Bye bye, Bo Xilai, China’s Last Red Guard.
With his final appearance in court yesterday for an appeal, he’s shot down again and the verdict remains.

The biggest “Sin” of Bo is not corruption as we thought. It is his over ambition to be the topman of China and yet he had used the wrong method. He got himself trapped in the deep shit hole of Cultural Revolution!
The conclusion of Bo’s failure – He Couldn’t Think!

End of an era of Red Guards… no more Red Alert.

What’s the reality here?

The Lord’s Prayer 属灵国度和教会的復兴始于讲台(圣道) 的大能和梼告会的復兴

JOSHUA (pastoral , HK )
12 Oct 2012

They asked, why are (most of) the traditional churches no longer able to revitalize their believers and grow the church?

许多人都在问,为何当今的传统基督教会已经失去能力?教牧基本上无法带动会众的真正属灵成长以促使教会復兴。

The key reasons are,
–  too tied down by it’s own doctrine and rituals;
–  lack of “revolutionary” (visionaries) pastoral staff not only to lead but “feed thy sheep” properly;
–  the spiritual power of pulpit is lost;
–  failing to really See God’s Kingdom.

其主要原因在于,
–  过于守成。只关注于教会礼仪的进行。
–  缺少有远見和”強勢”的主导教牧。(羊群完全自主式的追逐喜好和到処吃荤)
–  失去讲台(宣讲圣道)的上帝所启示的大能,只是在讲故亊和圣经历史,与课堂没有分别。
–  无法使会众”真正看見属灵的亮光和上帝国度”。甚至教牧本身也”没有看見”。

So when believers in church on Sunday, reading (praying) The Lord’s Prayer, are  they been guided properly to see God’s kingdom for what they have been praying for all the time?
Each Sunday there are believers seeking to be fed with spiritual enlightenment by pastoral staff who stand on pulpit. Yet every Sunday many will go away merely attended another (Biblical) history class.
In The Book of John, hence Jesus reminded Peter to feed his sheep properly.
So much so, most traditional churches these days faced with the challenge of that their believers wanting endlessly, good story-telling preachers on the pulpit. Good story-telling is very different from strong spiritual revelation and God’s calling from the pulpit.

每当会众在星期日(主日) 颂读主祷文吋,他们可有真正看見並巳接受上帝国度于心灵中?
常常犮生的現象是每个主日敬拜上帝的过程只不过是唱几首诗歌和又上了一堂圣经历史课或是故事演说。
记得耶稣曾对彼得所说的,”你牧养我的羊” 吗?
教牧若无法有能力去带领会众和教会肢体有属灵的看見,那么,主日敬拜和圣道启示的大能巳淪为一场礼仪秀(a ritual show),教会又如何復兴?!
怪不得会众只能越来越追求一场”好听” 的讲道了。這与属灵的看见和亮光(上帝启示) 差远唉!

Same for church ministry work and activities, leaders and believers must see the Light. Church leaders who even fail to sustain strong support for Prayers meetings will not see the spiritual fruits.

同样的,教会肢体不在于做了多少,而在于”属灵的看见”… 当一个教会失去会众积极参与祷告的动力(包括长執等教会领袖),其光景就有如出埃及后被困于圹野之地。。。

The next time when we use The Lord’s Prayer to pray, oh Lord,  be my Light.

愿上帝启示我们能有更大的属灵看見,”。。。愿你的国降临,愿你的旨意。。。“

GOD BLESS ALL

Singaporeans Talk About 5Cs. Look At This Good Doctor

8 Oct 2013

Singaporeans spending their rest days and weekends at shopping malls and property sales as well as car showroom!!!

They should look at this doctor & his family, and start to reflect.

The news report mentioned about this Singaporean medical doctor and his family spending the last 15 years in China’s remote regions, helping the locals their to establish better environment health and provide them with low cost medical care (sometimes free medical services). He also trains the local medical staff.

Dr. Tan said that such sacrifices are worth much more than life that owns big luxurious cars and just living a personal good life. He’s a Christian.

Simply put, Dr. Tan is one of very few Singaporeans who understanding the greater calling in life in making others (less privilege) live a better life.

Great story reported by the press.

FCBC.KHONG.SACKED PREGNANT STAFF.LABOUR LAW

What FCBC Has To Show To The Society?

After reading the above news report as well as “I asked the minister to send me to jail” (an interview of pastor Lawrence Khong by the press) published previously, there’s good reason even for Christians to deeply reflect on their faith.

Without going into further argument, people at the coffee shop have the following to say,

–  FCBC (or rather Khong’s) reaction to the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) is merely a rebellious act, trying to show to their own followers that Khong’s judgment to sack his pregnant staff without due compensation or consideration remains “correct”.

–  Khong as a pastor basically had forgotten that, as in the Bible even Jesus spoke out loud about follow the law. So, Khong and FCBC have demonstrated a completely WRONG teaching about Christianity!!!

–  the whole saga acted “in faith and principle” (sacking the pregnant staff) by FCBC (or rather, Khong) remains an opposite illustration of Love & Caring.

Coffee shop folks urge that, even if “you” are a Mega Church, should not demonstrate the wrong side of Upholding Principles to the society.

God bless ALL.
