<赤子之心>4/14-4/20/14

說:「父啊,天地的主,我感謝你!因為你將這些事向聰明通達人就藏起來,向嬰孩就顯出來。父啊,是的,因為你的美意本是如此。」(路加福音10:21)

“…He said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth. You have kept these things hidden from the wise and from those who have much learning. You have shown them to little children. Yes, Father, it was what you wanted done.” (Luke 10:21 NLV)

默想禱告: 我倆不顧影評只給两星, 被俗世貶評並揶揄為 “令人厭惡的宗教宣傳的爛片子… 宗教思想是一種精神疾病” 的惡意攻擊,還是選擇在復活節前两天傍晚看了《天堂是真實的》這部電影。我想不信有天堂地獄的人大可留在家, 没人强迫你看, 又何必處處詆譭譏諷基督徒的一切言行舉止呢! 就好像我也不願隨便把哈利.波特Harry Porter充滿魔幻, 行邪術的故事罵作向孩子灌輸巫術妖法的不道德商業行徑。美國電影觀眾沉湎於嗜血暴力的感官剌激,已經是大眾娛樂賣座的必要條件。對於小朋友從小就墮入殺人如麻的電子游戲, 成年人陶醉在越來越荒誕的 “吸血殭屍”Zombie 的血腥世界中, 這一部完全沒有血味,只有人情味, 一家人過著彼此相愛的正常生活,又敬畏上帝, 關愛鄰舍的小城故事, 很自然就成了心靈被屏蔽的無神論、享樂自由派群體眼中必需打壓的對象。電影《天堂是真實的》是從售罄千萬本的真實故事書改編而成, 是美國內布拉斯加州的托德. 包 莆(Todd Burpo)牧師在講述他四歲兒子在瀕臨死亡NDE的體驗中與耶穌面對面的故事的10年後,好萊塢把它搬上大屏幕。片中幾段驚人的對話反映了小科爾頓在天 堂的經歷。當兒子因闌尾破裂躺上手術台時,托德對神的作為感到大惑不解。他內心痛苦掙扎,直到兒子康復4個月後,才聽到了孩子的講述。 “耶穌和一些天使下來把我帶到天上,” 小科爾頓說。他通過耶穌手上和腳上的“釘痕”認出耶穌。“我在上帝寶座的房間,因此我可以看到這一切是什麼樣子。” 雖然情節超級感人, 深深扣動心弦, 但我肯定不會把這套片子看為福音電影, 因為它壓根沒有解釋到孩子真正信的是什麼內容, 更沒有談論十字架救恩的信息。這是一部百分百很温馨的家庭故事, 透過一位四歲純真可愛的孩子所經歷一連串神奇的心靈錄像, 領我們跨進另一個超自然、超時空、超理性, 有存在意識的世界。例如其中小科爾頓向母親描述一段天堂異象的細節: “你有個孩子死在腹中”,但實際上並沒有任何人告訴過他母親曾經流產的事故。“在天堂里,這個小女孩向我走來。她告訴我她死在了你的肚子里,”男孩的話震驚了父母, 也令我悚然心驚。令我感到震慄的不僅是小科爾頓竟然能說出母親一度流產, 觸動她隱藏已久不為人知內心創傷的疤痕; 使我更寒心的是這個異象背後的象徵意義-自1973-2011美國自願性墮胎數目已超過五千四百多萬, 這群蓄意殺害自己腹中已經成形的胚胎的父母, 將來如何面對創造生命的上帝! 神學家R.C. Sproul直言不諱說: 「墮胎是現今人類很大的邪惡。」千萬有靈魂、有生命的己死胚嬰, 除了神還有誰為他們伸冤? 美國社會容許國民任意墮胎, 和中國政府實行强制墮胎政策, 两者同樣是文明社會的悲劇。現代人寧可相信怪力亂神, 膜拜一切自我包裝的偶像, 但對基督信仰的超世價值卻相當敵視。不接受有絕對黑白對錯的價值觀念, 以人本自由派為中心思想的後現代社會群體, 祇要一聽到聖經所定義 “罪” 這個詞, 就會馬上感到剌耳, 相當敏感; 因此千方百計想要把任何帶有審判性, 道德性的思想體系乾脆拆毁, 將一切道德敗壞的行為徹底理性化, 世俗化,相對化, 或引用科學的知識來推翻歷久彌堅、永恆不變的啓示真理。由此我們可以從現代人崇尚的聲娛宴樂, 視聽傳媒的品質中, 窺探出社會、精神文化面貌日趨墮落的端倪。所有掩飾罪惡, 美化內心醜陋的社會改造工程, 只會更加扭曲人性, 使人更難領悟至高至善者的意念, 更無法建立與創造主任何溝通的渠道。惟有存著一顆虛己悔罪的赤子之心, 認識並接受主耶穌十字架救恩的真理, 人才能恢復與天父美好的關係, 參透衪美善的旨意, 奉主耶穌聖名禱告, 何阿們。(陳熾弟兄分享)

Meditation & Prayer: Rotten Tomatoes give a low rating on “Heaven is for Real”, laced with disparaging remarks like this: “Don't be fooled, it's not hope or love that Heaven Is For Real is peddling. It's a divisive paean to a bogus cultural divide created by a coalition of opportunists who don't mind making money selling that same poisonous lie.” We watched it anyway and enjoyed the movie tremendously. The secularists, atheists, liberals are programmed to bashing anything that is Christian, or faith based, to a level of extreme hate beyond any human decency. On the contrary, I wouldn’t even want to lower myself to comment on the cable zombie frenzy or Harry Potter series which are as irrational and hysterical as ancient mythology. People would rather be entertained by extreme violence and vampire blood sucking silly plots, than watching a gentle heartfelt family story, because there are less and less families with healthy relationships. So the abnormal minority takes over the normal majority in every aspect of culture, almost depriving other’s right to explore and to enrich their spirituality. They can’t even tolerate a little boy's astounding story of his trip to heaven and back, and let an innocent child’s experience to warm our hearts; despite this is a fact based story. It was based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name: HEAVEN IS FOR REAL brings to the screen the true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his son's extraordinary, life-changing experience with the world. Todd Burpo and Sonja Burpo, the real-life couple whose son Colton claims to have visited Heaven during a near death experience. Colton recounts the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth ... things he couldn't possibly know. Todd and his family are then challenged to examine the meaning from this remarkable event is a gentle, heartfelt movie that allows viewers to decide for themselves. What this movie has captivated my attention is not so much on the issue of near-death-experience, but the powerful imagery of a little girl who greeted Colton in heaven and claimed to be his sister, when his mother had a miscarriage sometime ago. I was extremely upset by this scene, as I ponder over the fate of 54 million fetuses and late term babies aborted since 1973-2011 in America. http://www.all.org/nav/index/heading/OQ/cat/MzQ/id/NjA3OQ/ Where are they and who will speak on their behalf?  Dr. R.C. Sproul said in his blog: “Abortion is THE great evil of our day.http://rcsprouljr.com/blog/ask-rc/rc-wont-pastor-preach-abortion/  It is ironic and hypocritical as I witness the United States grant asylum to women from China claiming forced abortion (literally millions of forced abortions performed every year in China), while we permit legal abortions voluntarily on a daily basis, where is the justice?  Unless one repents and confesses his sins, it is difficult for him to comprehend God as he loses the purity and innocence of a child, allowing sins to damage his potential to see what others do not see. Only through the salvation of Jesus Christ, a person will restore his righteousness and integrity to face God with the true understanding of his holiness, in Jesus holy name I pray, amen.
