謹以此文獻給我的母親--洪蔡錦淑女士
原戴西雅圖「井水」
親愛的爸爸
原諒孩子近幾年來把您擱置在記憶的櫥窗裡,為的是想淡忘那些心酸的回憶,沒想到在同鄉會租的賞月遊艇上,媽媽竟不期邂逅了您生前的好友何伯伯(何武德伯伯),於是孩子塵封多時的記憶,又一幕幕地歷歷展現在眼前。
雖然我也相信您是去了一個好得無比的地方與耶穌同在,因為您生前篤信基督,然而小小的腦袋裡也難免裝滿了許多的疑惑與問號。記不得,有多少次,我呆呆地望著那遙遠的白雲,追問您的去處;有時我也人云亦云地,以為也許真是海龍王把您捉去了,因此多少夢裡,我更是歷盡千辛萬苦地到海底宮,向龍王討您回來。夢醒時卻是熱淚盈眶; 女兒也曾真摯地祈求父神讓我見您一面。終於有一次您出現在孩子的床頭, 輕輕地對我說: 「孩子你真乖! 」我伸手想緊緊地抓住您,再也不讓您離開,那知忽地! 您又不見了!
我還記得很清楚,有一次一位泥水匠到外公家做修護零工,閒聊中問起我的身世,我告訴他,我是遣腹子,爸爸在二次大戰末被徵召當軍醫,船被炸沉,一去不復返。他對我說:「也許你爸爸還活在某一個島嶼上呢,就像某某人失蹤了二十多年才回家。」當時我興奮地跑去告訴媽,真以為您還在人間,讓我小小的心靈滿懷希望地高興了好幾個禮拜。前年,有位二次大戰時的日本兵由深山叢林重新回到文明世界,我禁不住地幻想著,若是那人是我爸爸的話,不知有多好!
爸爸!雖然您年紀輕輕就離我們而去,而且死得相當冤枉;因為您是軍節節敗退聲中,被送去當砲灰的,這是生為台灣人的悲哀,據說,您坐的船「神靖」非但沒按照規定安放紅十字徵章,而且有人生病,日軍亦不給藥,任憑屍橫遍船,醫生根本派不上用場,我真不知道日本送了整船的台灣醫生出去,到底是為什麼?
然而您一生的孝行,您為人的坦誠及充滿愛心,一直留在許多人的記憶裡,撇開媽對您的思念及對您們倆短短六年共同生活無限甜蜜的的回憶不說,就是大表哥,前不久路過西市,也無限回憶地對我說:「你爸爸人真好,我小時調皮搗蛋闖了禍,你爸爸不像其他大人一樣地厲聲厲色,乃是好言相勸,令我很感動,印象也很深刻。」您走時哥哥才二歲多,他對您的微薄印象亦是如此。有時說了難聽的粗話,您輕輕地叫他下次不可再說。在您的年代,能不擺大人的架子,不以傅統的父親尊嚴去管制小孩,而能體貼、看重小孩的心理及感覺再加以輔導,可說是非常難能可貴的!
爸爸!孩子為您感到驕傲,因為您非但活在我們心中,也活在所有認識您的親友心中。更難得的是在您去世將近三十年,卻仍有朋友為您流淚,淚沾衣衫。原來當晚,媽由一位陌生人的名條,而發現失去聯絡多年的何伯伯時,哥哥並不在場,於是隔天下午我們特地帶何伯伯去看哥哥,剛一見面,何伯伯就很衝動,口中唸唸有詞地直說哥哥太像您了。到了晚上,哥哥單獨帶他去參觀他的店時,何伯伯再也忍不住,上前擁抱哥哥,淚如泉湧,何伯伯事後告訴我們,他深覺您在天之靈特地趕來與相會,令他不能自己地灑下熱淚,這一幕將令哥哥畢生難忘,也令我聽了為之心酸不已。
雖然,您去世後,我們搬回南部媽的娘家,就與何伯伯失去聯絡,然而我們很快地在媽那發黃的婚照上找到昔日瀟酒的何伯伯,他就站在您與媽的背後,媽且告訴我,您出征以前在台中車站,因別情依依,只顧與何伯伯話別,竟讓二大皮箱的好東西悄悄地給人提走了。因何伯伯,伯母趕著去加州照顧兒媳生產,因此我們與他在一起的時間並不多,但我卻像挖寶似的想由他的口中得到一些您生前的往事,同時我也向他傾訴從小對您極強烈的孺慕之思,如何由媽和親友的敘述,以及您留下的許多照片裡去獲得您生前的片羽鱗爪,企圖在我心中堆砌一尊父親的塑像。
談著談著,我的眼淚不禁在眼眶裡打轉, 終於我用顫抖卻是有把握的聲音,對何伯伯說:「何伯伯,雖然我爸爸的去世是我們家的大悲劇,就殘酷的戰爭帶給許多家庭的悲劇一樣;雖然我無法明白神為什麼讓這樣的不幸臨到愛祂的人身上,然而我深信,有一天我們會與他相見,有一天我們將在天上團聚,盼您也能相信耶穌,在基督裡得這上好的福份,就是永遠的生命,這樣,您與爸必真能重逢了。」
爸爸!相信您在天上會微笑地同意我的看法,因為死雖然奪去了人一切的幸福、希望,奪去我們心愛的人; 然而感謝主,基督耶穌已經勝過死亡的權勢, 由死裡復活;我們因 就有同樣的盼望,有一天 神會擦乾我們所有的眼淚.因為地上所有的憂傷, 天上都能醫治。孩子渴望著見您面的那一天,願神保守我們直到我們相見。

從事改變人格的行業

有一天, 有一個牧師, 穿了一條很舒服的, 舊的藍色牛仔褲, 坐飛機要回家.
他坐在最後一
空位, 鄰座坐了一位衣冠楚楚的紳士, 腋下挾著一份
爾街日報.位牧師對自己穿著的隨便有些尷尬,不打算與他有任何
, 所以晴朝前直看.不料, 那人竟跟他打起招呼, 於是他只好禮貌上問起
那人的工作來
. 就那樣他倆展開了談話:

"我是做美化身材的事業.我們可以改變一個女人身材而
讓她對自己的觀感全然改
. 真是很厲害, 很不得了的行業!"
不可言喻的得意與傲氣洋
於他的眉宇之間.

