受,文化是演變的,婚姻的定義、字的涵義也難免隨著改變? Civil union有人翻譯成「民事結合」,在法律上有些像加拿大的common-law marriage–不算進入婚姻,但是得到法律承認的性關係。但是,同性戀者不願意只… 詳閱

處境查經:無懼權勢,重拾尊嚴

文憑課程最後一課,同學討論棕樹主日經文,從古人「國際時評」談到香港和世界。 1) 以賽亞書50:4-9上:立足本族,胸懷國際 這段經文與以賽亞書42:1-4、49:1-6及52:13-53:12同被列作「僕人之歌」,描述上主所揀選的人有獨特使命及遭遇。在賽50:4-9上,作者以第一身形容僕人如何接受上主教導,堅定地面對外間挑戰,甚至主動吃苦。 同學認為經文較觸動他們是「受教」(4節)、「… 詳閱

Hobby Lobby 的滑坡會停在哪裡?

The reason it’s unlikely the Supreme Court would uphold a religious exemption for vaccinations or blood transfusions is not something intrinsic to those claims; it’s simply that Alito finds them weird. Birth control is banned by the Bible? Sure. Blood transfusions are banned by the Bible? Don’t be silly. Fo… 詳閱

美國長老教會議決認定同性婚姻為合符基督教

The amendment approved Thursday by the Presbyterian General Assembly requires approval from a majority of the 172 regional presbyteries, which will vote on the change over the next year. But in a separate policy change that takes effect at the end of this week’s meeting, delegates voted to allow minister… 詳閱

What Do Protestants Think of Pope Francis?

…Of all U.S. adults surveyed, 62% say they are somewhat or very familiar with the pontiff. Not surprisingly, Catholics take the lead at 99%. Among practicing Protestants, 58% say they have a working familiarity with the pope. Second to Pope Francis is Billy Graham, the famed evangelist who has bee… 詳閱
