基督徒的社会道德

<基督徒的社会道德> 12/6 – 1212/10

 

“你们的话,是,就说是,不是,就说不是。若再多说,就是出于那恶者。(或作是从恶里出来的)”(马太5:37)

 “我实在告诉你,若有一文钱没有还清,你断不能从那里出来。” (马太5:26)

“All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.” (Matthew 5:37)

 “Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.” (Matthew 5:26)

 

默想祷告Meditation & Prayer: 近日聽了一个讲座, 讲员除介绍各项政府福利常识外, 还特别提示在申请福利时, 要尽量以巧妙的方式避免公开真实的个人财産资料, 並揚言当面对现实紧急需要的时候, 新移民或外籍人仕可以用不同藉口來获取和達到申请福利的條件要求。聽完后感到寒心。我自已的职业是執法的, 每天遇到假结婚、作假文件、诈骗、瞞税、刑事犯罪的案件很多, 但違法之言竟出自一位自称基督徒的口中, 实在令我感到驚愕。基督徒不是完全人, 偶有过犯是可以理解, 但我不能接受故意倡導不法行为的態度。如果神的子民处处向现实低头, 向俗世妥協, 所反映的是一种有名无实的信仰, 成为别人的绊腳石。求主憐悯, 讓我们追求圣洁, 做一个奉公守法, 有原则的基督徒, 奉主耶稣圣名祈求, 阿们。(陈炽弟兄分享)

I attended a workshop few weeks ago. The subject was on application for various social benefits that an immigrant or alien may qualify under emergency situations. To my amazement, the speaker daringly advocated employing legal loopholes to file for unsubstantiated claims. As a law enforcement officer, I have encountered numerous cases that involve marriage fraud, counterfeit documentation, perjury, tax evasion and criminal convictions, yet for the first time I am totally stunned by the blatant misrepresentation by a so called Christian to advise others in an evasive manner. Christians are not perfect, understandably so, and commit sinful acts inadvertently. But knowingly circumventing the law to receive benefits is not only illegal, but also unethical.  If God’s children compromise and lower oneself to the secular standards; or worse, lead others to commit iniquities, there is no true value in one’s faith. Pray that the mercy of our Lord motivate us to pursue holiness so as to become a Christian who is law abiding, and a person with integrity and principles. In our Savior’s precious name I pray, amen.