"你看起與我同年齡” (牧師), “你做這行業很久了?"

"我剛從支加哥大學的商學系畢業.他們已經給我很重大的
, 我感覺很榮幸.事實上, 我希望最後能夠經營西部的作."

", 你們是一個全國性的機構?” 我問, 不由自己地加
了對他的印象
.

"是的, 我們是我們一行發展最快的公司.你不覺得成為
樣的機構的一員是何等地好
?"

我同意地點點頭.

他猜疑地看看我的衣著.不免起我來, “你做甚麼行業?

“真巧, 相同興趣,”我說"你是在從事改變身材的
行業
,我是在從事改變人的行.我們應用基本神權則來成就
特別的
性修改.

他被震住了.但是我知他不會承認, 在做祟.

", 我略曾."他猶疑地回答說.”但是,城市,可有
你們的公司
?

".的分公司多的是呢.遍佈州南,州北.事實上,我捫
是全國性的
:我們至少每一州有一個分公司,包括阿垃斯加以及夏威夷.

他面帶疑惑.心裡在猜測是那一大公司.他必定曾經在那
看過或聽過,有可能在他的華爾街日報呢.

"事實上.我們已經打入國際市.企管部有一個計畫,
商季結束以前
.在全世界每一國家分設一個支店."

我停了一下,反問他,
"你們的事業可有那麼大?

", 還沒有.”他回答說."但是.你提到企管部.他們如何
這麼大的事業的
?"

"是家庭事業. 有一對父子...他們營一切."

"他們一定有本錢?” 他很懷疑地.

"你是?”我問,"是的, 錢多得很, 沒人知道有多少錢. 不過
我們的老闆總是有錢, 從不缺錢.他很有創造性, 錢總是在那裡.事實
, 我們公司的人有一句話形容老闆,” 千山上的羊都屬於他."

",他也經營蓄牧?"

我的朋友在座椅上.向後一坐, 沉思我們的談話. ”你呢?”他.

"員工們嗎? 真是不簡,我說,他們有一個Spirit (精神)
貫穿整個的組
.單說來, 樣的,父愛子, 子愛父, 他們的愛強烈
地感動我們
, 以至於我們員工也都此相愛. 我知在我們現今的世界,
這像是過時的說法
. 但是我知在我們的機構裡有人肯為我死. 你的呢?"
現在
, 我提高嗓門, 幾乎像在喊叫.人們開始在他們的座位上蠹勳起來.

", 還沒."他說, 趕快轉話題, 他又說 ”但是,你們可有好的福利?"

"我們的福利相當地好."我回報以一笑,"我有完整的人壽保險,
火險
--所有基本的保險我都有.你可能不相信, 但是這是真的:
就是現在
, 他們正在為我建築退休以後我要住的大廈,你可有這種福利?

", 還沒,” 他沉思地回答道. 他開始若有所悟.
"你知道嗎? 你所說的一切都很好, 只是有一事困擾我. 所有的
商報
.雜誌我都看, 如果你的公司果真如你所說的那麼好, 為甚麼直到如今,
我從未聽說過
.?"

"這是個好問題,” 我說, “畢竟, 我們有二千年的傳統啊.

"等一下!"他說.

"你猜到了?” 我打斷他的話, 插嘴地說."沒錯,我是在談教會.

"我料到了. 你知道麼? 我是猶太人.

"要不要參加我們公司? 我問他.

我是否失去我的腦袋 ?

By Chris Hansen --BH譯--

我有一個朋友,他很擔心我是否失去我的腦袋 ?

有一個晚上,他來看我,他對我說

「我知你跟隨耶穌;你的信仰很堅固。

不過,我想你已經失去你的理智!

你怎麼會這麼糊塗,錯誤的這麼厲害?

你怎麼會跟從耶穌,明明知道已經死了?」

「因為已經復活!!」我安靜地回答他。

「死人不會再復活」,他說,「這是不可能,

祂騙那一個世代的人,現在祂也在欺騙你,

當他們放祂在墳墓裏的時候,大概

祂被藥物麻醉或是失去祂的意識,

然後,不知怎樣地卻又醒過來啦,我認為就是這麼一回事。」

我很驚奇地對他說,「祂該怎麼樣做呢?難道說

祂鬆開沈重的裹屍布,一片一片的解開?

祂用那雙相當受重傷的手,推開了很重的石頭?

祂的手腳以及肋旁雖然受重傷,卻打倒所有看守的守衛?

祂肋旁的傷提醒我們一項重要的事實;

祂實在已經死去,不然祂的肋旁不會流出血和水,

只有死亡會使血液裏的血和水(血清)分開。

在兵丁用矛扎祂的肋旁以前,祂已經死了好一陣子。

甚至如果祂真的醒過來,逃走並制伏眾守衛的兵丁,

而且帶著重傷,遍體鱗傷地走了好多英里路,

光是這些也值得我們好好地,仔細地去想想啦,

光是這些也足夠讓我們折服在祂所從事的拯救人類大使命啦。」

我的朋友大叫,「這回算你贏,但是我還是有話要說,

固然你堅信不疑耶穌確實是死去,難道沒有其他的可能性嗎?

也許在守衛到達以先,祂的屍體就被人偷走了。

這樣,空的墳墓足以讓其他的人相信祂已經復活!」

「一個空的墳墓是不夠的,」我很快地對他說,

「除非祂仍舊在墳墓裏死死地躺在那裏,他們不會封祂的墳墓。」

「讓我猜猜看,你會再說些什麼?

守衛們在睡覺的時候,他們偷走他的屍體,屍體就這樣不見了。

這麼大的石頭被滾開,一定很吵鬧,然而守衛們通通在睡覺?

在這些大亂及大響聲中,竟然沒有一個守衛哼一聲?

