Các anh chị em làm gì khi bắt gặp hình ảnh khiêu dâm?

Một ngày nọ một người trẻ mượn máy điện thoại di động của một người bạn ở trường học để chơi trò chơi trên đó. Em khám phá ra rằng máy điện thoại này đã lưu giữ hình ảnh khiêu dâm trên đó.

Christian biết chắc rằng người bạn của em cần phải làm gì đối với điều đó, nên Christian đã giúp em ấy thấy được sự cần thiết để loại bỏ những hình ảnh khó chịu đó. Christian trầm tĩnh giải thích điều đó có thể là tài liệu nguy hại biết bao. Em nói: “Nếu là một người cha, thì chắc hẳn bạn sẽ không muốn con trai của mình coi điều đó.”


How can God be one in three persons?



How can God be one in three persons?

Christians call this the Holy Trinity (literally: ‘Tri-unity’).

To explain this, we must distinguish between God’s nature and his manifestation to us. God’s nature is oneness, yet he has revealed himself to us in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. All three are God, yet are also distinct persons within his one nature.

We can think of the Holy Trinity mathematically: 1 x 1 x 1 = 1 rather than 1 + 1 + 1 =3, which would imply that there are three gods.

Είναι καλό να μην έχουμε καθόλου θλίψεις και πειρασμούς;



Είναι καλό να μην έχουμε καθόλου θλίψεις και πειρασμούς;

Πήγε ένας Χριστιανός στον Πνευματικό του.

—Πάτερ, εδώ και λίγες εβδομάδες αισθάνομαι πολύ καλά, δεν είχα καμία θλίψη και πειρασμό. Αυτό είναι καλό ή κακό;

—Όταν δεν έχεις πειρασμούς σημαίνει ή ότι οι δαίμονες σ’ άφησαν ήσυχο επειδή τους υπηρετείς χωρίς να σε πειράζουν ή ότι ο Θεός σου παραχωρεί μια περίοδο ησυχίας για να συνέλθεις. Αλλά μην υπερηφανευτείς επειδή τότε η Χάρη του Θεού φεύγει από εσένα. Ο Θεός το επιτρέπει αυτό όχι για τις αρετές μας, αλλά επειδή είμαστε αδύναμοι. Αν ήσουν τώρα έτοιμος για μεγάλη δοκιμασία ο Θεός θα στην έστελνε. Αλλά πολλές φορές αν και νομίζουμε ότι είμαστε έτοιμοι για μεγάλες πνευματικές μάχες, ο Θεός γνωρίζει καλύτερα την ψυχή μας, Εκείνος ξέρει ότι αν νικήσουμε τώρα σε μια δύσκολη πνευματική μάχη ίσως θα υπερηφανευόμασταν ή ότι αν θα είχαμε μια δοκιμασία, μια μάχη η οποία δεν είναι απαραίτητη ίσως στην επόμενη δοκιμασία να μην είχαμε την δύναμη ν’ ανταπεξέλθουμε.

Ο ίδιος είπε˙ όταν βρίσκεσαι σε ειρήνη και δεν πολεμεισαι, τότε περισσότερον να ταπεινώνεσαι˙ μήπως αν εισχωρήση ξένη χαρά καυχηθούμε και παραδοθούμε σε πόλεμο˙ διότι πολλές φορές ο Θεός λόγω των αδυναμιών μας, δεν παραχωρεί να παραδοθούμε, για να μην απολεσθούμε





How can Jesus be both God and Man?



How can Jesus be both God and Man ?

In John 1:14 we read that “…the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us…”

This is what Christians call the Incarnation: Christ was truly God and yet truly man. His two natures were not merged or confused in any way, but were totally separate. Christ could identify with every human emotion (he wept for example – See John 11:35), yet as God he had the authority to forgive sins (see Luke 5:20).

Paul expressed his belief in Jesus position as truly God and truly man as follows:

“For in him dwells the whole fullness of the deity bodily” (Colossians 2:9).

How can I know if God exists ?



How can I know if God exists ?

Evidence for God’s existence can be found in several ways:

1, In creation – we see nature all around us, for example in flowers, landscapes and mountains. Creation implies a creator.

2, In design – a computer is more complex than a chair. A hierarchy of designs from simple to complex implies that there must be a supreme designer of all of them. An analogy was provided by William Paley (1743-1805) and runs like this: Suppose someone found a watch in an empty field. The complexity of the design would lead one to conclude that it could not be the product of random events, but rather of some creative intelligence.

3, In morality – the sense of right and wrong. Where does this sense come from ? This points to a supreme lawgiver.

4, In causality – every effect must have a cause. Thus the world must have been caused by something else. However, there must be something that is uncaused, something not dependent on anything. That something is God.

5, In contingency – we observe that some things are dependent (‘contingent’) on other things for their existence. However, not everything can be contingent, so there must exist something that is not dependent on anything else (i.e. God).
