牧师的话 From Pastor’s Desk

Douglas5/23/2017 We now come to the 11th brief talks of Ecclesiology.  The topic is the Indestructibility of Church.  Two things we want to learn: First, what is the indestructibility?  Second, How does God maintain such indestructibility? 

今天我們第十一次來講《教會論》,今天我們介紹「教會的不可毀滅性」。對於不認識神的人來說,他們會從表面現象看,認為基督教會無法與世界上各個國家的光榮相比,但從聖經啟示的教會本質來說,她卻有無比的光榮,其中之一就是她的恆久性。我們有兩方面的需要認識:第一、教會的恆久性是什麼意思?第二、教會蒙保守的形式是什麼?
 
First, Indestructibility does NOT guarantee a visible church (or denomination) will last forever.  We don’t find such warrant in Scripture, nor in Church History (Rev 2:5).  As a matter of fact, Jesus implied there will be very few believers at his second coming (Lk 18:18)  Persecution, complacency, lawlessness, etc. all contribute to the declining of Christian Church.
首先,恆久性是什麼呢?錯誤例子是認為,某間教會、或某個教派,會存到永永遠遠。這很明顯是《馬太福音》16:18、《以賽亞書》54:10的錯誤解經。事實上,無論聖經、教會歷史,都讓我們看到某間教會、某個宗派是會從世界上銷聲匿跡的(啟2:5)不只是逼迫、富足、不法的事增多,都會使教會、信徒減少,耶穌甚至在論平日的禱告就發問說:人子[再]來的時候,會遇到有信心的人嗎?(路18:8,或譯「還會遇到天天禱告的人嗎?」)的確讓我們看到教會不一定會越來越多,反而可能會越來越少,但不至於連一個都沒有。
 
Then, does the indestructibility refer to visible or invisible church when Jesus said “the gate of Hell shall not prevail against my church”? (Mt 16:18)  Answer from the context: Jesus was contrasting [His] Church with [Gate of] Hell.  Obviously, if the Hell is invisible here in the context, the Church here is also invisible.  However, since visible church is the manifestation of invisible church and of the kingdom of God, she will last forever–but in what format does God keep his church?
那麼,主耶穌說「我的教會--陰間權柄不能勝過她」(太16:18)是指有形教會或無形教會呢?如果是指無形教會,誰不知道呢?如果是指有形教會,與上一段的理解有衝突嗎?其實,如果拿耶穌對比「教會:陰間」就可以知道他是指無形教會。然而,有形教會既是神國的外顯,就不會全部消失(徒1:8;太10:23)。
 
Second, God uses four methods to keep his church.
接下來,我們就要問,神用什麼方式保守教會呢?基本上有四個方式
 
(1) God uses persecution to purify his church.  He also exercise supernatural intervention and natural providence to keep the church (Acts 12:23; Is 54:17)
第一、神使用逼迫煉淨教會,也使用祂全能的干預、全智的護理保守教會(徒12:23;賽54:17)。
 
(2) The Spirit of Truth continually lead believers into all truth (Jn 16:13).  This is actually amazing when we read Christian church history.  Heresies of justification by works, saved by moral conduct, justification by love, denial of Trinity, denial of dual nature of Christ, denial of God’s righteous judgment, denial of substitutional death of Christ, etc. We wonder, and are amazed, how any one can still believe in orthodoxy when heresies are so rampantly everywhere every time.  Well, the answer is God’s Spirit of Truth has been given to us at the Pentecost, and He will abide with us forever (Jn 14:16-17; Mt 11:19; Lk 7:35; Eph 1:13; I Jn 4:6)
第二、耶穌在父右邊祈求,藉著真理的聖靈引導教會進入真理(約16:13)。回想教會歷史兩千年,各樣異端叢生:中古世紀「靠行為得救」的信仰被普遍接受;20-21世紀「靠道德得救」的錯誤普及度不比中古世紀差;否認神蹟奇事、否認三位一體、否認基督人性、否認基督神性、否認神的公義審判、否認基督十架代贖、離經叛道者比比皆是;其實我們會驚訝,怎麼正統教會的信仰還是存在?這是因為真理的靈住在真信徒當中,使智慧之子以智慧為是(太11:19;路7:35;約14:17;弗1:13;提前4:1;約一4:6)
 
(3) God uses Covenant of Grace to pass on the faith from parents to children (Gen 17:7).  It is possible to raise up moral, virtuous, successful children even by Gentiles.  But to raise up godly children, it is not automatically but costly to any believing parent.  Yet, such is a marvelous promise God gave to godly parents (Acts 2:39)
第三、神使用恩典之約,藉著父母把信仰傳承給敬虔的後裔(創17:7)。當然這不是自動的。要教導出有道德、有修養、有成就的兒女是可能的,連法利賽人、外邦人、有無宗教信仰的人都做得到。然而要教育出敬虔的後裔,卻是需要付上極大代價的。神在各個時代都有盟約的兒女,是從父母那裡領受信仰的(徒2:39)。
 
(4) God uses church evangelism and missionary works. This is in contrast to item 3 above.  Gospel is passed on to different ethnic group whereas their own people reject it gradually.  For example, early church was predominantly Jews and then shifted to Gentile; similar is 20-21 c. church shift from predominantly white to color people.
第四、神使用教會外揚福音來保守教會(徒18:10)。即使有些福音傳到外邦,自己族裔正在失落,神普世的救贖計劃,神保守的教會依然傳承(這與上述第三項是對應的)。例如:初代教會原是猶太人居多,然而漸漸就成為少數,變成外邦人居多;又如20-21世紀,世界教會原是白人居多,然而漸漸就成為少數,變成有色種族居多。
 
So wonderful, glorious, and indestructible is God’s Church.  God’s marvelous ways of preserving His church are all intriguing.  No wonder Charles Wesley when meditating on the New Creation of God, he sings “Changed fro glory to glory, Till in heaven we take our place, Till we cast our crowns before Thee, Lost in wonder, love, and praise.”
主耶穌基督的教會是永恆、榮耀的,上帝也用奇妙的方法煉淨、保守他的教會。難怪衛斯理思想神的新創造(教會)時會說:更新變化,榮上加榮,直到天庭常供奉,站立主前,擲下冠冕,奇妙愛中永讚頌。
 
This coming Lord’s day 5/28, we will continue the message from Acts 4:32-5:11, the topic is “Revival and Trap”  May God bless our worship and fill us with His Words, by which man shall thrive.
這主日 5/28 我們主日證道的經文是《使徒行傳》4:32-5:11;題目是「復興與陷阱」。願我們一起敬拜神,也一起領受神的話語;願神再次讓我們看見他的榮耀