「況且單單一個偷來的屍體不會讓人產生那麼大的熱心及信心,

主耶穌必定活的好好的,祂必定相當真實地顯現給他們看。

因為人們不會為了欺騙別人來喪失自己的生命。

他們不會為了連他們自己都不能真正相信的事情來死。

也許你能夠找到一、二個人,能夠那麼崇高地,不顧一切地,

為了某一個理念來犧牲他們自己的生命。

但是要十二個人,甚至幾百個人都能如此做,你知道那是萬萬不可能的。」

懷疑者說,「我了解你的觀點,不過,也許他們看到祂復活

只因為他們的眼睛讓他們迷茫的心給欺騙了,也許那只不過是一個傳奇的故事而已!!」

我回答他說,「你的邏輯在這兒可行不通了,

五百人說他們看見復活的主,這是真實的事情而不是個故事。

一、二個人的心也許會發生錯亂,看見他們想看的事、物,

然而五百個人的眼睛同一時間看見同一個幻象是不可能的。

基督的名字確實曾在歷史上出現;祂並非只是一篇愉快的散文,

有人說祂有一個雙生的兄弟,用此來解釋祂的復活。

然而祂的這個雙生兄弟卻從來不曾有人提過,甚至祂的敵人也不曾提到過。

所以只剩下一個可能性就是基督真正復活了!!

這不是一個小說,也不是個幻象,更不是個騙局或虛假。」

我的朋友想了一下或兩下,

叫我感到非常地驚奇,他說,「我想這必定是真的!

耶穌真正死而復活,讓我可以相信。祂真正勝過死亡而且永遠活著,

讓我不必再悲傷。我真巴不得早些知道,早些看到這個復活的真理。」

「不必擔心,我的朋友,」我說,

「我也是經過別人的指點才知道的。」

在基督裏,現在我們就是兄弟啦,

不必不再怕死亡,也不必再懷疑了。

他要我們告訴別人,我們已經發現的真理,但望在我們人生的盡頭,

當我們見主面的時,主會稱讚我們說,

「好又盡忠的僕人...

The Dawkins Delusion?

THE DAWKINS DELUSION?


Review by Rumple (Scotland)
I strongly recommend this book to Christians who have been unsettled by the propaganda that Richard Dawkins has been putting out. It is a very important response, though sadly the impressive rebuttal won’t achieve a fraction of the publicity that the falsehoods have got.
McGrath demolishes Dawkins’ arguments, or rather he demonstrates that his arguments don’t justify his conclusions. It’s not a question of McGrath proving that there is a God, or Dawkins proving that there isn’t. Dawkins’ important and fallacious arguments are that there are no grounds for intelligent people to disagree with him, and McGrath demonstrates that that is an untenable position. However, McGrath has done it before, and the usual reaction has been “well, there isn’t a God anyway”, or “Christianity is based on lies, so Christians can’t complain if other people are less than fair and accurate about them”. This is evident in many of the reviews of this book; “so what about the merits of Dawkins’ arguments. It doesn’t matter, because there is no God”.
Even if there is no God, I can’t see how it justifies dishonesty in support of the point, and McGrath nails Dawkins squarely on the charge of intellectual dishonesty. The book is a reasoned defence of religion, and Christianity in particular against the attacks from Dawkins that it is impossible to be rational, and good, and Christian. It is not meant to be an argument for the existence of God.
Yes, the book is meant to bolster the faithful. Many will have been dismayed and concerned by the ready acceptance in the media that the God Delusion is an important and respectable contribution to the debate about religion, whereas it is really nothing more than a one-sided, dishonest polemic.
McGrath exposes Dawkins spectacular arrogance, showing how he strays over into areas in which he has no expertise, such as anthropology, sociology, philosophy and psychology. He ignores the accumulated wisdom of these disciplines, and attempts to reason his way through from scratch.
Of course, Dawkins does the same with theology but he does have a ready answer in that case; that theology is a non-subject, and such patent nonsense that he does not need to waste his time understanding the details in order to dismiss it in its entirety. That stance would be reasonable for a pub argument, but it is ludicrous from someone who is actually writing books on the subject, and it is deplorable from someone who makes a healthy living as a self-appointed “expert” on religion. The God Delusion contains theological statements that are breathtakingly wrong. Dawkins cannot expect to be taken seriously as a writer on religion if he cannot be bothered establishing what it is that he is attacking.

頑猴與太空


許多生物教科書都告訴我們,猴子是我們的祖先。怪的是,直到今日, 我們還看得見猴子。為什麼呢?開玩笑的答案,乃是有些猴子頑固地運 用它們的自由意志來決定不要進化,仍然一直願意當猴子到底,不 願變成人。

一隻猴子若不小心,跌進一桶紅色的油漆,爬出來後,可能坐在油漆工留在地上的布上,一會兒的工夫,我們也許可有一幅美麗的抽象畫,活像大幅情人節卡片也說不定。如果有人惡作劇,請各派的心理學家,畫家來解釋該圖,我們可就有得聽啦。不管如何,猴子也許甚至能夠模仿人拿起真正的筆來畫畫。它們也許可以打字打的很快,可是它們能夠寫出莎氏比亞的劇本麼?進化論要我們相信,如果給予百萬年以上的時間的話,猴子就能僅憑機遇性的排列組合湊出莎翁劇本來

真是這樣麼?許多動物雖然很聰明伶俐,但是卻不曾見過它們做與它們老祖宗不同的事。比方說,它們建的巢穴雖然很精致卻世世代代都千篇一律,永遠是一個老樣子,例如蜜蜂永遠築六角形的蜂房,卻不見它們築八角形的。海狸也一樣,總是蓋同樣的水中屋。反過來說,人類卻老早就離開山頂洞了,且建築各式各樣的房子及工具。只有人類日新月異,充滿創新的能力,顯然是很獨特地被造
(Man was created in the image of God)

幾年前,在新聞週刊George Wills登過一文"科學的福音"'Hubble,全球最大的望遠鏡, 繼續不斷地由太空送來許多信息。我們越來越感驚奇,因為知道許多因素使得生命因巧合而存在的可能性微乎其微簡直不可能。想想看,如果大爆炸稍微較不夠強烈,則宇宙的澎脹率就不夠快,很快地它本身就會自己垮了下來,而收縮回去。如果大爆炸稍微較強烈,則宇宙會稀釋成湯而無法混凝成星球。在大爆炸時,物質能量與空間體積的比率必需非常地準確,絲毫差錯不得,只能差理想的百分之一準確度裏的千兆分之一,否則就沒有宇宙,當然更無生命可言了。

一位理論太空物理學家
Abraham Loeb "忽然間,整個宇宙就像聖誕樹一樣地亮起來。'如何呢?'是個有趣的問題,'為什麼呢?'更是一個非常有趣的問題。

1920
年代末期,太空科學就認為許多靠近我們的銀河星系都以百萬哩的時速競相離地球及其他星球而去這個事實以及整個宇宙皆浸浴於輻射能當中,像是在告訴我們,物質與動力乃源於無,就像創世記所說,由無生有,在一片巨大的光與能的爆炸中誕生。

Gregg Eastbrook
在他的新書 "安靜的水邊:在懷疑的世代中尋求意義"
"生命的存在是這麼的不可思議!它必定是某一個 '第一因 '所恩眷。"AQUINAS "'第一因"就是人人所說的上帝的名字"。正如聖經所說:"諸天述說神的榮耀,穹蒼傳揚祂的手段"(詩篇 191

Is There a God?

