明報頭版有十架,威威喎!

是日(16Mar)明報頭版,是一個很多字的廣告。大大個十字架,四隻大字「地震,海嘯」然後是一大堆文字。

文字劈頭一句是:

「斷然不是一個假設,讓我們儆醒,起來留心上帝的教導,主基督必快再來:」

然後quote 了《彼後三8-13》

然後又再一次呼籲大家放下成見,同心合一,建造城市……

然後有一大段文字,是把不同經文拼湊出來的「信息」,講末世時人怎樣怎樣不信上帝,自高自大云云…..(經文全出自新約,不贅)

之後又繼續quote經文,勸人要遵主的教導,要和睦,要無可指摘。

文章的下半,有人在fb貼了出來,如下,請大家好好閱讀一下:

講完一輪怎樣神叫他們禱告守望香港之後,最後一段更是言之鑿鑿,說他們去報館落廣告之日,正是日本地震之時。而兩大段文字之下,是一個福音演唱會的宣傳,叫大家去。

有幾點可以留意的。

  1. 文章的處名是「復興城市國際教會協會」,google這個名,沒有甚麼得著,言則他們行事比較低調,背後人物並未查得出。
  2. 聚會查詢,要向「磐石傳播協會」,這是一個美加機構,都是搞media的,但在香港也好像不太活躍。
  3. 這個聚會的福音歌手,不是香港出開那一班(高__正,陳__恩…..),有兩個是韓國的。

以上三個觀察,說明了這件事不是平時搞開野果班基督徒搞的。

好,評論開始。

在下對這篇又quote 經文又有見證的頭版廣告,慎之敬之。慎,因為他們的邏輯完全不通,可以說是沒有邏輯可言,內容疑似說理,但又毫無說理的品質可言。敬之,是因為他們的行動,(我相信)是出於對上主的感召,而非惡意。在下為此不存憤怒,但卻感到可悲。這篇廣告仍然是另在下相當懊惱,因為它的重點相當模糊。

這篇廣告的目的究竟是要叫罪人悔改?還是要叫教會合一(於他們)?還是所有經文見證都是幌子,目的是演唱會?還是,他們根本沒有「想」,只是按「感動」而行?

另一個懊惱,是因為機構來路不明,但卻非常有錢!這樣的 setting 完全刺激了我的好奇心,我好想去呀!

但最令我懊惱的,是這篇文中正了我上一篇文所講,果然有人會出來訴諸末世,借海嘯警世。這樣算是傳了福音嗎?我不知道,我不敢說好說歹。畢竟,總有人會說:「可能有人因為呢篇野信主呢!」。嗯。

老老實實,作為信徒,我讀完這篇頭版,都感到相當困惑,唔知佢想點。你想想,不信的人讀起來會怎樣?我可以講咩呀?er…求主使用囉。

  1. are you a christian actually? err.. you know what you shouldn’t look how wealthy is the church that importantly. Indeed you should be more devoted to your religion.Your words seem to deliver the message that others shouldn’t believe it and what they say is fake. It is not a deceptive organisation, just a quite well-established church in other cities of Asia but just not in HK. As a christian you are a bit too skeptical.
    (sorry for being a bit angry, but that’s what i want to clarify and insist. )

    1. thanks, I am not judging by who they are, but what they say. I don’t really care it’s a mega church, a wealthy church or what. What that newspaper shown is a lack of understanding of the bible and revelation. And, a skeptical Christian is still a Christian.
      welcome for further discussion.

  2. Re Annoymous and Chandoremi,
    refer to your post, I believe part of what they say. Their poster on newspaper tells us really well the Day of Judgement is soon. (please don’t stop reading here, more below)
    I would say, refer to the Bible.
    Don’t know if you have seen this passage, in gospel Mark 13 – this is what Jesus said when disciples asked about the end of the day. (Below, passage is from NIV translation)

    5 Jesus said to them: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 6 Many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and will deceive many. 7 When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 8 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.

    LET NO ONE DECEIVE YOU… Beware of the fake Christ (from 1 John)

    1. re Karina,
      as a Christian, i also believe in the end of days, the bible, and the warning of Christ, that’s why I am furious about people using the bible wrongly, speaking prophecy wrongly. I do not doubt their intention but their carelessness. thanks for sharing, welcome for further discussion.

  3. personally i’m very skeptical of the “article” on the news paper. While we still could not exclude the possibility that God is really working, I feel this front page ad is completely silly and I do not agree with the way they tell the public about this.

    I know there’s an urge to spread the gospel, but this is clearly not a very clever and appropriate way, to use sufferings and disasters. The gospel is the message of love, grace, reconciliation, peace, joy and hope. While the message from the frontpage doesn’t build people up, but brings anxiety, fear, worries…

    suffering and disasters are such a very difficult topics to talk about. As the loving and merciful God so loved the world He DO NOT wish to see his people suffer When the writer of the ad mentioned “righteous anger” it makes me feel a bit confused. If God loves us so much and even sacrifice His son to take our sins. Jesus took God’s anger and suffered the consequence. He gave us new chance so start all over again through Jesus. I don’t see it very logical that God is angry with us again and need to use disasters to punish us.
