亚当·汉密尔顿(Adam Hamilton)名言

If God is not sending earthquakes, destroying economies and inflicting pain upon human beings, what is God doing? God works through people, calling them to help their neighbors in need. God comforts His people, walking with them even 'through the valley of the shadow of death.'

如果上帝没有派遣地震,破坏经济,给人类带来痛苦,上帝在做什么?神藉著人工作,呼召他们帮助有需要的邻舍。上帝安慰他的子民,甚至与他们一起走过死亡阴影的山谷

Some Christians see the biblical teaching on homosexuality as reflecting the culture and times in which the Bible was written and not reflecting God's eternal perspective on homosexual people. Others believe these scriptures represent God's timeless will for how human beings practice intimacy.

一些基督徒认为圣经对同性恋的教导反映了圣经所处的文化和时代,并没有反映上帝对同性恋者永恒的看法。其他人相信这些经文代表了上帝永恒的意志,人类如何实践亲密关系。

亚当·汉密尔顿

I am a follower of Jesus Christ. The Bible is my primary way of knowing Him and what it means to follow Him. And I am a pastor, and I teach and preach the Bible to my congregation every week. But the Bible is not a manufacturer's handbook. Neither is it a science textbook nor a guidebook for public policy.

我是耶稣基督的追随者。圣经是我认识他和跟随他的主要方式。我是一个牧师,我每周都要给我的会众讲讲圣经。但圣经不是制造商的手册。它既不是科学教科书,也不是公共政策指南。

The senseless killing of 20 children and their teachers and principal at Sandy Hook Elementary School was not part of God's grand plan. It was a thwarting of God's plan. It was the misuse of human freedom.

在桑迪胡克小学,20个孩子和他们的老师以及校长被无谓地杀害并不是上帝宏伟计划的一部分。这是上帝计划的挫败。这是对人类自由的滥用。

亚当·汉密尔顿

I suspect that here theists and atheists would agree: Human beings have within them the ability to choose evil or good. We wake up each day facing the age-old struggle of good and evil. In some situations, mental illness clouds our judgment.

我怀疑在这里有神论者和无神论者会同意:人类在他们内部有选择善与恶的能力。我们每天醒来都要面对古老的善恶斗争。在某些情况下,精神疾病会影响我们的判断。

亚当·汉密尔顿

Many Christians do not believe God sends tornadoes. But they do believe that God walks with His children through the storms, that He sends His people to help after the storms, and that with and through God, there is always hope.

许多基督徒不相信上帝会制造龙卷风。但是他们相信上帝和他的孩子们一起走过风暴,在风暴过后他派他的子民去帮助他们,和上帝在一起,通过上帝,总是有希望的。

亚当·汉密尔顿

God seldom suspends the laws of nature, just as God does not remove free will to keep evil people from doing evil things.

上帝很少中止自然的法则,就像上帝不会剥夺阻止坏人做坏事的自由意志一样。

亚当·汉密尔顿

We don't need mandatory, non-sectarian prayers read over the loudspeaker to 'put God back in schools.' God never left the schools. God is still at work through the hundreds of thousands of gifted teachers and administrators, committed parents, and passionate volunteers who seek to help give our children 'a future with hope.'

我们不需要通过扩音器朗读强制性的、非宗派的祷告来“把上帝放回学校”,上帝从未离开过学校。上帝仍在通过数十万有天赋的老师和管理者、忠诚的父母和热情的志愿者工作,他们寻求帮助给我们的孩子一个充满希望的未来