Is There a God?
Does God exist? Is there proof of God? The following offers candid, straight-forward reasons to believe in the existence of God...

existence of God

By Marilyn Adamson

Just once wouldn't you love for someone to simply show you the evidence for God's existence? No arm-twisting. No statements of, "You just have to believe." Well, here is an attempt to candidly offer some of the reasons which suggest that God exists.

But first consider this. If a person opposes even the possibility of there being a God, then any evidence can be rationalized or explained away. It is like if someone refuses to believe that people have walked on the moon, then no amount of information is going to change their thinking. Photographs of astronauts walking on the moon, interviews with the astronauts, moon rocks...all the evidence would be worthless, because the person has already concluded that people cannot go to the moon.

When it comes to the possibility of God's existence, the Bible says that there are people who have seen sufficient evidence, but they have suppressed the truth about God.1 On the other hand, for those who want to know God if he is there, he says, "You will seek me and find me; when you seek me with all your heart, I will be found by you."2 Before you look at the facts surrounding God's existence, ask yourself, If God does exist, would I want to know him? Here then, are some reasons to consider...

B

1. Does God exist? The complexity of our planet points to a deliberate Designer who not only created our universe, but sustains it today

...2. Does God exist? The human brain's complexity shows a higher intelligence behind it

...3. Does God exist? "Chance" or "natural causes" are insufficient explanations

...4. Does God exist? To state with certainty that there is no God, a person has to ignore the passion of an enormously vast number of people who are convinced that there is a God....5. Does God exist? We know God exists because He pursues us. He is constantly initiating and seeking for us to come to Him.

I was an atheist at one time. And like most atheists, the issue of people believing in God bothered me greatly. What is it about atheists that we would spend so much time, attention, and energy refuting something that we don't believe even exists?! What causes us to do that? When I was an atheist, I attributed my intentions as caring for those poor, delusional people...to help them realize their hope was completely ill-founded. To be honest, I also had another motive. As I challenged those who believed in God, I was deeply curious to see if they could convince me otherwise. Part of my quest was to become free from the question of God. If I could conclusively prove to believers that they were wrong, then the issue is off the table, and I would be free to go about my life.

proof of GodI didn't realize that the reason the topic of God weighed so heavily on my mind, was because God was pressing the issue. I have come to find out that God wants to be known. He created us with the intention that we would know him. He has surrounded us with evidence of himself and he keeps the question of his existence squarely before us. It was as if I couldn't escape thinking about the possibility of God. In fact, the day I chose to acknowledge God's existence, my prayer began with, "Ok, you win..." It might be that the underlying reason atheists are bothered by people believing in God is because God is actively pursuing them.

I am not the only one who has experienced this. Malcolm Muggeridge, socialist and philosophical author, wrote, "I had a notion that somehow, besides questing, I was being pursued." C.S. Lewis said he remembered, "...night after night, feeling whenever my mind lifted even for a second from my work, the steady, unrelenting approach of Him whom I so earnestly desired not to meet. I gave in, and admitted that God was God, and knelt and prayed: perhaps, that night, the most dejected and reluctant convert in all of England."

Lewis went on to write a book titled, "Surprised by Joy" as a result of knowing God. I too had no expectations other than rightfully admitting God's existence. Yet over the following several months, I became amazed by his love for me.

6. Does God exist? Unlike any other revelation of God, Jesus Christ is the clearest, most specific picture of God pursuing us.

Why Jesus? Look throughout the major world religions and you'll find that Buddha, Muhammad, Confucius and Moses all identified themselves as teachers or prophets. None of them ever claimed to be equal to God. Surprisingly, Jesus did. That is what sets Jesus apart from all the others. He said God exists and you're looking at him. Though he talked about his Father in heaven, it was not from the position of separation, but of very close union, unique to all humankind. Jesus said that anyone who had seen Him had seen the Father, anyone who believed in him, believed in the Father.

He said, "I am the light of the world, he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."8 He claimed attributes belonging only to God: to be able to forgive people of their sin, free them from habits of sin, give people a more abundant life and give them eternal life in heaven. Unlike other teachers who focused people on their words, Jesus pointed people to himself. He did not say, "follow my words and you will find truth." He said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father but through me."9

What proof did Jesus give for claiming to be divine? He did what people can't do. Jesus performed miracles. He healed people...blind, crippled, deaf, even raised a couple of people from the dead. He had power over objects...created food out of thin air, enough to feed crowds of several thousand people. He performed miracles over nature...walked on top of a lake, commanding a raging storm to stop for some friends. People everywhere followed Jesus, because he constantly met their needs, doing the miraculous. He said if you do not want to believe what I'm telling you, you should at least believe in me based on the miracles you're seeing.10

Jesus Christ showed God to be gentle, loving, aware of our self-centeredness and shortcomings, yet deeply wanting a relationship with us. Jesus revealed that although God views us as sinners, worthy of his punishment, his love for us ruled and God came up with a different plan. God himself took on the form of man and accepted the punishment for our sin on our behalf. Sounds ludicrous? Perhaps, but many loving fathers would gladly trade places with their child in a cancer ward if they could. The Bible says that the reason we would love God is because he first loved us.

