灵魂得救 [Salvation of Soul]

书卷:哥林多前书(新约)
作者:保罗

哥林多前书5章5节:“要把这样的人交给撒但,败坏他的肉体,使他的灵魂在主耶稣的日子可以得救。”

今日默想:教会不可以给肉体无限制的庇护与保障,以免扩散并污染其他的肢体,所以必要时需要施行“截肢手术”,以保全整个身体。教会的处置是为了让犯罪的人认识到自己的危险处境和改过自新的必要性。罪人既因惩罚而降卑和改正,就可能恢复信心和德行的生活。教会惩罚的目的不是为了报复,而是要救人脱离毁灭。我们的肉体将会灭亡,但重要的是我们的灵魂得救。

Book: 1 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

1 Corinthians 5:5 :“deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.”

Today’s Meditation: Church cannot provide unlimited protection and shelter to flesh to avoid other members from getting contaminated. “Amputation” is necessary to protect the whole body in such case. The handling method by church in such way is to make sinners to realise their perilous situation and the necessity to repent. Sinners who humble and repent will be able to revive their faith and moral life. The purpose of church for setting up such punishment is to save people from perish instead of revenge. Our flesh will perish, but more importantly is the salvation of our soul.
