单身神学理想:上帝有叫有些人单身吗?有 (Matthew 19:12). 但那是什么样的人?什么叫为天国的缘故?一定不是那些认为自以为自己可以独立的人,若是要论自立而单身,肯定不是在上帝理想旨意里行的,最多只是在祂怜悯的许可下,不然的话,肯定会在婚姻问题上,离婚率比一般人还要多。这样看来,真正在上帝恩典上赐下做单身为天国的缘故的人,与那些最多在祂怜悯的许可下而单身,像是为天国其实是为己的人,是不难辨别的。

When People Say They are Leaving a Church

This is largely based on my experience with Rev. Laura Lin's (whose chief problem is idolizing gifts/talents) church but not limited to hers only in my experience. I have already criticized Lin, so there's no need to do any stomping … Continue reading

Moonism - and its Ilk

It seems to be an Asian thing for cult founders to consider themselves the divine Christ themselves. WMSCOG (World Mission Society Church of God) is very similar to Moonism - Unification Church. China has the "Eastern Lightning", etc. COMPARE AND … Continue reading