Jesus died in our place so we could be forgiven. Of all the religions known to humanity, only through Jesus will you see God reaching toward humanity, providing a way for us to have a relationship with him. Jesus proves a divine heart of love, meeting our needs, drawing us to himself. Because of Jesus' death and resurrection, he offers us a new life today. We can be forgiven, fully accepted by God and genuinely loved by God. He says, "I have loved you with an everlasting love, therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you."11 This is God, in action.

Does God exist? If you want to know, investigate Jesus Christ. We're told that "God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."12

God does not force us to believe in him, though he could. Instead, he has provided sufficient proof of his existence for us to willingly respond to him. The earth's perfect distance from the sun, the unique chemical properties of water, the human brain, DNA, the number of people who attest to knowing God, the gnawing in our hearts and minds to determine if God is there, the willingness for God to be known through Jesus Christ. If you need to know more about Jesus and reasons to believe in him, please see: Beyond Blind Faith.

If you want to begin a relationship with God now, you can.

This is your decision, no coercion here. But if you want to be forgiven by God and come into a relationship with him, you can do so right now by asking him to forgive you and come into your life. Jesus said, "Behold, I stand at the door [of your heart] and knock. He who hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into him [or her]."13 If you want to do this, but aren't sure how to put it into words, this may help: "Jesus, thank you for dying for my sins. You know my life and that I need to be forgiven. I ask you to forgive me right now and come into my life. I want to know you in a real way. Come into my life now. Thank you that you wanted a relationship with me. Amen."

God views your relationship with him as permanent. Referring to all those who believe in him, Jesus Christ said of us, "I know them, and they follow me; and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand."14

So, does God exist? Looking at all these facts, one can conclude that a loving God does exist and can be known in an intimate, personal way. If you need more information about Jesus' claim to divinity, or about God's existence, or if you have similar important questions, please email us.

Fabricating Jesus

FABRICATING JESUS


Review by Craig Blomberg.

Craig Evans, the Payzant Distinguished Professor of New Testament at Acadia Divinity School in Nova Scotia, is one of the foremost evangelical New Testament scholars in our world today. Regularly interviewed for major network documentaries and author of countless articles and several fine monographs, particularly in the area of historical Jesus studies, Evans here makes a huge amount of complicated and controversial material understandable and readily accessible to the educated layperson and introductory theological student.

Evans’ main objective throughout this concise volume is to debunk the claims of radical, unrepresentative scholarship about Jesus and the Gospels. Chapters 1-10 each treat, in turn, scholarly cul de sacs and carefully explain why these dead ends develop. Chapter 11 then helps the reader piece together the true insights that have emerged from each previous chapter and more systematically addresses who the real Jesus was.

Chapter 1 points out how C. S. Lewis’ famous “liar, lunatic or Lord” triad of options excludes at least two main approaches of contemporary skeptics–those who see him as a prophet, sage or other significant historical figure because they sift through the Gospels to find a smaller core of truly authentic material and those who portray him as quite different from historic Christian claims because they reject all or nearly all of the canonical accounts as reliable. Using the published autobiographical reflections of Robert Funk and James Robinson to illustrate the first category of skepticism, and of Robert Price and Bart Ehrman as examples of the second, Evans highlights one recurrent problem–the all-or-nothing approach that leads some people to think that, if they cannot accept strict biblical inerrancy or harmonize every last detail in the Gospels, they must reject most or all of them (a mistake, I might add, sadly perpetuated by many very conservative evangelicals, too, who thus unwittingly send more hesitant skeptics over the edge).

Chapter 2 addresses the need for having valid criteria of authenticity in order to determine if the main contours of the Synoptic tradition of Jesus are indeed trustworthy. Evans believes that such standard historical criteria as that which is multiply attested, fits an early first-century Palestinian environment, would have proved embarrassing to the early church, or coheres with material authenticated by other reliable criteria, and so on, are the right tools for the task.

Evans next devotes two chapters to later extra-canonical “Christian” texts that paint a dramatically different picture of Jesus than the canonical Gospels present. Spending an entire chapter on the well-known Gospel of Thomas, and a second on the Gospel of Peter, Papyrus Egerton, the Gospel of Mary and the so-called Secret Gospel of Mark, Evans provides solid reasons for viewing all of these as no earlier than second century in origin and rarely, if ever, preserving reliable information about Jesus of any kind, much less data that should be viewed as more reliable than that found in Matthew, Mark, Luke or John. The one anomaly is Secret Mark, which is, in all probability, not an ancient document at all but entirely a modern hoax perpetrated by Morton Smith, as several recent studies have virtually conclusively demonstrated.

God is not mocked!

http://funp.com/t154095&via=tools#p=154095

As we go about our daily lives, the world continues to deteriorate speedily…increasing in confusion. The evils surrounding us are incomprehensible. Not a day passes without the media exposing another example of the horrible, degenerate state of modern man’s mind.

There are murders of whole families, and there are spouses killing spouses, and children killing their parents. Even classmates are shooting each other. Selfish ambition and greed are escalating out of control, prompting business-class men…holding titles of high esteem…to steal vast amounts of money from the clientele who trusted them. These are only a few of the evils plaguing our society.

Recently, the possible nuclear war with Iran hung like a shroud over our heads, while another disaster now looms large…an economic recession/depression that is threatening the economies of the world. Also, does anyone want another satellite launched that may someday need to be shot down as it crashes back to earth with its lethal contents ready to spill all over us? God says the wisdom of man is foolishness to Him…1 COR. 3:19 “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”. God is watching us. God is not mocked.

Right now, the world scoffs at the existence of God: 2 Peter 3:3…”Knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days walking according to their own lusts.” Vs 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of HIS coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”

To mock is to ridicule, make fun of, tease or taunt. To thumb one’s nose at the Great Creator God is no laughing matter…..Proverbs15:3 says …. “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good”. We are not alone!

And Jeremiah 16:17 says: “For My eyes are on all their ways: they are not hidden from My eyes.” God’s eyes scan to and fro…throughout the whole earth, constantly watching, constantly monitoring his creation (Zechariah 4:10).

God is in complete control. As the days pass, which may seem long and very trying, especially for people who seek to do God’s will, we are assured that God will repay man for his wickedness and bring it to an end. King David wrote in Psalm 37:9 “…..evildoers shall be cut off; But those who wait on the LORD, they shall inherit the earth, Vs. 10, for yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more…”

God doesn’t count time like we do. The time from David until now has seemed like only a short time to Him. We know in 2nd Peter 3:8 it says that, “one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day to God”. But we also know from this that God is counting the time. There is a day of reckoning coming.

