不是因爲祂多麽需要我們的崇拜與愛，而是只有從愛祂仰望他我們才真正能活出最美好最幸福最有價值最被愛充滿的那個自己。因爲祂才是原始設計者，— 祂知道我們存在的意義和價值爲何，祂有我們一切所需的鑰匙和資源和愛。我們不是憑空需要愛的，我們是intentionally被造成需要愛的，祂能給我們真正的養分，nurture us into our best and most beautiful with His Truth, His true love.
You are more complex than reductionistic NLP and modern psychology can manage – only God offers the full multidimensional repairs you truly need
Every book on emotional and psychological therapy is reductionistic. No other book treats you as truly complex you are, as the Bible.
You are NOT just a body. NOT just emotions. Not just your will. Not just your conscience. It’s a complex mixture of those and more things and you cannot possibly properly treat yourself by just one of the ways offered on the market.
Only God your real creator can see EVERYTHING and can truly see through you and understand what you really need.
Excerpt: “What is the tree of life? It represents not just endless eternal life but FULLNESS of life, of absolute satiation of the deepest desires. Creative desires to accomplish things, aesthetic desires for beauty, romantic and relational desires for love, epistomic desires for knowledge, etc. and the tree of life represents absolute satiation a million times over a million times magnified of the amount you think you’d want, and that’s the tree of life. But, …”
第一部譯作。分享第一本譯作的青澀（巧得書皮也是青色哇哈）。以後若要繼續翻譯的話定還得更多加油改進。 My very first published translated book for my all-time favorite apologist and preacher, Tim Keller 🙂 I praise God SO MUCH for making this happen. Praise be to God! It is absolutely incredible I am able to contribute. And, I will improve for the next one by the Amazing Grace of God!
Jesus’s resurrection is at the very heart of historic Christianity. In fact, the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ is both a central doctrinal belief of the faith and the primary evidence for the truth of the religion itself. Given the importance of Easter for Christians, it is appropriate for us to consider a dozen evidences for the resurrection of Jesus. For greater depth on these points, see the recommended resources at the end of the article.
1. Jesus’s Empty Tomb
According to the Gospels,1 after Jesus succumbed to death through crucifixion, some of his followers prepared his lifeless body for burial and placed it in Joseph of Arimathea’s tomb. Three days later the tomb was discovered empty, for Jesus’s body had vanished. The empty tomb is a critical part of the resurrection account, for if Jesus’s body had been recovered, then Christianity would have been falsified right as it…
Making decisions is one of the most difficult things we do. If it is that hard to choose between the mint chocolate chip and the rocky road, how much more do we agonize over this church or that church, this school or that school, this job or that job, this person or that person? We pray, we sweat, we weep, we read, we toss, we turn. Why this fear? Why this agony? Why these sleepless nights? It is the uncertainty …
I think natural selection is somewhat of a misnomer. Even natural processes can be God directed.
For example, the cold winters were planned and executed precisely and intently, down to the exact temperature and duration, to cause necessary intended changes to happen on earth…
Here is a slightly less vague example to help, before I dig up the details on the one given above.
I was in the Chicago Field Museum and was wowed out of my mind by the guide’s introduction of Lignans – introduction of new type of cells, buidling blocks of trees, that cannot be digested by anything on the planet at that time, and then all these were buried and turned into pressurized into coal millions of years later. That blew my mind. Imagine x years of trees grown all over earth rapidly then when they die they just accumulated pile high. Then the pressure and their own weight (plus maybe some geology and tectonics) made them into fuel that we use and rely on today. How did this cell lignan suddently come to existence and why? And why wasn’t there anything that could digest it??
Science can discover and observe but only history, philosophy, theology can tell us why. Even all the human disciplines added together cannot know everything, so how can One human discipline claim know everything and have the right answer?
