教会会员须知 – A & B

全部:每一个真正的基督徒,都有责任加入一个忠于基督及其圣言的地方教会或宗派,成为其中的一个会员(徒2:47;9:26)。   圣经:要决定加入哪一个教会,首要的考量当是这个教会在何等程度上密切地遵从圣经,或是在何等程度上忠于合乎圣经的改革宗信仰告白。友谊、热情,传道人的技能等等,不当成为加入一个教会的主要理由。

圣经中所启示的圣约父母的义务 – Z

热情: 在训练孩子方面,你要心里火热。因为这是你的天父对你的委托。在很多方面,孩子的得救和在基督国度里的用处,都是与你对上帝所委派这一伟大且具有挑战性的托付是否忠心连在一起的。因此,唯愿当别人谈及你的时候,就像上帝对亚伯拉罕所说的话那样:“我眷顾他,为要叫他吩咐他的众子和他的眷属遵守我的道,秉公行义,使我应许亚伯拉罕的话都成就了”(创18:19)。

喊叫:在基督徒教养方面,喊叫是没有一席之地的。因为罪的缘故,对自己的孩子大喊大叫必是一个极大的试探。但是,你必须天天寻求主的恩典来抵制这样的试探。基督徒家庭必须是和平的。倘若你必须对你的孩子喊叫,那就意味着他需要打屁股了。当你经过祷告使自己安静下来,然后就去打他的屁股,但是不要大喊大叫。如果你发现你的孩子们互相大喊大叫,那可能是因为你曾经对他们大喊大叫(最为糟糕的是,你还对你的配偶大喊大叫过)!

Yelling. There is no place for yelling in Christian upbringing. The temptation to yell at your children will be great because of sin, but you must daily seek the Lord’s grace to resist the temptation. […]

期望:所有作父母的都对自己的孩子有很高的期望。但是,你要牢记:你要以合乎圣经的、而不是属世的期望培养他们。一般来讲,属世的期望关涉的就是学业优秀和比赛名次。合乎圣经的期望所关涉的就是基督徒的品格和在主的国度里的用处。但是,你要牢记:即使合乎圣经的期望也当以祷告和谦卑之心调和,深信最终而言,主是爱你的,也爱你的孩子,一切都在祂的主权的掌管之下。你要抵制每一个把自己的孩子与别人的孩子进行比较的诱惑,避免因你的孩子没有达到你的期望就以强烈的不满或使之尴尬的表情来贬低他。换句话说,不要强逼你的孩子达到你的期望。如果他们没有按照你的期望发展,不要失去盼望。要在主里有盼望。他们身上有属主的标记,你要把他们作为圣约之子为他们祷告。

Xpectation. All parents have high expectations for their children. But remember to cultivate biblical rather than worldly expectations. Worldly expectations in general have to do with academic excellence and competitive edge. Biblical expectations have to […]