Isaiah 47:10 explains the mindset and destiny of this evil world… “For you have trusted in your own wickedness. You have said, no one sees me. Your wisdom and your knowledge have led you astray. And have said in your heart I am and there is no one else besides me”….Vs. 14 “Behold, they shall be as stubble, the fire shall burn them, they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame….see also Malachi 4:1.

In conclusion, to mock God is a terrible offense. We forget the all-powerful God is only patient, not weak. The abuse that has been heaped on Him will come back powerfully on mankind until such foolishness is completely repented of. GOD IS WATCHING EVERYTHING. The wicked shall have their reward… But, until then, unfortunately, they will continue to prosper in their ways.

Let’s be sure that we aren’t mocking HIM. Stand fast for His truth and wait patiently for His recompense. Remember Galatians 6:7, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked, for whatever a mans sows, that he will also reap.”

What Happens After Death?

http://www.answertheskeptic.com/index.php/what-happens-after-death/2008/04/04


For the entire existence of mankind, we have struggled with the question, “What happens after death?” Our answer to this dilemma has great implications for our life here on earth. Although many avoid the issue, we must sooner or later address the question. There are many competing answers to this question.

Atheists believe that at death one ceases to exist. There is no afterlife or eternal soul that continues in eternity. All there is to look forward to is our inevitable death, the future death of mankind, and the universe. It is in the face of this future that the atheist must seek to find meaning and purpose for his own existence.

The Eastern and New Age religions that hold to a pantheistic worldview teach that one goes through an endless cycle of reincarnation until the cycle is broken and the person becomes one with the divine. What form a person becomes in the next life depends on the quality of life lived in the previous life. When one unites with the divine, he ceases to exist as an individual, but becomes part of the divine life force, like a drop of water returning to the ocean.

Those who hold to the animistic or tribal religions believe that after death the human soul remains on the earth or travels to join the departed spirits of the ancestors in the underworld, also called the realm of the shadows. For eternity they wander in darkness, experiencing neither joy nor sorrow. Some of the spirits of the deceased may be called upon to aid or torment those on earth.

Islam teaches that at the end of history, God will judge the works of all men. Those whose good deeds outweigh their bad deeds will enter into paradise. The rest will be consigned to hell. The Koran teaches that in paradise men will be drinking wine and entertained by heavenly maidens and that they may take several of these maidens for their wives.

Most worldviews must accept their belief in the afterlife on untested faith, but the Christian hope is sure for two reasons; the resurrection of Christ and the testimony of God’s Word. The Bible gives us the true view of what happens after death. However, many Christians have a misunderstanding of the afterlife. Some believe that they become one of the angels, others believe they go into a state of “soul sleep,” while others believe they will be floating on clouds playing harps. In this article, we will examine some popular misconceptions of what lies beyond the grave and perceive what the Bible teaches.

Christians can be assured that death is not something to be feared. Instead, at death we arrive home in heaven. To live means we exist in a foreign country. Death has lost its sting and now is a victory through the resurrection of Jesus our Lord.

If I Had Only 2 Dimensions

Dear friend, think about this, if I had only 2 dimensions as a flatlander, how could you introduce you to me as a 3 dimensional person? ( If I don't have the sense to perceive 3 dimensions, how can you make me understand that you have that extra dimension I don't have?) Well perhaps I could start to look at the shadows you project on the ground and wonder the mystery of you whose shapes change all the times and all a sudden your shadows disappear in the darkness too. I would wonder if you exist or not? What kind of a mysterious guy you are? ...etc. Even if I think so hard almost punching a hole in my brain I couldn't figure you out. Worst of all, if there is no light then I don’t think you exist at all.

I hope this analogy reminds you how tough for one to get into extra dimension he/she doesn't have, let alone spiritual dimension. For example, carps in the pond wouldn't understand our normal world beyond their watery world.

Actually if you could speak flatlanders’ language then you could describe yourself to them and your voice would make them aware of your existence, right? However, your self descriptions may still sound unbelievable to them. The best way seems that if you could become a flatlander yourself and speak their languages then there is possibility that they may come to know the true you. (well still partially since now you have stripped one dimension off yourself.) Nevertheless, it is still tough job for you to let flatlanders know the true you.

Somehow that explains the incarnation of Jesus-- He became a human being to reveal to us the invisible God. Do all these make sense to you now? It is hard for us to imagine 4th, 5th dimensions, not to mention infinite dimensions and spiritual dimension that only God can bring us into. That was why Jesus told an old intelligent man Nicodemus that he has to be born again( in spirit ) in order to see God's kingdom.

notes: After I wrote the above essay, I do come to realize my own blind spots in the analogy. Because if I were a flatlander, I probably wouldn't have eyes to see or ears to hear because all these organs are 3 dimensional. I was very limited to only able to think 3 dimensionally even when I was trying to imagine if I only had 2 dimensions. The flatlanders are doomed not able to figure out 3 dimensional world or persons. The best way is to add a 3rd dimension to the flatlander then he/she would simply understand the reality of 3 dimensional world. That is exactly what the Holy Spirit has done to open up a spiritual dimension for us to understand and see God's kingdom. ( If only one repents and believes in Jesus as his/her own personal Savior then the Holy Spirit will indwell in that person and restore his/her lost spiritual dimension.) Please excuse me, dear friend, after all an analogy is only an analogy, we couldn't push every details to match every part of the analogy or else it will certainly fall apart.

C.S. Lewis: A Short Introduction
By Philip Vander Elst

The analogy Lewis used to explain the Trinity was that of the cube:

On the human level one person is one being, and any two persons are two separate beings - just as, in two dimensions (say on a flat sheet of paper) one square is one-figure and any two squares we two separate figures. On the Divine level you still find personalities, but up there you find them combined in new ways which we, who do not live on that level cannot imagine. In God's dimension, so to speak, you find a being who is three Persons while remaining one Being, just as a cube is six squares while remaining one cube. Of course we cannot fully conceive a Being like that: just as, if we were so made that we perceived only two dimensions in space we could never properly imagine a cube. But we can get a sort of faint notion of it. (Mere Christianity, pp. 138-9)

...Thus we see that the Trinitarian conception of God is not some fantastic piece of theological gobbledegook dreamed up by the early Church, but a perfectly rational formulation about the Divine nature based on revelation (mainly but not solely through and in relation to Christ) but also appealing to reason, since it shows how God can be self-existent Love and therefore the source of human love. ( Philip Vander Elst)

…There is no good complaining that these statements are difficult. Christianity claims to be telling us about another world about something behind the world we can touch and hear and see. You may think the claim false; but if it were true, what it tells us would be bound to be difficult, - at least as difficult as modem Physics, and for the same reason... If Christianity was something we were making up, of course we could make it easier. But it is not. We cannot compete, in simplicity, with people who are inventing religion. How could we? We are dealing with Fact. Of course anyone can be simple if he has no facts to bother about. (Mere Christianity, p.134)

睜眼說瞎話一派胡言-由中共鎮壓西藏說起-

--寫於總統大選前夕--

中共的頭子竟然敢說沒有派兵西藏,只是派出清潔隊而已;老公不屑地說﹕「當然囉,殺死了那麼多人,流了那麼多的血,還能不派人出來清掃乾淨?」中共顯然習慣撒謊,臉不紅,心不跳,公然撒謊,真是無恥至極。

中共為達到統治的目的,不擇手段的壓迫藏人,真叫我們看傻了眼。天安門事件冬眠了好一陣子,現在魔掌重現,胡作亂為一番,然後想辦法封鎖新聞,傳媒,想要 一手遮天。良心好像烙過的鐵,麻木不仁,顛倒是非,喪盡天良。其實若要人不知,除非己莫為。紙豈能包得住火? 感謝CNN 及網路,全世界的人都看到了。

巧的是本週恰是耶穌受難週,由不得讓我想到那些作假見証控告耶穌的人,全然用謊言捏造了告祂的不實把柄。假造宗教的理由,政治的理由來迫害抹黑 耶穌。當時猶太人的宗教領袖,為了鞏固自己的權利地位以及既得的利益,生怕百姓都去跟隨耶穌,他們就無法用宗教統治猶太人了。於是在夜間祕密的逮捕以及快 速地在宗教法庭審問了祂。又因為他們沒有判死刑的權力,所以又編造了一個政治的謊言到羅馬法庭去告祂,謊稱他是猶太人的王--- 一個沒有擁有一兵一卒的王,(因為耶穌是神,祂的國是屬靈的國度,祂要做我們心靈的王,祂並不在乎做世上的王)真是可笑,誰能相信呢?羅馬巡撫彼拉多雖 然查不出耶穌的罪來,卻為了自己本身的政治利益以及討好猶太宗教領袖和他們所慫恿煽動出來的暴民,同意釘耶穌在十字架上。判死刑的理由是耶穌是猶太人的 王,背叛羅馬皇帝。雖然彼拉多洗手表示自己的無辜,他卻無法逃脫流無辜人血之責。

歷史自有公斷,公道自在人心。如此橫行逆施,天理不容。

最近這几年,(幸好今年例外)每到復活節就會有人出來攻擊耶穌,扭曲抹黑耶穌,極盡其所能。先是暢銷小說Da Vinci Code(達文西密碼),雖是小說卻宣稱內容乃全然根據歷史,所以許多人受迷惑,相信它的一派胡言。接著Discover Channel 又匆匆爆料宣稱找到耶穌的『石棺』,說得天花亂墜,煞有其事,又是考古,又是DNA,統計,或然率,十分符合科學的樣子,卻是事先沒好好的查証,一堆烏龍 而已。一時也誤導了不少人,因為該電視台還蠻出名的。古語說:「盡信書不如無書」,現在我們要說:「盡信傳媒不如無傳媒」。無論如何,我們都應該好好去思考,去考証,不要隨便讓傳媒牽著鼻子走。善莫大焉!

天佑台灣!總統大選在即,但願大家不被任何傳媒所誤導。

真理是什麼?無罪判死刑嗎?



真理是什麼?無罪判死刑嗎?
--受難節再思彼拉多的判例--
Jesus before Pilate by Brian Jekel

受難節剛過不久,讓我們一 起來思考,兩千多年以前,是誰在受審判?耶穌或者彼拉多?表面看來,當年好像是耶穌在受審,其實今天我們從歷史上再去看這件案子,反倒覺得是彼拉多在受審,他的「不公不義」在受審。前後至少有三次他說,他查不出耶穌有什麼罪來.如果耶穌沒有罪,那麼彼拉多怎麼可以判耶穌釘十字架呢?

彼拉多諷刺地問耶穌:『真理是什麼呢?』意味著真理有什麼用?真理能當飯吃嗎? 真理能救人嗎?這世界上最要緊的豈不是權勢,錢勢而不是真理?給真理作見證,屬真理的人卻成了當權的階下囚。多麼地諷刺! 真理能幫助被誣告的人嗎?不見得,如果審判官是貪腐的話, 我們就不能期待公平,公正的審判。這是有錢能叫鬼推磨的世界, 不是嗎?況且,他問該問題時,並不是真誠想要知道答案,因為他沒等耶穌回答,掉頭就走。

(約18:33-3)… 彼拉多又進了衙門、叫耶穌來、對他說、你是猶太人的王麼。…耶穌答說、我的國不屬這世界.我的國若屬這世界、我的臣僕必要爭戰、使我不至於被交給猶太人.只是我的國不屬這世界。彼拉多就對他說、這樣、你是王麼。耶穌回答說、你說我是王.我為此而生、也為此來到世間、特為給真理作見證.凡屬真理的人、就聽我的話。 彼拉多說、真理是甚麼呢。說了這話、又出來到猶太人那裏、對他們說、我查不出他有甚麼罪來。

彼拉多審查耶穌的案子,三次宣告他找不到耶穌有甚麼罪。然而彼拉多卻將耶穌釘死在十字架上。祂的罪名是「猶太人的王」,好一個沒有一兵一卒的王?我們現在知道祂的確是萬王之王,萬主之主,祂是我們心靈的王,心靈的主,衪真是上帝。 拿破崙晚年失去他的龐大帝國,哀嘆他無法與沒有一兵一卒的耶穌相比。因為千千萬萬人願意為耶穌死。卻再也沒人願意為他效勞賣命了。

沒錯,彼拉多在猶太人面前洗手並表示流耶穌無罪的血,他沒有責任,不歸他負責。真的,他不用負責嗎?誰把耶穌判死刑的?難道不是他嗎?猶太宗教領袖按理豈不應當是公正的判官嗎?暴民卻由他們的嫉妒,陰謀,挑撥離間,搧惑鼓動引起的。然而,如果彼拉多是一位正義的判官,他就不會判耶穌釘十字架--歷 史上最殘酷的死刑。所有洗手的儀式也洗不掉他那雙沾滿耶穌無辜血的手。他能怪罪他人嗎?的確,他的政治生命受到威脅,受到綁架。如不從命,暴民將反告他不 忠於凱撒,背叛羅馬帝國。然而最終仍是他的判決。他豈能在整個歷史中逃掉他的責任,給人公正的交代?每個人都知道彼拉多就是置耶穌於死地的那位羅馬巡撫。 他不得不負責且無法把所有責任都推給他人。為了一己的政治利益,
政治生命犧牲公義及道德原則的人,常常會弄巧成拙和自食其惡果,遺臭萬年。

這也讓我聯想到319槍擊案。所謂的『真相真調會』真的是在調查真相嗎?他們真的是在尋求真理嗎?其實他們只想証實自己的偏見與揣測-- 也就是319槍擊案乃由阿扁總統自導自演,不管事實上這有多困難及可能性几乎是零。

李昌鈺博士是藍營自己邀請來的專家,也是起先受他們歡迎的人,他們自己的人。他的結論非常專業,驗證非常嚴謹,竟然不被他們所採納信任。他們情願聽媒體人,甚麼「xx小妹大」之類的胡亂揣測加上無限的想像編造。

他們真的是在尋求真理嗎?根據他們冥頑不化的態度來判斷,他們只是盲目地堅持自己的偏見,成見-- 就是被媒體誤導,洗腦
先入為主的成見。

最近,新聞報導在台灣有兩起類似的案件發生,子彈就真的夾留在受害者的外套裏,真是無巧不成書。這兩則新聞是否拿走了他們的疑慮,證實了319槍擊案並非自導自演?希望如此,當然那很可能只是我一廂情願的想法。信者恆信,不信者恆不信,不是嗎?這兩天又聽到有藍立委再度抄作319槍擊案,看樣子,這
鬧劇要閉幕,還不太容易呢,真是可悲。

真理與真實的確是非常重要。誤信毒藥為解藥乃是致命。如果有人做手腳,貼標籤,誤導人吃黑心藥品,食物,罪莫大焉。一味謊言抹黑,做假証人,顛倒是非,害人不淺,也可能置人於死地,可說舌劍唇槍,殺人不用刀。難怪雅各書 3:6說:「舌頭就是火、在我們百體中、舌頭是個罪惡的世界、能污穢全身、也能把整個生命在運轉中焚燒起來
並且是被地獄之火點燃的。」為什麼是從地獄裏點著的呢? 我再三推敲思考,很可能因為根據舊約聖經,審判必須基於二個或三個以上的目擊見證人,然後審判官得詳細調查考證他們的證詞是否可靠才能定案。也就是確定他們沒有撒謊才行。十誡亦嚴令我們不可做假見證,應是同樣的道理。遇到貪官污吏縱容惡徒做假見證而不查,則無辜血又得滿地流了。謊言抹黑, 做假証人,罪大惡極,豈可縱容,等閑視之?

申命記
19:15 人無論犯甚麼罪、作甚麼惡、不可憑一個人的口作見證、總要憑兩三個人的口作見證、才可定案。
19:16 若有凶惡的見證人起來、見證某人作惡、
19:17 這兩個爭訟的人就要站在耶和華面前、和當時的祭司、並審判官面前、
19:18 審判官要細細的查究、若見證人果然是作假見證的、以假見證陷害弟兄、
19:19 你們就要待他如同他想要待的弟兄.這樣就把那惡從你們中間除掉。
19:20 別人聽見都要害怕、就不敢在你們中間再行這樣的惡了。

台大女生宿舍傳槍擊 過程似319槍擊案
中廣新聞網 (2008-02-28 22:34)
  台大位於台北市徐州路的一處女生宿舍,26號發生一起疑似槍擊案,一名醫學院的女同學,先是在宿舍內聽到玻璃碎裂聲,接著感覺腹部一陣劇痛,原來才發 現,窗外飛來了一顆子彈,把這名女同學打傷,不過還好天氣冷,衣服穿得比較多,女同學只有肚皮有輕微的撕裂傷。至於台大校方立即報警,警方已經在現場找到 彈頭,初步研判應該是銅制的彈頭。

  至於學生宿舍附近,怎麼會發生槍擊?加上整個過程,和陳總統的319槍擊案十分類似,讓人匪夷所思,警方初步調查,嫌犯開槍的地點,可能是距離宿舍50公尺的開南商工校舍。

苗栗版319 彈頭卡夾克上  疑友陷害 男持槍報復射轎車
2008/03/02 報導記者:張興傑

開槍打人,不過子彈居然卡在對方的夾克上,相當的不可思議,苗栗市一名男子為了要尋仇,拿著改造手槍對著朋友駕駛的車輛射擊,不過其中一發子彈貫穿玻璃之後,直接卡在被害人的夾克上,讓警方相當驚訝。

被害人夾克上呈現彈孔一進一出的痕跡,警方到達現場還發現彈頭卡在夾克上,根據了解這起槍擊案是發生苗栗市饒平街,一名彭姓男子持改造手槍朝著一部轎車射擊,其中一發子彈所造成的結果竟然和三一九槍擊案類似。

其實彭姓男子和被害人是朋友關係,兩人數年前一起因案入獄,彭姓嫌犯認為遭到朋友陷害導致刑期較重,出獄後要求賠償不成才會購買改造槍枝報復。

總統大選前夕又爆發和三一九槍案雷同的案件,也令警方高度重視,不過偵辦員警也認為這顆子彈實在太神奇了。
